Artist Niki Woehler has opened her first gallery and working art studio in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale at 7056 E. Main Street.
Her gallery will serve as a place for her to create while displaying her two types of works: organic, textural canvases and high gloss resins that often resemble stone scattered with minerals, according to a press release.
Ms. Woehler Woehler straddles the corporate and private art worlds, the release said, describing her large-scale pieces as great visuals, popular among collectors, corporations and interior designers.
In addition to her high-gloss resins and textural canvases, Ms. Woehler is also working on a collection of limited-edition prints and a line of silk, Italian scarves that will soon be available to the public.
She will also offer painting workshops in her space with dates to be announced on her website, noted the release.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to open a gallery and fill an entire a space with my work,” said Ms. Woehler in a prepared statement.
“I hope everyone who views my work can see the love and passion I put into each piece and becomes inspired to follow their own dreams.”
Described as modern and abstract, Ms. Woehler’s art is filled with lines, layers and textures, invading smooth facades, imbuing surface beauty with depth, character, strength and wisdom, detailed the release.
Her approach to create masterpieces makes her one of the “most collectable emerging artists in the west,” stated the release, adding that she is working to have a harness installed in the studio, which will allow her to “hover over her massive canvases, giving her full and easy access to every corner of the medium.”
“One of the most exciting parts of the space is that I’m going to have the freedom to fully commit myself to these large canvases with the use of my harness,”Ms. Woehler said.
“I’ve been working with engineers and technicians to perfect this new method of creating art and can’t wait to fly through the air while creating. My process is all about being innovative and fun and I can’t wait to share that with the public.”
She was the presenting artist for the opening of Iconic Haus, a luxury designer showhouse in Paradise Valley featuring beautiful rooms and outdoor spaces created by 19 top marquis design firms.
Also represented by several galleries countrywide, she was one of a few artists invited to show as a “Resident Artist” at the Found:Re Hotel, an upscale boutique hotel dedicated to the visual arts downtown Phoenix.
One of her works, “Silent Partners,” won first place at the Arizona State Fair Fine Art competition and was selected from more than 1,100 submissions to be part of a group show entitled, “Face Off” at the Herberger Theater Gallery.
The same piece is being turned into a one-of-a-kind rug by David Adler, the release noted of the artist who has been featured during the Telluride Art Walk October three times in the last four year and successfully showed her art at Art Expo New York, selling her entire collection of resin works upon opening.
Much of Ms. Woehler’s work can be found in private homes and corporate collections all over the U.S. and Canada, according to the release.
She recently completed a 54-foot commissioned installation for the CBRE offices in Phoenix, as well as a custom installation for the Indeed Scottsdale corporate offices.
Her work with interior designers has also allowed her resin works to be integrated into numerous multimillion dollar homes from Los Angeles to Manhattan Beach, the release said.
