3pm-5pm Reception with the artist.
Join us in partnership with Bay Sotheby’s International Realty in Lafayette to celebrate the art of Nicole Wakeman. Her paintings are on display in this beautiful new office in Lafayette, two blocks down from the gallery. Stop in and meet the artist and the friendly team of agents at their new creekside space.
“Each of us comes to art differently: to create, appreciate or both. Just a simple, sincere bit of encouragement pushed me to my first adult painting class and I have not looked back. My inspirations include many greats as Diebenkorn, Hoffmann and Gaudi.” – Nicole
Nicole creates art to draw the viewer in for a good long stay, to linger and discover the work’s individual elements are as compelling as the whole. Her high-chroma abstractions are designed to connect with the viewer, to elicit an up-close interaction with the materials, and an experience of emotion from a distance. The visual energy and complexity in her work spring from the alchemy of color, texture, movement and depth.
Nicole is an award winning artist, showing throughout the East Bay, including the Bankhead Theater, Wente Estate Tasting Room and Cuda Ridge Winery in Livermore; the Pleasanton Firehouse Arts Center; the Village Gallery Theater in Danville; Lafayette Town Hall Theater, the Alameda Museum; East Bay Open Studios in Jack London Square and ProArts Gallery in Oakland; and am also a contributing artist in the Blackburn & Friends art collective based in San Francisco.
On View through May 2015
Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery will be rotating solo artist showcases in the Bay Sotheby’s office throughout the year. Next artist featured will be Nancy Boynton Hartley.
