Rinconart Studio and Gallery is pleased to feature impressionist DJ Lanzendorfer on Third Saturday Art Walk on Nov. 16 from 6-8 p.m.

Lanzendorfer will be showing a preview of her new paintings based on the endless parade of singular moments in time.

Visitors can also view her new collection of abstract hand painted silk scarves in beautiful fall colors.

California artist Lanzendorfer has more than 30 years of experience in her field. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, she showed an early interest in art that has only increased with time.


Commercial art past

In her 20s, Lanzendorfer studied art at Lewis and Clark College in Oregon before returning to California where she started several successful art-driven companies.

Her interest in stained glass in the early ’70s led to her company Rainbow Glass Works, where she made large windows and oval portable window panels in the style of L.C. Tiffany.

That business soon grew into the field of commercial art. Lanzendorfer created a successful international design business that included creative design, advertising in national magazines, graphic art, layout and printing.


Back to her first love

In the ’90s, Lanzendorfer returned full-time to her first love — painting. Always exploring new techniques, she works in a variety of media, including oils, pastels, graphite and watercolors. Her work reflects the natural beauty of California as well as the people who live here. But she is never limited to one subject and has explored themes as small as a grape cluster to as large as the indigenous people of Mexico and the South West.

She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society Inc., Placerville Arts Association and the El Dorado Art Council. She has been affiliated with the Art Workshop and the Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County.

Lanzendorfer can be reached at her studio at 530-644-1098 or by e-mail [email protected]

The gallery welcomes guests to meet the artist and view her new works and the works of other exceptional artists showing at Rinconart Gallery, 440 Main St. in Placerville.
