1983 – New York City

Patricia Cameron Peardon began her artistic career as an actress. As Judy Graves, the title character in Max Gordon’s production of “Junior Miss,” she was on Broadway for two and one-half years and then toured with the show throughout the U.S. and abroad. She also played many roles with the American Shakespeare Festival and was invited to perform at the White House for Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary. She was soloist-narrator with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Erich Leinsdorf’s version of Mendelssohn’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and was commissioned by the US Library of Congress to prepare and star in a one-woman program, “Amazing Miss Alcott,” to commemorate the centennial of the publication of Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women.” Patricia originally studied portraiture and clay sculpture, eventually turning to lost-wax casting. Her lyrical figures first captured the public’s attention when displayed in New York in Tiffany’s windows, where they have appeared three times. Her work appeared in the Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Philharmonic Hall, the Northwood Gallery and galleries and museums in New York, Palm Beach and many other cities in the US and abroad. She was an active member of the New York chapter of the Northwood National Women’s Board and a trustee of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Theatre Arts (IASTA). She stated, “I wholeheartedly applaud Northwood’s appreciation of the imperative of a creative relationship between the arts and business, for our nation’s future. And I’m deeply impressed by the University’s achievements inspired by that all important concept.” (Deceased 1993)
