Bonner David Galleries is proud to represent internationally known sculptor, Brad Howe. Currently living in California, Brad Howe began his career in Brazil after studying history at the University of Sao Paulo.

Having solo exhibitions in Germany, South Korea, France, Italy and Switzerland in addition to over two decades of solo showcases in this country, Howe is in numerous corporate, city, and museum collections.
One need only take a look at his carefully crafted surfaces, the plethora of colors he chooses for his work to understand the many influences which inspire his graceful work.

Their aim is to capture the vigor of life and radiate with unabashed potentiality.” We invite you to come take a look at his works in our gallery. He also works on larger commissions for specific installations.

Mayo Blvd. in Phoenix. Mayo Clinic is internationally known as a front-runner in healthcare and their selection of Dyana to showcase her work by their outpatient waiting area is another indication of their leadership.

Ending the Year in Style!

Starting off the busy evening with an intimate crowd

Thank you to everyone who came out Thursday night for the Michael Carson and Small Works Shows. The night was a huge success with red dots decorating the walls. Carson and his wife will now be calling Phoenix home, so the evening proved to be a great opportunity for the pair to experience true Phoenician hospitality. Four Peaks Brewery was kind enough to sponsor the event by providing their award winning beer which kept the night festive. Adding to the elegance of the evening were Harpist VeeRonna Ragonne and flutist Sherry Finzer (Dulce VAS) who performed holiday classics.
