Portola Art Gallery Presents Jan Prisco's "California Beauty"

Portola Art Gallery Presents Jan Prisco's "California Beauty"

EXHIBITION: "California Beauty" -- pastel paintings by Jan Prisco

DATES: December 1 - 31, 2020

Portola Art Gallery at Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park, CA  94025, 650.321.0220,

HOURS: Monday - Saturday, 11:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.


The Portola Art Gallery presents "California Beauty" -- pastel paintings by San Mateo artist Jan Prisco. While there will be no formal reception due to COVID-19 safety precautions, Jan will be at the gallery on December 12, 17, and 18, as well as by appointment.

Known for her vibrant, colorful paintings of California scenes, Jan paints at locations that range from the oak covered hills of the San Francisco Peninsula, to the flower fields of Half Moon Bay, to the breathtaking vistas of Pescadero, Monterey, Big Sur, and beyond.

Jan treasures the abundant and diverse natural beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area, and her fine art paintings in oil and pastel allow collectors to memorialize an experience or place dear to them. Enjoying nature personally -- whether listening to the breaking waves of the Pacific, watching the light play on the leaves of an oak tree, or savoring the warmth of the sun on her shoulders while she paints -- creates feelings of connection and contentment. Painting onsite, in the open air, is challenging and dynamic: the light changes, the sea moves, the trees sway in the wind. Jan’s wish is to bring these experiences and feelings to others through her paintings.

In addition to exhibiting her work at the Portola Art Gallery in Menlo Park, Jan teaches plein air workshops, conducts classes at University Art and Atherton Art Foundation, and has taught plein air workshops for Filoli. More information about Jan’s work is available at her website:
