“Back to Her Roots,” a new collection of oil and acrylic paintings inspired by artist Alice Weil’s passion — the rolling hills and majestic oak trees of the San Francisco Bay Area — is the February featured exhibit at the Portola Art Galley in Menlo Park.
There will be a reception for the artist, who is a Menlo Park resident, at the Gallery on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
In this new body of work, Alice has followed her original artistic inspiration back to the rich green grasses that blanket the local hills in spring, slowly turning golden in summer, and finally fading to the palest wheat color in fall.
Her paintings reflect the power and strength of the Bay Area landscape and transport the viewer to a quiet, relaxed place. More examples are available on her website.
The Portola Art Gallery is located in the Allied Arts Guild at 75 Arbor Road.
“Bay Area Springs Hills” (24×30, acrylic, 2014) is one Alice Weil’s featured paintings
