Richie Wilkinson and John Bologni The show runs from March 2 to March 29.
Artists reception is March 7th from 3 to 5pm
Richie Wilkinson has explored many mediums throughout her distinguished artistic career. Her career centered around the decorative arts, having owned and operated antique and vintage home-decor shops in San Francisco and Cedar Mountain, NC. Since retirement she has developed a playful interpretation of her formal portrait training, which is on full display in this collection.
John Bologni also made a career in the decorative arts, through which John and Richie met. He gained a reputation amongst antique collectors and museum curators for his notable talents in furniture restoration. Since retirement he has focused his talents on carving “puppets,” adorning their bodies with collages, and pairing them with their individually styled antique style chairs.
John and Richie live in Walnut Creek, CA and have been married over 33 years. They have one son, a creative musician and radio show host living in Sacramento, CA.
In this show you will see John’s carved puppets and chairs together with Richie’s whimsical “all about Me” portraits. Many personalities are on display, and many stories are told!
