I just learned of the death, on Tuesday, of artist Patrick Merrill. He lived and worked in Southern California, maintaining a printmaking studio in Covina. He served as director and curator of the Kellogg University Art Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona and was an active leader in the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art for many years. He was a friend and mentor of many. He died of colon cancer at age 61.
