Critics have said:
Re "Sound Check, Teatro Diego", "Entr'acte" series......a very intelligent homage to Diego Velasquez' "Las Medians". A bravo to the artist. Di Bella's work ("Entr'acte") is a swirl of frenzied theatrical activity and bedlam in a riot of strong brushwork and color impossibilities....F. Lennox Campello, DC art critic and blogger (dc art news) 8/09
Re "Entr'acte" series...."The energy is volcanic in Patricia Di Bella's psychologically charged paintings of the theater".......Sarah Tanguy, Curator of the Art in Embassies Program 7/07
Re "Earnest Trio"......"This mixed media piece is just glorious in its use of collage and paint. The artist has distilled contemporary and ancient influences....compelling faces emerge, recalling the relief ornamentations of Byzantine iconography.".......Juror, Rebecca Jones, Fredericksburg Center for Creative Arts 3/08
2015.....Juror Award for "Cue to Cue"..."Entr'acte" series....Maryland Federation of Art, Circle Gallery, Annapolis
2014.....First Place Award....."Blues in the Night"...."Strange Crew" series....Fredericksburg Center for Creative Arts, Fredericksburg, VA
