Artists:Patricia OBrien-Iacuzzi and Gail Turchetti
Location: Irondequoit Mall LLC
285 Irondequoit Mall Drive
Built as a regional shopping mall in 1990, Irondequoit Mall is anchored by Kaufmanns, Bon Ton and Sears. In December 2002, the ownership of the mall changed and Madison Marquette Realty Service was assigned the management and redevelopment responsibilities. Madison Marquette is committed to transforming Irondequoit Mall from a struggling regional retail shopping mall to a thriving and diverse property offering retail, office and other creative space.
In Irondequoit on the Move, Patricia OBrien-Iacuzzi and Gail Turchetti combine their skills and techniques to create scenes depicting Irondequoits historic past and its present. Pat, a retired art teacher and local artist, works with acrylics or oils in realistic and impressionist styles. Gail, a full-time nurse, enjoys painting as a way to relax. Together, they were thrilled when asked to work on this project for the community.
