Benicia’s Gallery 621 upcoming art exhibit “Connecting,” features the work of artist Nikki Basch-Davis, February 2-March 5, 2017. For many years, Basch-Davis has delighted her large fan base enamored of her expert compositions and skilled use with the brush, whether it’s a plein air painting or figurative work in her studio. With many gallery showings throughout her career, Basch-Davis has captured the viewers’ attention, inviting them to take a closer look—to interact and engage with her paintings. In the artist’s words, the show “refers to connecting through love and friendship. In a world of turmoil and shuttered emotions, confusion and uncertainty it is important to remember that we are all connected by our common humanity. The work exhibited in this show is trying to bring an array of moments where this is expressed.”
Gallery 621 is an artist member gallery at 309 First Street in downtown Benicia at the water’s edge. Nestled amongst shops, living history, restaurants, and other galleries, Gallery 621 is a contemporary gallery that exhibits the works of its members.
Basch-Davis studied at the Bezalel Art Institute in Jerusalem, and in London, earned a National Diploma in Design. At the London Royal College of Art, she discovered her passion for painting. In addition to her dedication to art and the creative process, Basch-Davis also teaches painting workshops around the Bay Area. An artist reception is planned for February 11, 5-7pm.
