Dolly Holmes is a painter living in Petersburg, Virginia. Educated at the Cooper Union and Hunter College in New York, Dolly sees her mentors as the early American modernists, such as Marsden Hartley, John Marin and Arthur Dove.
She and her husband, Mark Pehanich, moved to Petersburg in 1997 to renovate an 1828 house, to live more simply and focus more time on their artwork. In 2002 they bought an old pawnshop, which they use for studio space.
Dolly has shown at New York’s Painting Center, Petersburg’s Sol Cooper Gallery and Enteros Design, and Perspective Gallery at Virginia Tech. She is currently affiliated with Walton Gallery in Petersburg and Eric Schindler Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, where she will have a show in February 2016.
