Artist Talk at the Richmond Art Center Saturday, October 26th by Nicole Mueller

This Saturday, October 26th, 2019 I’ll be giving an artist talk at the Richmond Art Center from 2–3pm, for my exhibition “Thresholds.” I’ll be discussing my paintings, process, and site-specific installation. The talk will take place as part of the Richmond Art Center’s annual Fall Family Day, where I’ll also be leading a collage-based activity between 12:30pm–3pm, in connection to my window installation, involving the creation of small DIY “stained glass” collages. Bring the whole family, and join me this weekend! “Thresholds” will remain on view through November 22nd. Find more information here.


"Thresholds" Opens September 7th at the Richmond Art Center by Nicole Mueller


I am excited to announce a new solo exhibition opening at the Richmond Art Center in September 2019, of a new body of work titled “Thresholds.” I’m grateful and honored to be showing my work at the Richmond Art Center, the East Bay’s largest visual art center, and which has been an important fixture in the Bay Area’s art scene for years, having exhibited work by artists like Joan Brown and Richard Diebenkorn early in their careers. “Thresholds” will open September 7th, 2019 and remain open until November 22nd, 2019. Here are more details on the show’s opening reception and special events:

West Gallery, Richmond Art Center

Special Event: Saturday, October 26th, 12:30–3pm

Through this exhibition called ‘Thresholds,’ that includes a new body of paintings and site-specific installation, Nicole Mueller will transform the gallery into a shifting environment that addresses the transitional and intangible nature of spaces. Using cut layers of colored films, collage, and paint, Thresholds will activate the natural light and windows of the Richmond Art Center’s West Gallery, combining the effects of stained glass with contemporary abstract painting.

The Richmond Art Center is located at 2540 Barrett Avenue, Richmond, CA 94804 and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10am – 5pm.
