Pacific Palisades artist Jeanne Allen will speak on “Color Field Contemporary Art: Including Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis and Helen Frankenthaler,” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27, at the Women’s Club, 901 Haverford Ave.
Allen studied painting and drawing with Raymond Eastwood, sculpture with Eldon Tefft and Bernard Frazier and oil with Frederic Taubes at Philbrook. She also studied watercolor in various workshops, ceramics with Jane Heald and collage techniques with Jeanne Dunlap.
She and her husband, John Allen, had two sons, Keith and Roger. The family moved to Pacific Palisades in 1963, and Allen taught at University and Palisades High Schools and also at Revere Junior High.
Allen’s award-winning paintings and photographs have been shown by the Malibu Art Association, The Ebell Club and Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains.
She has had several one-person shows at the Pacific Palisades Library community room; her current show is available for viewing through February 28.
