Hayes to hold art show, book signing

The writings and art work of Ofa Irvine Jallu (1907-97) will be on display Sunday, May 20, from 3-5 p.m. at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.

Local author Vivian Chepourkoff Hayes, Jallu’s daughter, has turned the work of her mother into a book.

Hayes will be signing copies at the art show.

“Ofa Jallu brings a unique vision to her art,” reads a passage from Artists of Southern California. “Starting with the realism of a figure or a bouquet of flowers, she uses her ‘inner rhythm’ to create an individual way of seeing the world.”

Jallu was California native who earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in art from University of California, Berkeley.

She continued her studies by participating in numerous workshops and taught art at the high-school and college level.

She experimented in a variety of media, including traditional and nontraditional methods using pastels, pencils, ink and collage.
