The Point Richmond Gallery is gearing up to present its latest artist exhibition, “Fields of Study, The Art of Doug Wittnebel,” with opening receptions slated for Oct. 8-9 from 2-6 p.m. The Gallery is located at 145 W. Richmond Ave. in Point Richmond.
According to the gallery, Wittnebel’s work “analyze(s) and reinterpret(s) visual observations and physical sensations in colorful abstracts and lyrical representational art.” The show’s paintings and digital art are rooted in the artist’s three decade experience as an architect, “boldly exploring his imagination, introspection and expansion of the physical landscape,” per the gallery.
It added that his current work was created in his outdoor studio and features “a profound connection to nature and the deep changes of our climate in Northern California.”
Wittnebel, who holds a Masters Architecture Degree from Tulane University and lives in Walnut Creek, keeps busy as an artist, architect, author and teacher, per his gallery bio. His specialties are “storytelling, editorial and travel drawing, visual development, storyboarding, visual note taking, architectural sketches and more.”
Holiday and closing receptions for the artist’s show will be held Dec. 17-18 from 2-6 p.m. For more info contact the Point Richmond Gallery at [email protected] or 415.286.6298.
