For Patricia Kay, going to see Mayan ruins with her husband, Ken Rayna, was more than a travel experience. The ancient temples hidden in the tropical forests of Mexico and Central America sparked a 12-year art project and a deeply personal spiritual journey. “This has changed me for sure. I never saw it coming,” says Kay, a 57-year-old artist who lives in Galway. “The Maya: An Artistic Homage,” her solo show at Fulton-Montgomery Community College, is a collection of 175 artworks inspired by Mayan culture.
