Palos Verdes Art Center
April 4-May 25, 2014 - Venice based artist Betty Gold’s geometric serigraphs (silkscreen prints) were gifted to the Palos Verdes Art Center Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education by Roger Markle in 1980. These works are from three portfolios produced in California in the early 1970s: Arrows, Holistic Images, and Surprise Packages. The serigraphs in this exhibition accentuate the geometric and bold graphic style that Gold is known for.
Betty Gold: Color Blocking opens Friday, April 4, 2014 in the Norris Gallery of the Palos Verdes Art Center, 5504 West Crestridge Road, Rancho Palos Verdes. The exhibit will run through May 25, 2014.

The exhibition is organized by Palos Verdes Art Center Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education. The exhibition is curated by Joe Baker, PVAC’s Executive Director.
