Thornton Oaks Retirement Community presents “Painting Waves”, an art exhibit featuring the work of Nikki Pilgrim.
Nikki Pilgrim is a non-traditional watercolor painter, and illustrator. Her work is characterized by opulent color, pattern, and whimsy. Pilgrim describes herself as “… a maker. I am always compelled to be producing.” Heavily influenced by her coastal surroundings, artist Nikki Pilgrim immerses herself in the ‘ritual of painting’ using ornate color and pattern as she transfers her environment into her creative work.
Nikki’s dream-like paintings depict her surroundings; her art work is based and inspired by Maine. In addition to the natural environment, the artist says her work is influenced by antiquity, funk, pattern and color. “I relish my time spent at flea markets and in nature, both of which Maine is rich with. My found treasures, anything from driftwood off the beach or a find from the flea market, will often be incorporated into a painting.”
A NH native, she received a bachelor’s in fine arts from the Maine College of Art in 2007, with a focus in printmaking and has since been living, making, and showing her art on the coast of Maine. Her studio is located in Bath.
The public is invited to attend this free event. The exhibit remains open to the public during select times throughout April and May. Please call our business office at 373-4600 to find out times the exhibit is available for viewing.
