Katrina Vanderlip, grand-daughter of the Founding Father of Palos Verdes, holds art show
I just attended a wonderful showing of gorgeous water color paintings by Katrina Vanderlip, grand-daughter of Frank Vanderlip, the ‘founding father” of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
Katrina Vanderlip s watercolor exhibit captures the beauty of Palos Verdes Peninsula landmarks including Malaga Cove Plaza.
The following are excerpts from an article in the Daily Breeze about the show: “Katrina Vanderlip payed homage to the picturesque childhood she experienced on the Palos Verdes Peninsula with her first watercolor show yesterday at the Terranea Resort.
Her work is inspired by local landmarks – Malaga Cove, Wayfarers Chapel, the Portuguese Bend peacocks, of course, and more.
Vanderlip is the granddaughter of the “Founding Father of Palos Verdes,” Frank Vanderlip, who bought 16,000 acres of the Peninsula in 1913 and began developing the land. After his passing, her father, Kelvin Vanderlip, continued with the land’s development.
Though she currently lives in Sagaponack, on New York’s Long Island, the family still owns a house in the area and Vanderlip says she will always consider the Peninsula home.
The event was more of a fundraiser with her watercolors on sale and 20 percent of the proceeds going to the Palos Verdes Art Center.”
Katrin’s artwork was wonderful and really captured the incredible natural beauty of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
