Exhibit Tour

Friday, June 24, 2022

Artist led tour of the exhibit: Free and open to the public. Under the latest County and State Health Guidelines.

An Artist’s Journey, a fine art exhibit featuring local artist Pat Ley will be on display at the Los Altos Hills Town Hall from March to September 2022. 

Pat Ley was born and lived half her life in the English countryside. She has drawn and painted since she was very young. She works both plein air and from photographs in a style that can be called classically European. Her interpretation of what she sees and feels is expressed in every composition, in the texture and color that is evident in all her pieces.

 Having lived in several countries, she found that the local art culture strongly influences how the world is seen. Living in Connecticut and working at the Silvermine Arts Center, she learned from Bob Reed, a professor at Yale, how to look at and how to see into the very heart of her subject. In France, with a family of three small children, she focused on pen and ink drawing – from lobster pots in Britanny to clothes on a washing line in Bievres. In California, where the light is so much brighter and clearer than in Northern Europe, her challenge was to avoid the European Impressionist method and develop her unique style.

 Her recent paintings have been primarily done in plein air. Part of the Peninsular Open Air Painters group, the artist saw the different facets of the Bay Area, from Alviso to Princetown Harbour. Pat Ley also drew and painted from life at the Palo Alto Art Center and she had the opportunity to work with clay, finding that art in three dimensions is as fascinating as in two.

She now has a large home studio with a kiln, where she can work with friends, ensuring a sharing of skills and ideas in both painting and pottery, as she continues her artistic journey.

Art walk and talk tour of the exhibit: Friday, June 24, 2:00 – 4:00 pm at Town Hall. Free and open to the public. Under the latest County and State Health Guidelines.
