The Artists’ Gallery at the Emerson invites the public to a reception for artists Bonnie Glock and Stuart Bond, to be held on Friday, October 9 from 5 to 8 PM. Their works will be on display from September 28 through October 24. Glock will present a series of abstract graphite and pastel drawings, most of which will be in black, white, and gray tones. Bond will be showing his beautifully carved wood hangings, using trout, birds, wildlife, and celtic designs as his inspiration.
Bonni Glock’s early artistic inclinations were shaped by her mother, a realistic artist out of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Having received a B.S. in Education from Texas Tech University and a B.A. in Art from M.S.U., Bonnie now combines mediums, styles and rhythms into her own individual expression. She has painted and exhibited in eight states.
Stuart Bond started carving at age thirteen when his father enrolled them both in woodcarving classes. His instructor was a master woodcarver from Norway. From then on, with the encouragement of his artistic parents, he learned and practiced on his own, working in wood and stone. Living on the Oregon coast gave him inspiration and plenty of subject matter. Then he experienced the dramatic change of moving to Montana, and a what a good change it has been. Here he’s honed his skills and added clay and wax to his sculpture mediums. Sculpture is a passion for Stuart and there is nothing he would rather be doing.
