July 2020 Featured Artist – Michael Carson
“Contemplative Moments”

Image of oil painting "Blue Flowers" by artist Michael Carson, on display at Bonner David Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York

Michael Carson has been called the “post-millennial Toulouse-Lautrec.” Like the turn of the century French master, Carson is a self-described people watcher. He paints figures with a soft, sophisticated touch. His works summon a pensive, ethereal feeling in the viewer. His subjects seem absorbed in a world of contemplation and inward thinking.

Working loosely and spontaneously, Michael Carson makes every brushstroke count. His use of color and light contributes to the overall meditative mood of his paintings, although he allows the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. These captured moments and this focus on atmosphere make Carson’s art both personal and universal and appeals to an increasing number of collectors in the United States and abroad.

June Featured Artist John Schieffer

June featured artist John Schieffer at Bonner David Galleries

What an incredible talent!  As the spotlight artist in the May 2020 Phoenix Home and Garden, John Schieffer has gained much notoriety, not only in Phoenix, but throughout the nation. His studio technique, his attention to detail, and his use of light all make each painting a first-class work of art. Add to that his subject matter of children’s toys, game tiles, even adult martini glasses and you truly have an artist who paints for all generations.
Best of all, John lives in the Phoenix area, and as our featured artist for June, will be available to meet those who appreciate his talent for a one-on-one private tour of his new exhibition, now hanging on the walls of Bonner David’s Scottsdale location. As we safely re-emerge from our shelter, this is the perfect time to return to Main Street with a purpose—to personally witness the work of a true cultural icon.  We invite you to find a convenient time and click the link below to set up a memorable experience with a dynamic artist. Scottdale’s art culture is thriving, and what better way is there to spend some time on a summer day than with a local treasure viewing some stunning art?

“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.

“Storytellers”

IMG_6945_edited webFor Scottsdale’s Native Artwalk, Bonner David Galleries has a spectacular show featuring two native artists, Painter Nocona Burgess and the our newest sculptor artist,  Holly Wilson. Together their works express two different ways of carrying on traditional and their works are both inspired and informed by stories of their histories, culture and beliefs.

Nocona Burgess, who is Comanche, uses accents of highly saturated colors in unexpected way to create the portraits of the real-life people from his heritage, those from the history of art and the animals he that filled the stories he heard as a child. His unique style blends the an often monochromatic figure, which vaguely resembles the black and white photo he may have used as inspiration with bold, unmistakable pops of vivid color, leaving his own mark on the pasts that inspire him.

image001Holly Wilson, Cherokee/Delaware, creates incredibly intricate, bronze and wood sculptures inspired by a mixture of observed human emotion and the legends of her background. Using the traditional lost wax method, Wilson creates each of her sculptures as one of a kind pieces, singular in edition, as she believes that each work of art has a unique spirit that can not be duplicated.

The show will open February 27, 2014 and remain on display until March 17, 2014. On Thursday, February 27, from 6-9 pm there will be a special artists reception to open the exhibit. This stunning show is one you do not want to miss, so come and join us for a night of exquisite art.

“Western Wonders”

Botanical painter Dyana Hesson and Landscape artist Claudia Hartley are coming together, once again at Bonner David Galleries to present their latest show, “Western Wonders.” Though their styles are drastically different, Hesson’s larger-than-life blooms contrast beautifully with the colorful, impressionistic landscapes of Hartley, both with work that captures the essence the wonders of the southwest.

SpringIntoAction24x36Dyana Hesson never fails to see the beauty in desert flora, often visiting the Desert Botanical Gardens to capture fleeting cacti blossoms and a wide array of succulents that will inspire future paintings. She then enlarges the scale of each flower to fill the entirety of her canvases, isolating its individual beauty and uniqueness. Additionally, Hesson will debut a new series of her much loved conversation roses.

WhiteSnow&AspenYellowClaudia Hartley has a keen eye for deciphering the colors of a landscape, which translates seamlessly to her vivid paintings. Though she now lives in most of the year in South Carolina to be closer to family, she spends several weeks of the year in Arizona, finding inspiration for new paintings and re-invigoration from the desert, which she loves dearly.

This gorgeous show opens on February 6, 2014, with a special artists reception that night from 6-9 pm. The show will hang in the gallery through February 17th and then move to Bonner David North, located in the Baker Showroom, for an encore show, “Encore to Western Wonders.”
