The City of Boynton Beach Art in Public Places presents The Pollination Exhibit: The Paintings of Nicole Galluccio. The first exhibition in the newly renovated Boynton Beach Arts & Cultural Center.
Through the pollinators exhibit, Galluccio strives to create awareness of the dramatic decline of our bees and butterfly populations so essential to agriculture and to the beauty in our Florida landscapes. About one-third of the human diet comes from insect-pollinated plants especially by the honey bee.
She often uses the mandala form in her work, a symbol used to convey that life is never ending and everything is connected.
In nature, everything is connected.
The permanent healthy close association between flowering plants and pollinators is essential for both to thrive in order for us to thrive.
From her studio in Lake Worth, Florida, Nicole Galluccio creates painting and images that brings herself and her audience into a happier emotional state. She utilizes color theory, nostalgia and whimsy to spark these positive thoughts and feelings. Her recent paintings mix the vibrant colors that attract bees, butterflies and other tiny pollinators to the blooms of our gardens. She was raised in New Jersey and earned her BFA from Florida Atlantic University in 1998.
