Classical Paintings and Drawings

Tom Verdon’s career has been all about people. He began with a love of art, segued into Counseling, taught Painting and now spends his time as a Figurative Painter.  Working in oil paint, Verdon’s portraits capture quiet, contemplative moments. Tom describes the process of portrait painting “as fascinating, wonderfully rewarding and just plain fun.”

Parviz Dadras is a retired engineering professor who is a self-taught artist. Working mainly in Acrylic paint, his small, elegant works are based on personal narratives and impressions.  There is a story contained in each piece that leaves the viewer intrigued and guessing.

 Artists Reception: November 15th 6-9 p.m.

The show will contain some classical studies of nudes.
