Lamorinda Arts Council presents a virtual gallery of original oil paintings by featured artist Hilary Mills Lambert in the Virtual Art Gallery at Wilder, Saturday March 4 through Saturday April 1. It’s no secret that animal characters have been featured in books, films and storytelling through the ages. Saint Saȅns’ Carnival of Animals comes to mind when viewing her paintings. It is one of the most joyous pieces of music written for young musicians. Lambert’s life-long love of animals is evident in all her work; it pulls you in. Her titled oil paintings on display, available for purchase, include: “Happy Cow” 16″ x 14,” “Three Pig Painting” 30″ x 40″ and “Border Dog,” 9″ x 12″. To view her work go to https://lamorindaarts.org/online-galleries.
Lambert, of Alamo, has focused on drawing and painting animals since 2020. “Inspired by the critters in my life and my previous job at Sesame Street, the creatures, sometimes realistic and sometimes whimsical, translate into those universal human traits. Currently, I’m on the Board of Ivory Orphans, subsidized by the African Wildlife Trust,” she said. Learn more at http://www.millsgallery.com/
