In the Fields: Botanical Lore at Arts Benicia

In The Fields: Botanical Lore

In The Fields: Botanical Lore

The history of art shows us that artists and plants are a natural pairing. Artists have been creating botanical lore for centuries, inspired by the forms, colors, myths, metaphors, science, and symbolism of plants. WIth over 100 works by Bay Area artists, working in a variety of media, this beautiful exhibit is open to the public in the Historic Benicia Arsenal.

Jennifer Perlmutter, Juror, balances the influences of nature and civilization in her work, combining environmental character with urban features in a complex layering to create a push-pull of color, figure and texture. Botanicals were her first subjects, used to explore watercolors and oils in the late 90s. She produced chinoiserie, artwork and deep, layered finishes on high-end furniture, featured in LA’s Pacific Design Center. Perlmutter ultimately found her niche in mixed media on wood and canvas, which is her predominant medium today. She opened a gallery in Lafayette, CA in 2014, exhibiting a diverse program of contemporary art. Perlmutter’s work has been widely commissioned, collected internationally, and shown in New York, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Arts Benicia is a community-based non-profit offering diverse and relevant exhibitions in its gallery and at other exhibition venues in Benicia; engaging public programs; creative workshops for adults; and inspiring youth arts educational programming. Located in the Historic Benicia Arsenal, Arts Benicia has been a vital part of the California Bay Area regional art scene for over 31 years, supporting artistic development and enriching the larger community.
