APRIL 27 - MAY 10, 2018

Carol is primarily a painter, also working with mixed media, collage, and printmaking.  She starts with collaged and pigmented paintings on board, and scores, scrapes, and abrades, and marks, creating rough textured surfaces.  Washes of pigment are added, distilling the surfaces and infusing them with a powerful and balanced presence.

Recent works are concerned with environmental and communication issues.   Dalton’s sensitivity to her materials and her regard for her subjects, brings depth and authenticity to the pieces.  She inspires non artists and artists alike with a layered beauty and intensity to her work.

Carol studied at the Santa Barbara Art Institute from 1971-1974. She has shown in the Bay Area for many years since moving there after art school, and has work in museum, corporate, and private collections. She maintains an active studio practice in Benicia, California.
