Teresa Silvestri exhibits animal paintings at Portola Art Gallery in March
“Art & the Animal,” an exhibit of new animal watercolor paintings by Teresa Silvestri in on display at the Portola Art Gallery in March. Teresa receives her inspiration from our long time companions — the animals who share our homes and are part of our families, as well as the sentient beings that populate our wetlands, forests, and yards.
Her realistic and expressive animal portraits are set in both natural and whimsical settings. While Teresa’s painting style is known for its softness, her passion is capturing the essence of her subjects within their eyes. She is best known for her paintings of rescued rabbits, which she hopes raises awareness for shelter and rescued animals in need of adoption.
An award-winning artist, Teresa’s work was recently made part of the permanent collection at the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.
A reception for the artist is open to the public and will be held on Saturday, March 10, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The Portola Art Gallery is located at the Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park.
“Bunny Buddies” (12×12″, watercolor) is one of the featured artworks in Teresa Silvestri’s March exhibit, “Art & the Animal,” at the Portola Art Gallery.
