TOUR OF THE BREARLEY WICKFORD GALLERY
The Brearley Wickford Fine Art Gallery was located in an historic building (circa 1830) across the street from the St. John the Evangelist Church in Historic Lambertville. Candice’s artwork was on display until September, 2011, when the gallery closed due to hurricane damage.
The gallery won the "Best of Lambertville" award for 2012 for Art Galleries & Dealers.

Gallery Entrance at 51 Bridge Street:
Here is room 1 west view from entrance:
As you entered the first gallery room, Candice's magnificent Easter lilies reigned over the first of three fireplaces with delightful Daffodils on their flanks. The red Race Car 22 always attracted attention, as it zooms towards the viewer at breakneck speed. Her gray abstract The Looking Glass often elicited thoughtful comments, while the bright Sunflowers peeked out from below the Cheetah. As you would circumnavigate the room, you were treated to many smaller works, including a charming little Romance Rose (since sold), a small nude (named Elizabeth) and a Turks Cap Lily.
Room 1 east view from entrance: Passers-by on Bridge Street were treated to a majestic Male Nude oil painting offering a glimpse of Candice’s extraordinary talent depicting the human body. One of Candice's works, the female nude Rachael, hides demurely among the flowers: Red Dahlia, Magenta Rose, White Petunia, Dandelions and a Red Amaryllis. Cats are here, too, including a pastel rendering of Siamese Rama from the rear.
ROOM 2 East view: Flowers in this area include an unbelievably seductive Red Rose, and Peach Gerbera Daisies at which everyone stares. The award-wining Mother and Child requires a few moments of thoughtful study (it's the eyes of the the mother that hold your attention, click on the underlined title to see it more closely). You can see room 3 in the distance.
The west wall of the second room (below) includes many more animals, flowers, nudes and abstracts, in acrylics, oils and water color. The Giraffes are a perennial favorite. Some will stare for long moments, admiring the careful manner in which Candice has painted each animals’ shape (and shadow). All six giraffes are completely identifiable (along with the whimsical African Secretary Bird). Flowers here include a Yellow Rose, a Stargazer Lily, PinkDogwoods, a Red and Pink Roses, and a Pink Tree Peony. The impressive Tiger and Sneakers are two of Candice's earlier works.
The main wall of room 2 is chock full of 8” x 10” abstracts, a favorite of the designers for their color schemas, which run the gamut from lightest of tints to darkest of shades.
Many of these have been sold and they are only for sale as originals (there are not any Giclées).
The stylish flair of Can Can at the lower right of the image is a favorite.

In east corner of room 2, just above the artist's head is an abstract entitled Collision, one of many colorful abstracts. Adjacent is Dragonfly, a consistent favorite. as well. In the background is a large red-orange Poppy.
That's a faux fire painted by Candice (not for sale)!
(viewers regularly comment about the fine quality of the Giclées).
her faux fire! On request, Candice will personalize your Giclée...for example, one buyer requested a tiger to be prowling the forest beneath the monkey. Such added features make the Giclées truly one of a kind.

Flora and fauna have been a constant inspiration for Candice. Here she enjoys the gallery garden, surrounded by scenes of nature. Orange Rose is a 30" x 30" Giclée that will enliven any room in your house. There, again, is Monkey, hanging in the forest (a 26 x 38 Giclée) and you can see Requiem, a 911 commemorative in the lower right hand corner.
