Gallery on Main's "Artist of the Month" series continues with an exhibition of photography by Hopewell Valley, New Jersey-based artist Vikki Sarah Margulies, on view August 1 through September 28. Admission is free, and the artist’s works are available for purchase.
Join us for a free opening reception on Saturday, August 4, from 6:00–8:00 pm.
Vikki's passion for photography evolved organically as the perfect synthesis of her love for nature and the spiritual connection she feels while outdoors. During long walks with her sheltie Charlemain, she began capturing with a camera and her artist’s eye the beauty she saw all around her. She wanted to bring this beauty to others whom she felt might otherwise overlook what she saw or who simply did not experience nature as she did.
Says Vikki, “My latest images remind me of the work of Maxfield Parrish, as he, like me, has created altered realities with splendid use of color.”
Vikki was "discovered" by fellow artist and friend NJ DeVico. NJ exclaimed, "Your work must be seen!" as she persuaded Vikki to exhibit her work. Taking the heed of her contemporary, she has exhibited her work since October 2015 at venues including the Earislie Museum in Trenton, Hopewell Valley Vineyards, and the Blawenburg Cafe, to name a few.
Vikki dedicates this exhibition at Gallery on Main to her dear friend NJ, who passed away on July 11, 2018.
