JANUARY MEMBER MEETING
Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Our guest artist is Nikki Basch Davis from Benicia. Nikki began her art education in graphic arts, which she studied at the Bezalel Art Institute in Jerusalem. She continued her art education in London where she earned a National Diploma in Design. She discovered her true passion for painting at London’s Royal College of Art.

In the 1970s in California, she studied with Lundy Siegrist, son of Society of Six member, Louis Siegriest, where she gained an interest in plein air painting. Along with Jerold Turner, Pam Glover and William Rushton, Nikki was part of the beginning of “The Outsiders,” a group of ten that paints and has been showing together in art galleries and museums.
