Bonnie Gray Solo Exhibition "I Love To Paint!"

Noted Rockport Artist, Bonnie Gray, presents her spirited artwork in the NSAA Hallway exhibition space for the month of June. Her solo exhibition, "I Love To Paint!" opens June 4 through June 27, 2015. The Opening Reception to be held June 14th, 2-4 p.m. will coincide with the New Members Show and the Opening reception for Exhibition II. The North Shore Arts Association's galleries and receptions are open and free to the public. Hope to see you there!
Enjoying the challenge of painting still life, landscapes, and florals in oil, Gray says "I love to paint! I appreciate the richness of the colors made possible using oil on canvas, and strive to create a sense of realism. A day spent painting is as refreshing as any vacation day might be. My interest in art, and love of painting is without a doubt one of the great blessings in my life, and I strive to convey that feeling in my work."
Having studied at the Massachusetts College of Art while still in high school, Gray was also a student of the late Helen Van Wyk, focusing on still life painting with a concentration in the techniques of the Dutch Masters. In addition to being an artist member of the North Shore Arts Association since 1995, Bonnie has been a member of the Local Color Artists' Cooperative in Gloucester, MA since 2008. Her work can be found in private collections on Cape Ann and around the country.
