How I See It, a Solo Exhibition by Dolores R. Santoliquido

Dolores Santoliquido, an exceptional artist of flora and fauna, will be showing her work at Les Beaux Arts Gallery Sunday, May 21, through Friday, June 30, 2017.  

During the past forty years, Santoliquido has made her career as an illustrator, a fine artist and a studio art educator. Since 1990, she returned to painting the subject matter she has the greatest passion for. She is inspired by the beauty of our natural world including flora, fauna and landscapes.  She works in watercolor, graphite, pen and ink and specializes in working with mixed-media acrylic and color pencil. This is a slow, painstaking technique which enables the artist to have a great deal of control over the media.

Santoliquido has been an adjunct professor of studio art at Manhattanville College, Purchase, New York since 1982, teaching courses in Fundamental of Drawing, Illustration and The Business of Art. She is an instructor in Botanical Art and Illustration at the New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, New York. She holds a BFA and a Masters Degree in Art Education from Manhattanville College.

Santoloquido's work has been published extensively in books produced by Taunton Press, Crown Publishers, Random House Publishers and Knopff Publishers, among others. Her work has graced the front cover of many publications including Orchids Magazine. Her exacting illustrations have been exhibited in several one woman shows including The Hunt Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Botanical Garden, NY, and The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. She is an active member of the American Society of Botanical Artists.

Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located at the Round Hill Community Church, 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich. The Gallery is open Sunday, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.; Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.; closed Saturday and Monday, May 29.  For more information, call 203-869-1091 or visit roundhillcommunitychurch.org
