Patrick is 26 and has recently been diagnosed with stage three Anapalastic Oligodendroglioma, a very rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. He needs our help. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he is the artist who founded and directed the non-profit alternative art space Guerilla Arts in Dallas, Texas. This was a space that provided pivotal early support for and the opportunity for growth and experimentation to artists such as: Gabriel Dawe, Gary Farrelly, Shawn Smith, Jennifer Caine, Anne Albagli, and Leah Foster among others. Guerilla Arts was awarded Best New Gallery by D Magazine in 2011, just before it closed.
