Elizabeth Louise Dunlap Patrick, a Rock Hill native, was born in Feb 1936 in Rock Hill. Lib was an avid supporter of the arts. She gave freely of her time and patronage to the Arts Council; served on the Gallery Committee and underwrote the awards for the annual Juried Competition for nearly ten years. Lib was a generous and ardent participant at the annual art auctions for many years, and she collected pottery from North and South Carolina potters whose work she championed. She also sponsored activities and events for the Yorkville Artist Guild. She supported her alma mater, Winthrop University, serving on alumni boards and reunion committees. Because of her generous support of the arts at Winthrop, the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery was named in her honor in 1999. Also, Lib was among the first group of honorees for the Medal of Honor for the Arts.


We honor Lib’s legacy and we welcome her daughter Kathy Patrick Wilson who is continuing her mother’s legacy by supporting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the Arts Council’s Annual Juried Competition.
