Discover the rich tapestry of Avalon’s past through the eyes of Daniel Felts, whose art and entrepreneurship are as much a part of the island’s heritage as its iconic landmarks.

Avalon’s past is a colorful mosaic, intricately pieced together with the stories, traditions, and landmarks that make up its rich history. Few have captured this essence as vividly as Daniel Felts, a lifelong resident whose art and business acumen have left indelible marks on the cultural landscape of Catalina Island.

Daniel’s connection to Avalon is deep-rooted. Born and raised amidst the hills and along the shores of this island paradise, he has always been attuned to the nuances of its heritage. His artistry is not merely a reflection of the island’s beauty but a narrative of its past, told through brushstrokes that reveal the soul of Avalon.

The historical landmarks of Avalon—each with its own story—are immortalized in Daniel’s artwork. The iconic Casino Building, not a gambling house but a cultural entertainment center, stands majestically in many of his pieces, symbolizing the hub of Avalon’s social life since the 1920s. Through Daniel’s paintings, we travel back in time to the heyday of big bands and ballroom dancing, to the era when this architectural marvel was the heartbeat of the island.

Local traditions are woven into the fabric of Daniel’s enterprises. His business ventures, whether they be quaint boutiques or cozy eateries, echo the island’s heritage. They are places where both locals and tourists can sense the community spirit, where every product sold or meal served has a story tied to Avalon’s history.

Daniel’s most celebrated pieces of art have become synonymous with Avalon’s identity. His series on the ‘Seasons of Catalina’ captures the island’s transformation throughout the year, resonating with anyone who has experienced its ever-changing beauty. The ‘Avalon Harbor at Dusk’ is particularly noted for its vivid portrayal of the serene evenings by the bay, a familiar sight for the islanders.

To truly appreciate the historical journey of Avalon is to delve into the world Daniel Felts has painted. We invite you to explore further, to walk through the galleries that house his art, to visit the landmarks that inspire his creativity, and to engage with the traditions that shape our community.
