Photo: Patricia Donovan’s ‘An Evening at Terra Bistro’ on display at Vail library
Patricia Donovan’s painting “An Evening at Terra Bistro” is now hanging above the fireplace at the Vail Public Library. Donovan grew up in a family of painters and musicians but began to take her passion for creating art seriously after she developed (as the principal) an elementary school for the arts within the Littleton Public Schools. Studying first at the Denver Art Museum and later at the Denver Art Students’ League, she found her way to figurative painting. In her work “An Evening at Terra Bistro,” you will find the influences of Ron Hicks and Kim English, her teachers, who demonstrate movement, light and drama in their paintings. The piece depicts four young women sitting at a table, while the fifth young woman, whose back is to the viewer, reveals something remarkable. Call the library at 970-479-2184 to learn more.
