Two Art Exhibits, one artist, at Newtown Municipal Art Gallery Through June 16
A reception for the art at the Newtown Municipal Art Gallery, has been set for Sunday, May 7 at the Gallery from 2-4 pm. Artist Bonnie Burke, who teaches at the John Read Middle school in Redding, will be there to answer questions about her art and the path she followed in creating two exhibits.
The Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 8:30- 5:30 and later when there are meetings.
Set in two parts, the exhibit in the first gallery, facing Simpson Street, will feature “My Fragment and Building Blocks,” abstract works inspired by a painting trip to Mexico. “This has become a metaphor for the world around me and a way to question, are we all seeing fragments of things broken or are we all seeing fragments of things broken or are they building blocks to the future,” she noted.
The second part of the exhibit, further down the gallery, “Here, There & Everywhere,” is more representational and is a collection of work that was painted from 2018-2022 and inspired by her travels and pictures of her friends’ travels.
“I hope you are able to enjoy the journey you are taken on in this show,” Bonnie said.
