Dorothy Feldman

My informal art education began by observing my father's line drawings demonstrating the principles of perspective. My more formal art education began at JHS 80 Bx, when my artistic potential was recognized and I was placed in what was referred to as a"special art" class. How fortunate to have attended public school at a time when art and music classes were not considered time consuming "extras" but part of a well-rounded curriculum! Subsequently I attended the High School of Music and Art and was a Fine Arts major at Hunter College.

I am currently actively retired with time to pursue interests previously "on the back burner" clubs, travel, art making, etc. I take drawing (colored pencil/graphite) and watercolor classes on a regular basis--balancing the discipline of portrait drawing with the more spontaneous nature of watercolor painting. My artwork, often inspired by my travels has been exhibited at various Riverdale Art Association exhibits and included in the juried student art shows of the 92 St Y. My current passion for "abstract design photography" has been included in multiple juried online gallery exhibits from the Marin Society of Artists, the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, the San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center, and the Colorado Red Bluff Gallery, among others.
