MENLO PARK, Calif. -- The Portola Art Gallery presents â€œLocal Colorâ€ - new pastel and oil paintings of the Monterey and San Francisco Peninsulas, as well as other recent works by San Mateo artist Jan Prisco.
Capturing the diverse natural beauty around her, JanÂ paints plein air at locations that range from the oak covered hills of the San Francisco Peninsula, to theÂ dahlia fields of Half Moon Bay,Â to the breathtaking ocean views of the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur. She will be unveiling fifteen new paintings during the month of November at Portola Art Gallery.
While pursuingÂ a career in high tech sales, Jan spentÂ many ofÂ her spare hoursÂ cultivating her love ofÂ painting by studying oil and pastel from the leading artists and teachers in the Bay Area.Â Now retired, Jan teaches pastel painting at Allied Arts, oil/acrylic painting for a local school district, and portraiture and figure painting to watercolorists.Â She hasÂ received numerousÂ recognitions as an artist,Â most recently as Featured Artist by the Pastel Society of the West Coast.
