DANBURY MAIN STREET'S @287 GALLERY ENTERS ITS 2018 SEASON

WITH "THE FEMALE PERSPECTIVE," A SOLO EXHIBITION BY WOODBURY ARTIST KAREN BONANNO,

OPENING WITH FREE PUBLIC RECEPTION ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 19TH, 2018

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.” -Georgia O’Keefe, artist

Through figurative gesture,  expressive mark making and color choice, Woodbury CT artist Karen Bonanno captures a mood suggestive of Cezanne, Bonnard or Matisse. Her new solo exhibition, "The Female Perspective," opens on Friday, January 19th, 2018, at @287 Gallery, 287 Main Street, Danbury CT, with a free public reception from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. An RSVP is strongly suggested. For reservations, go to http://bit.ly/female_perspective or call (203) 798 0760  "The Female Perspective" runs through Friday, April 20th. The exhibition marks the beginning of @287 Gallery's 2018 season, as it enters its sixth year of presenting fine art by Western Connecticut artists and others that capture the gallery's sense of vision and looking forward.  

Karen Bonanno received her B.A. in Fine Art/Painting from Western Connecticut State University in1993, and since then, she has shown extensively throughout the region. In 2016, her work was featured in Prince Street Gallery's 8th National Juried Show in New York, juried by Guggenheim Fellow, Graham Nickson. Influenced by the Bay Area Figurative movement, including artists David Park, Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff, Karen's figures are formed with intent, often appearing in an ambiguous atmospheric space and creating an emboldened narrative that is both solid and proud.
