LANCASTER – The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) will feature a new exhibition by artist Tina Dille at the Elyze Clifford Interpretive Center at the Prime Desert Woodland Preserve. The artist’s reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30. The exhibition will run from through Oct. 29, 2023.
Dille’s exhibition, The Muse, reflects the wonder and personalities of Penut, her rescued, semi-tamed raven. Her artwork echoes inspiration from the natural wildlife and domesticated animals of the Tehachapi Mountains. The personalities of the animals she coexists with fuel her distinctive animal portraits, giving life and spirit to each friendly face.
Dille began her artistic career at a young age. Early on, she was drawn to the livestock and ranchers in her hometown of Jerome, Idaho, and the backyard creatures she discovered when her family moved to Southern California. As an adult, Dille operated a small ceramics business that created and sold hand-painted ceramic animal figurines nationwide. She relocated to the Tehachapi Mountains in 2006 to focus on fine art and immerse herself in the area’s natural wildlife.
