The work of artist Debbie Bakker is on display at Viewpoints Gallery in Los Altos.

Viewpoints Gallery, returning to exhibiting art, features the work of watercolorist Debbie Bakker in a new show, “Luscious,” running through Aug. 1.

A reception for the artist is scheduled 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 25 at the downtown Los Altos gallery.

Bakker, who specializes in depictions of fruit in vibrant colors, sees her subjects at close range and includes intense detail in her paintings.

“When I stop and look at something, – I mean, really look at it in all its glorious detail – I am filled with wonder and joy,” she said in a statement. “I try to capture that feeling for my audience, those tiny moments of joy, that surround us every day when we just pause and look.”

Bakker’s new paintings showcase materials that allow framing without glass, for a modern look that emphasizes color and detail.

Her art has won awards and international acclaim in numerous juried exhibitions.

She is a member of local, state and national watercolor associations.

Viewpoints Gallery adheres to all county health protocols. Visitors can view “Luscious” from outdoors, and curbside pickup of purchased work is available.

Viewpoints Gallery is located at 315 State St. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.
