“Pretty in Pink”, Oil on Canvas, 48″x48″ 

Join us for the opening reception for “New Path: New Art by Debra Bucci,” Friday, November 22nd, 6-9 pm during Fourth Friday Gallery Night.  Meet the artist, Debra Bucci, and experience phenomenal oil paintings so vivid you feel as if you are inside the paintings.

Debra Bucci is known for her vibrant and engaging floral paintings. Dynamic color palettes, moving compositions and translucency from layering oils all work together to enhance the depth and bring Debra’s art to life. Her inspiration comes from the high’s and low’s of the  human experience and believes this tension makes the art connectable. Her style is rooted in realism and woven with abstract elements.

Debra is a published illustrator and has achieved success as a licensed fine artist.  She has public and private collectors throughout the US including Savorez Restaurant and Wilmington Magazine. She is an anchor artist at Art in Bloom Gallery and is showing work at The Cameron Art Museum.

Debbie has a BFA in Design from Drexel University where she studied oil painting and enjoyed a corporate career in Package Design. She lives in Wilmington, NC with her husband “Art” and dog “T-Bone”.

The exhibit will be located at 210 Princess Street and will be on view until January 19, 2020.
