Linda Salter’s still life paintings in oil are featured in the exhibit “In a Classical Mood,” which opens Sunday at the Portola Art Gallery. A reception for the show will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. March 7.
Salter enjoys painting in a variety of mediums and capturing a wide variety of subjects, but for still life works she says she is drawn to oils. “Whether using vivid colors or a limited palette, I’m excited by the play of light and shadow that I can achieve in an oil painting done in a classical style,” she says.
After retiring as a community college chancellor more than 10 years ago, Salter has focused her attention on creating art. She now has a studio at the Peninsula Art Institute.
“In a Classical Mood” will be on view through March 31. The Portola Art Gallery is at the Allied Arts
