Pat Bereskin is an art instructor and owner of Beréskin Fine Art Gallery and Art Academy. Pat’s first oil painting was a cityscape. She remembers that it took a long time to complete but taught her many fundamentals of the art process. Pat grew up in Bettendorf and recently moved her gallery from Davenport to the Foster Music building. “I was so happy to bring art and art education to Bettendorf,” says Pat. “With a dozen of our artists already involved in painting outdoors, it just seems natural to bring other painters to the Bettendorf riverfront for inspiration. I invite the public to come down to the riverfront or the evening reception to encourage the artists.” Artwork from the day will be on display during the evening’s festivities.

For additional information on the paint out and to register please contact Pat at the gallery, 2967 State Street, Bettendorf or bereskinartgallery@gmail.com.

Beréskin Fine Art Gallery and Studio represents twenty-two full time artists along with rotating guest artist exhibits. They offer classes for all ages and skill levels through the gallery’s art education programs. Their goal is to provide the community a warm and friendly environment conducive to collaboration and learning about art.
