New Inverness is a series of paintings by Patricia Fabian that were inspired by Darien, a coastal community in Georgia. Locals know Darien, GA by its original name, New Inverness.
The "New World" brought "new" settlements to Georgia, and when the Scottish Highlanders, at the request of General Oglethorpe, inhabited the area, they named it after their major city in Scotland - "Inverness." It means "city built on the mouth of the river Ness." Here, "New Inverness" was built on the banks of the Altamaha River.
Patricia Fabian has mingled abstractions with representational works to capture the spirit of the coastal area.
