Holiday Treasures

It’s the holiday season again and Downtown Scottsdale Artwalk is getting in the holiday spirit, too with a special “Holiday Treasures Artwalk.” To celebrate in our own way, Bonner David galleries will have an opening for our small works show. The show will include small works by many of our gallery artists, perfect little treasures to take home or surprise that special someone for the holidays.

Among the new pieces, there will be a collection of precious little Liz Tran mixed media works, of georgeous little dresses; each piece with a personality of its own.

Landscape artist, Claudia Hartley, will also being hanging new works for the occasion. Stunning scenes of her travels to Jerome and Sedona, these pieces brim with vibrant color and exciting scenes of nature’s wonders.

Jane Jones, known for her striking floral still lifes, will showcase two new works on Dec. 6th. Painted with keen precision, her “Summer Sweets” I and II, are beautiful gems, of glittering glass, delictiable desserts and her classic elegant flowers.

Also, at our Holiday Treasures Show, Dyana Hessen will deature her “12 ‘Dy’s’ of Christmas, a series of 12 miniature paintings of beautiful rose close-ups. The inspiriation for the series came from the history of Christmas itself.

 

The 12 “Dy’s” of Christmas: 12   5×5 oil on panel paintings of roses, celebrating the tradition of giving.

 The 12 Days of Christmas were declared a religious holiday throughout Europe in 562.  The holiday was celebrated from Christmas Day, December 25th until Epiphany on January 6th. (Epiphany was the day that the three kings were thought to have visited the Christ Child with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.)  The 12 days were a time of feasting, giving gifts and celebration.  The “Lord of mischief” was a local man hired by the village to organize parties and manage a group of village men to sing and give small gifts at night.  Later, the industrial revolution squelched the luxury of celebrating for 12 days, and so Christmas evolved into a one day holiday.

These little paintings are meant to bring the joy of the Christmas season to you.

Take one home, or give one as a gift. When you marvel at the miraculous ways the folds and curves of the petals conceal its seeds, think about the first Christmas night and how the folds of swaddling clothes concealed the savior of the world.

 Peace, Joy, and Love to you this and every Christmas,

Dyana

With all these, plus works from Gail Morris, Nate Ronniger, Melissa Peck, Michael Carson, Eric boos, Carol Redmond and Eric Bowman, it is bound to be an exciting show to start off our holiday season. So come out to the gallery on Thrusday, December 6th from 6-9pm to see all these beatiful treasures for yourself and maybe even make one yours.
