Patricia Prendergast: The Serenity of the California Landscape
April 17-May 31, 2021

Since retiring from a career as a computer programmer, Patricia has been able to indulge her love of nature and art. She chose pastels as the best medium to portray the serenity of the landscape of her native California. She draws inspiration primarily from various locales along the American River, the hills of Marin and North Lake Tahoe. However, her paintings are more an evocation of an emotional response to the transcendence found through nature than a rendering of a specific place.

 

Although most of her work is done in the studio, she enjoys painting out in nature to hone her ability to see the light and the colors. In fact, she feels the greatest benefit she derives from painting is the way it changes how she sees the world when she isn’t painting. Everything is more vivid – the beauty of light and shadow in the trees, the subtlety of the color of clouds, the sparkle and reflections in water.


Layaway Plan for Artwork Purchase
If you are interested in purchasing one of our available artworks, but are not in a hurry and would like to make payments overtime, we offer a wonderful layaway program.

First, staff will clear the layaway sale with the artist. A down payment of 30% of the total purchase price will enable clients to secure an item. Patrons can make payments with cash, check, or credit card for up to 90 days. After the deposit is paid, patrons can make equal payments, or pay off in full, during this 90 day time period. A layaway contract will help you outline a payment schedule that works for you and the Gallery. There is no charge for the Layaway Plan. The down payment is not returnable once it is paid. Any other payments that are made on the artwork cannot be returned if the buyer decides not to purchase the artwork.

This Layaway Plan is available, subject to approval by staff and Artist, for any piece that is $250 retail and over and can be safely stored.  All purchases must include sales tax (8.25%).

Once the balance is paid in full, you will be notified to pick up the artwork.

The Pence Gallery accepts the following methods of payment:

– All major credit and debit cards, including


– Cash, and personal checks with identification
