During the exhibition at Walter Wickiser Gallery, we will be showing 7 paintings and one giclee of Fanucci’s city paintings of New York, which are characteristic of her unique style and display the charisma of the New York City.
From the Napa Valley California, Fanucci is an internationally well-known artist, who has shown worldwide, including the Carrousel Du Louvre in Paris, Le Musee de Marrakech in Morocco, the Robert Monday Winery, the Christopher Hill Gallery in California, Andrews Art Museum in North Carolina, Chasen Gallery in VirginiaVam Inc. Gallery in NJ, The Walter Wickiser Gallery, in New York, among others.
Fanucci is best known for her UNIQUE painting style - painting cities on top of each other with a layer of color in between. The Walter Wickiser Gallery has published two books on Fanucci that introduce her painting style in depth. The books are titled “Layla Fanucci - City of Dreams Unabridged: 1999-2011” and “Layla Fanucci - Striking a Creative Note: Passion to Process.” Owning her own wine vinery in NAPA - Charter Oak winery, Layla’s paintings are just as unique as her wines, especially the Monte Rosso Wine, which is a very special wine because the vines were planted in 1880, one of the oldest vineyards in CA.
In addition to being a well-known artist, Fanucci has also been recognized as a successful business woman. In Marlo Thomas's book “ It ain’t over till it’s over,” Marlo picked 60 woman to write a chapter each about women who have achieved great success in business with an entrepreneurial vision, and Layla is in her book. She had also been interviewed by the Today Show in April 2014, the CNN in December 2014 and the Food Network in September 2016.
