The old adage is true, as the rains of April have brightened the walls of Bonner David Galleries with flowers of all kinds.  Hyper-realist floral painter Jane Jones provides new work rendering the flowers she loves to tend in her own garden.  Dyana Hesson, known for her larger than life desert botanicals, showcases some of her favorite blossoms of the West.  Still life artist Cary Ennis has created classical works that lovers of traditional art will love and crave and Benjamin Shamback who also paints traditional still life’s but on copper, his work always demands a second look.   In addition, guest artist, Victoria Herrera will debut on the walls of Bonner David, with her moody and ethereal flowers. The varying styles of each artist complement each other to create a beautiful array of florals throughout the gallery space. The show opens with a special reception on Thursday May 8, 2014 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. The show will hang in the gallery through June 5, 2014. Celebrating Mother’s Day has never been as much fun as with these lovely flowers of art that will never wilt.

Jane Jones “Garden Party”

Hyper-realist painter Jane Jones never fails to see the beauty in the simplest things in nature.  Also a masterful gardner, Jones works closely with the flowers she paints. In each painting, Jones uses simple yet elegant arrangements of silk tablecloths, glass vases and dramatic lighting, which showcase each flower’s grace and delicacy.

However, Jones chooses flowers as her primary subject for more than just their beauty. Today’s world is fast paced and complex and can quickly become tiresome and overwhelming. The plants and flowers in nature remind Jones to always take a moment to appreciate the beauty which surrounds each of us every day.

The show opens on Thrusday, January 31, 2013 from 6-9pm and will hang in the gallery until February 13th. So take a break from the chaotic, everyday world and come to Bonner David Galleries to enjoy the breathtaking paintings of Jane Jones.

The Beginning of a New Decade

 

Carri Baca, Clark Olson and Christi Manuelito

Stunning art, bubbly champagne,  delicious cake, and lots of friends and family, what more could you ask for? As Bonner David Galleries celebrated their 10th anniversary this past weekend, the we enjoyed all that and more. The walls of the gallery were adorned with over 100 new works from nearly every Bonner David artists. As people mingled over drinks and hors d’oeuvres, everyone was able to sense the accomplishment which had been achieved.

In the world of art, a decade is a milestone many galleries never live to see. yet Bonner David Galleries has grown and flourished over the last ten years, managing to overcome the hardships they have faced; and with the recent addition of Carri Baca, Christi’s twin sister, to the Bonner David family as partner, the next decade looks bright and full of possibilities.

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us this past weekend and to everyone who has helped to make the gallery what it is today. We are excited and have high expectations for where the gallery will go in this next decade!
