"New Abstract Landscapes," our July Featured Show with paintings by Nikki Dilbeck, opens on Wednesday, July 2, and closes on Saturday, July 26. You are invited to attend our Artist's Reception on Saturday, July 12, 6 to 9 p.m., and help us celebrate Nikki and her latest work.
Dilbeck is a "snowbird" spending half of the year in Arizona and half here in Oregon. Despite denying that her landscapes "are of no specific place and that often 'landscape' refers primarily to the compositional design of a painting," her color palette often suggests the opposite.
"Mesa," shown below, is a 24x18 acrylic on panel. It is rich in color and texture - signature elements in all of Nikki's work. She enjoys the challenge of experimenting with materials and following her intuition to make each scene uniquely her own.
Be sure to visit the gallery during July to see Nikki's paintings in person!
