DECEMBER 7, 2018 – JANUARY 2, 2019

Opening Reception Dec. 7, 6–9pm

Palos Verdes Art Center is pleased to announce DAEL PATTON:

ABSTRACTION, opening with an artist reception December 7, 6 to

9pm. One of PVAC’s most beloved instructors, Dael has taught at

Palos Verdes Art Center for over thirteen years. Her expansive abstract paintings demonstrate masterful control of color and composition while achieving the artist’s goal of “not overshooting the mark.” Originally focusing on realism and quite adept at drawing from life, she entered her path as an abstract painter while teaching at Idyllwild Arts, a practice the artist describes as “more difficult” than traditional painting. Though surely a challenging foray, her works display an ease and sureness that belie the effort, an attainment that has driven many experienced art students to learn her secrets.
