A graduate of the San Francisco State University M.A. program, Gil Dellinger became a full professor at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, where he taught courses in drawing and painting. After receiving the Distinguished Faculty Award for professional contributions and teaching excellence in 1990, and the Everhart Teacher/Scholar Award in 1995, Dellinger retired from teaching in 2000. He then was named a trustee of the Haggin Museum in Stockton, and was active in organizing a series of plein-air exhibitions. One of them was a three-year project in Yosemite Valley in which 25 artists painted the park within that time period. An exhibition of these works was held at the Haggin in 2001. Following 9/11, Dellinger and painter John Cosby from Laguna curated a plein-air exhibition titled "From Sea to Shining Sea" that traveled to nine museums. Dellinger has been appointed a Signature Member and Master Pastelist of the Pastel Society of America, and has been represented in over 40 exhibitions across the country including the 1997 Forbes Magazine Exhibition in New York (Bronze Award recipient). His landscapes record the luminous colors in the land and sky, dramatizing their appearance by simplifying forms and emphasizing the relationship between light and shadow. Source askart.com
