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.
