See artist Hilda Kilpatrick create a painting on site at the Museum of Ventura County Agriculture Museum in Santa Paula, on Saturday, October 13, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

The demonstration is free with paid museum admission. Visitors can also see her work in the exhibition entitled: Fields of Flowers: Paintings by Hilda Kilpatrick, at the Agriculture Museum through October 28. 

Inspired by California landscapes since moving here from her native Peru in 1988, Ventura resident Kilpatrick paints the local scenery with concern that it may be gone or drastically different in the future. “By capturing places on my canvas, they remain timeless,” Kilpatrick notes. Her colors and brushstrokes reflect the influence of early California painters as well as the Impressionists. 

Kilpatrick’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous galleries and exhibits throughout the county, and at the Museum of Ventura County in Ventura. She was the recipient of a City of Ventura Artist Fellowship and won the Founders and People’s Choice Award at the 70th Annual Santa Paula Art & Photography Show. She has been featured in national publications such as SkyWest Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine and the Los Angeles Times, and her work is in private collections in Europe and South America.
