BERT SULT

Architect, Bert Sult started painting cityscape watercolors a few years ago and in a short period his works have garnered a wide following.

Known predominantly for European, New York and iconic steet & landmark scenes, his loose, lively, masterful use of watercolor and expressive method of wet in wet lost edges juxtaposed with lines and figures imbue a distinctly sophisticated, nostalgic yet ethereal tone.

Combining controlled washes with soft edges against areas of line and detail creating intentional light, shadow and shape patterns livened up with people moving the viewer around the scene is a lifetime goal many watercolorists pursue and Sult's work rises to this challenge consistently.

Bert Sult has been in numerous group & solo exhibits throughout NC.

CECILIA GUITARTE

Oil paintings by Cecilia Guitarte have a clean graphic style with a keen eye for lighting nuances and a focus on everyday subjects elevated to high art. From sliced fruit and vegetables to mist-shrouded trees, serene skies and whimsical still lifes, Cecilia’s distinct detailed imagery stands apart “My paintings are based on photos taken around my home and on my travels. I see lines and shapes, darks and lights and try to accent what has caught my attention. I have a very logical mind, so I like to simplify the objects and the colors that I use; I liked clean lines and a smooth surface” It's no wonder Cecilia gets juried into numerous prestigious shows, including being juried into the National Oil & Acrylic Painterz Society in 2015 and 2016. In the Raleigh Fine Arts show judged by NC Museum Director Larry Wheeler and the N.E.W Show juried exhibit at VAE. She won 1st place in the 2012 Small Treasures exhibit at the Cary Gallery and in 2011 won Honorable Mentions in the Fine Arts League of Cary annual exhibit and the NC State Fair Juried Exhibit.

KELLY FROST

Light and atmosphere emerging through harmonious colors and brushstrokes cast an alluring soft glow over many of Kelly's paintings. You feel as though you have stood there-- Kelly loves focusing on the "lone" structure weaving a subtle narrative. Many of her paintings are inspired on by her travels abroad or the farm fields down the road. As the Gallery Director and Workshop Coordinator at Nicole's Gallery, Kelly runs all of the gallery's art workshops and is fortunate to have studied with some of the best instructores in the US; John Poon, Rick McClure, Lori Putnam, Don Hatfield, Dominic Vignola and many local instructors. She is in the permanent corporate collections of Duke Raleigh, Capital Bank and Shanahan Law Group.
