Meet Local Artist at Penn State Lehigh Valley Reception

10/16/2007 —

Penn State Lehigh Valley will hold a reception and gallery talk by local artist, Harvey D. Bonner, on Tuesday, October 23, beginning at 4 p.m.  His exhibit, entitled Id Figures, can be viewed through October 31 in the Concourse Gallery.  

Bonner is a graduate of The Philadelphia College of Art (P.C.A.), now the University of the Arts.  After post-graduate work at P.C.A., The Choinard Institute of Art in Los Angeles, and considerable time as an advertising designer, he joined the Medallic Design Department of a large private mint. In retirement, Bonner found himself as an easel painter with most of his work in oil on canvas…"because it is most plastic and most forgiving to those of us who are experimenters." His work is impressionistic in style, sometimes romantic in nature. His interest of horses, ships at sea, and figures from life, fiction, history, and fantasy is represented in his canvases.

The gallery is located at Penn State Lehigh Valley, 8380 Mohr Lane, Fogelsville.
