No worries.. I was able to get it going by just sending the file  
contents, i.e.:

#on server, open image
image = open("images/test.png")
data = image.read()
#send data to client

#client side
stream = cStringIO.StringIO(data)
bitmap = BitmapFromImage(ImageFromStream(stream))
wx.StaticBitmap(panel, wx.ID_ANY, bitmap)
