Dolores Witt started her Art Career at Disney Studios during WWII, and later at MGM on Tom & Jerry cartoons and in 1972 and moved to Visalia. She was an established and acclaimed, Multi-Media artist and continued studies in her craft throughout her adult life. She won many “Best In Shows” while living in the Central Valley. This retrospective show will exhibit Delores’ wide array of paintings and drawings that she created over her lifetime. Arts Visalia is honored to display her work as an opportunity for our community to remember Dolores’ life and legacy.
The exhibition will be on display from September 1st through September 24th, 2021.
“It is never easy to say goodbye to a dear friend especially when you have been friends for close to five decades, but unfortunately, we don’t have a choice in the matter. Dolores left this world in her sleep on Sunday. She was such a beautiful, talented and unique individual. If you are lucky enough to own one of her watercolors or an oil painting, you are very lucky indeed and should treasure it. In 1985, I commissioned an oil painting from Dolores for our 15th wedding anniversary. It has an honored place in our home and will always be a wonderful reminder of our friend. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.””
