Gail Morris’ new exhibit, “Elements of Earth”

“Elements of Earth” | New works
Bonner David Galleries | Scottsdale

Oil painting by aritst Gail Morris, titled "Reflections", on display at Bonner David Galleries, Scottsdale, Arizona, April 16-May18, 2020

Just in time for this spring season of renewal and hope, we’ve received eight stunning new paintings from Gail Morris for her “Elements of Earth” show scheduled for next week.  While circumstances do not permit our original artist reception, we’ve beautifully hung the pieces in our gallery space and they make such a statement. Until we can unveil the actual show, we want you to have a chance to view and collect these works, so we’ve created a virtual exhibit in a flipbook format. You can view Gail Morris’ virtual exhibit flipbook here.

We are still periodically at the gallery, so you can feel free to contact us there by email. We can arrange for a private social distance tour and take care of all the necessary details to ensure safe delivery to your home.  Gail has been working tirelessly for this show and we’re proud to bring it to you, even if in a little different format. Our hope is that you and your loved ones remain safe during these uncertain times and that we’ll soon welcome you back to our lovely gallery spaces, both in Scottsdale and New York.

Here is a quick peek of this stunning exhibit from Gail Morris on display at Bonner David Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona:

Due to the ever-changing conditions in our state and world, this has necessitated us to postpone our incredible Dyana Hesson exhibit. Obviously, this disappoints us all as Dyana has put such work into this show! We will, however, still hang the show and below are a number of ways to see it: 
1 Window shop, we will leave the lights on, feel free to peer in.
2 Contact us for a private tour should you want a closer look.
3 Look online and in your inbox for more photographs & video.

In the meantime, we are here to assist you. We will announce a new date soon, obviously, details for this are pending instruction we receive about the safety conditions to gathering again.

In late spring, some friends and I went to a cabin in the woods in Prescott. We cooked, antique shopped, and of course, hiked. There are some wonderful trails in Prescott, along creeks, among the pinons and under the pine trees. It was on one of those hikes that we spied this beautiful mound of Echinocereus triglochidiatus glowing on a bank, nestled among the pine needles and boulders. It demanded a closer look.

While I was on this trip, I got the call that my dad was not doing so well. There was nothing I could do, and I was so far away. My friends listened to me, cried with me, prayed with me. And that’s what good friends do. They are like shining lights at the end of a dark tunnel. The beauty these cactus blooms will always remind me of their love and care.

View “Painterly Memories” Exhibit Catalog 2020

There is something inherently romantic about Romona Youngquist’s paintings. Her pastoral scenes, often picturing a lonely farmhouse in the midst of a breathtaking landscape, are reminders of the Arcadian delights celebrated by Virgil in Ancient Rome. They also show, in a very subtle way, our place within creation, and are a humbling reminder that humanity can live in harmony with nature.
Each of Romona Younquist’s paintings is a symphony, an ode to nature and its beauty. Through strong design, rigorous composition, and the effective use of contrast, Youngquist creates or re-creates peaceful and uplifting scenes. Her paintings invite the viewer into a place they want to stay or return over and over. Each offers universal serenity and a feeling of homecoming.
Youngquist’s paintings nurture the soul. Nature, as a comforting source of physical and spiritual sustenance, is depicted with modulated tonalities and balanced proportions. Youngquist uses a limited palette and mixes every hue with extreme care while allowing splashes of vibrant colors to instill energy and guide the eye. Very few living painters have been able to achieve such aesthetic balance. This is why Romona Youngquist is so admired, so talked about, and so collected, both nationally and internationally.

Romona’s show will be on display until March 23rd, 2020.

Joseph Lorusso, "See Through", painting image

View online show catalog

Joseph Lorusso is the Master of Moods. Lorusso’s impressive figurative paintings extend beyond the classical works of the Italian Masters he was exposed to in his childhood to forge a strikingly modern narrative. He explores the emotional fabric of our lives (happiness, sadness, desire) and captures the intimate moments when we feel unobserved.

Lorusso’s signature palette, and his ability to capture people’s innermost feelings, compels the viewer to make an emotional connection with his ethereal oil paintings.  These paintings have been described as “warm, dreamlike places of restful escape that share a timelessness of work from a bygone era.” Lorusso’s subjects are indeed mysterious and nostalgic, surrounded by intimate beauty that is found in daily life. Lorusso captures the moods which cover the whole spectrum of human emotions.
Experience the luscious texture, the evocative colors. Immerse yourself in the many Moods of this Modern Master.

Claudia Hartley’s

paintings are incredibly “happy.” They are also undoubtedly colorful. Her landscapes are an unrestrained celebration of life and nature. Originally from the South, Claudia Hartley now lives in Arizona and paints the desert. Her work has the structure of traditional, idealized landscapes, but with an entirely contemporary aesthetic (staccato brushworks and non naturalistic, expressive colors).

Hartley considers herself a fauvist, synthesizing the techniques of pointillism and post-impressionism. She mostly applies her masterful skills to depict landscapes of the Southwest. Her paintings are an hyphen between impressionism and abstraction in which color is completely set free. In tune with nature, Claudia Hartley uses intense color as a vehicle for representing mood, light, and space. She has mastered the emotional potency of color, and her paintings convey both passion and happiness.

Claudia Hartley is featured in the February issue of the American Art Collector and Phoenix Home & Garden magazine.

The new paintings created by Michael Carson have a timeless quality. His imagery transplants viewers to a world of intimate moments and reveals the emotional contact onlookers get from gazing at the human figure. The sublime beauty of Carson’s subjects is reminiscent of the “Truth, Goodness, and Beauty” advocated by Aristotle, which transcends the limitations of place and time. While timeless, the imagery in Carson’s paintings retains, however, a distinct, contemporary flair. Michael Carson’s show at Bonner David Galleries, opens during the holiday season, on December 13 and will be on display until January 13. His spectacular new work is guaranteed to make an impact on any viewer.
