Gil Dellinger


Gil Dellinger has participated in over 300 group and one person exhibitions. He is a retired Professor of Art at the University of the Pacific. He has inspired many young artists through his talent for teaching and his own artwork, having won the Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence and Professional Contribution in 1990. A Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, Dellinger excels in his pastel painting.

Painting from life, his work captures majestic landscapes, peaceful pastoral scenes, the drama of the Pacific Ocean, florals, and any scene that catches his eye. His masterful technique is extraordinary. Dellinger feels the chalk is an extension of his heart, and captures his feelings like no other medium. Itís no wonder that he has been called a "Master Pastelist" by the Pastel Society of America. Dellinger also paints beautifully with acrylic, egg tempera and oils.
