The Old Davie School will feature the works of local artist Bonnie Shapiro in a one woman show beginning on December 18, 2009 with an opening reception with the artist from 7-9 p.m. There will be no admission fee to attend the reception. The show will run through February 26, 2010.
As a child, South Florida’s tropical beauty strongly influenced Bonnie, cultivating itself in her palette and subject matter as an adult. The Everglades and charming Florida towns that she visited in these young impressionable years are often predominate in her paintings. Working primarily in oil, Bonnie portrays the simple beauty of the everyday scenes that we so often take for granted.
Beginning the study of art at an early age and continuing throughout her life as she traveled from Boston to New York, Bonnie eventually returned to her beloved South Florida, where she continues to study with well known artist such as Al Razza and Larry Gerber. In addition to her study of fine art, Bonnie obtained degrees in psychology, anthropology and counseling from the University of Florida.
The Old Davie School is located at 6650 Griffin Road, in Davie. For more information, please contact Patti Koch at 954-797-1044.
