February 27, 2015, 05:00 AM By Susan Cohn Daily Journal

Linda Dulaney
‘Luma’ is among the portraits by Linda Dulaney on exhibit at the Peninsula Art Institute in Burlingame March 19 through April 26. The public is invited to a reception for the artist scheduled on March 28.

THE PENINSULA ART INSTITUTE PRESENTS AN INTIMATE LOOK AT PORTRAITS AND STRUCTURE WITH PAINTER LINDA DULANEY. Painter Linda Dulaney is featured in a solo exhibit at the Peninsula Art Institute from March 19 through April 26 with a reception 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 28. Dulaney, who is known for her portraits, is founder of the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier (BACAA), which offers an intimate setting where students have the opportunity to learn one on one from masters of realism. Dulaney said: “I am inspired by the beauty of the human structure and form. I can spend endless hours drawing and painting from the model to discover those beautiful forms. There is such a mystery and connection to be conveying the human form.” The Peninsula Art Institute Gallery is across the courtyard from the Peninsula Museum of Art’s main entrance at 1777 California Drive in Burlingame and is open the same hours as the museum, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Visit www.peninsulaartinstitute.org for more information or call 692-2101. Admission is free.
