Jeanne Nikolai Olivieri hails from Milwaukee but has been a long-time visitor to Door County with her family. In a life filled with divisions and differences, her work celebrates the beauty of things we share. She works in multiple mediums, including acrylics, oils, watercolor, collage, ink and gouache, responding to a continuous desire to explore, but whatever the medium, she uses vivid pigments and revels in the bold use of color. She also gives a new perspective to many common scenes and they can be seen in the works that are part of From a Different Angle, running Aug. 2-26 at Woodwalk Gallery.
Olivieri will be featured along with local photographers Steve and Arlene Stanger, who also literally put things at a different angle sometimes using a vortograph lens or a Holga camera, and Gail Nelson who works to create images in enamels that can be infused with copper or gold.
Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 Cty G in Egg Harbor. The gallery is open 10 am to 5 pm daily. For more information visit woodwalkgallery.com.
