Prizm, Way to Present Skyscapes; Art Lecture/Demo

Posted Jul 10th, 2009 by Annette Jensen  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Toledo.com


Prizm Creative Community and Way Public Library will co-sponsor a lecture/demo by landscape artist Lanna Pendleton Hall on Saturday, July 25, at 1 p.m. This event, part of the Way Library Adult Summer Reading Program, is free, and refreshments will be served.

This talented artist from Montpelier, Ohio, will share her award-winning paintings which focus on the sky. These paintings referred to as “skyscapes” capture the interesting weather patterns of northwest Ohio. The artist begins with photographs of the sky snapped seconds apart. She then analyzes a sequence of 15-20 photographs for color, value, shape patterns and spatial illusion. For 29 years she has captured the infinite variety of colorful cloud, sun, atmospheric combinations on stretched linen canvas.

After earning a bachelor of science in education with a specialization in art, Lanna Pendleton Hall received a master of arts and a master of fine arts, with a focus on painting, from Bowling Green State University. She taught art to students in grades 4 -12 for 31 years. She created a curriculum called “Stepping Stones” introducing drawing and other media. Since her retirement six years ago, she has had three solo exhibitions.

Ms. Pendleton Hall’s work has been included in area, national and international exhibitions including the Toledo Area Artists Show and the Toledo Federation of Artists’ permanent collection at the Toledo Museum of Art, the National Midyear Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, and Watercolor Ohio, the Ohio Watercolor Society’s annual juried exhibition. She also received the Molly Morpeth Canada Award.
