Bonnie Lambert Art Reception
December 18, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Expressionist oil painter Bonnie Lambert studied art for two years in night classes at The Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California, before she met her mentor—museum-collected artist Margaret Garcia—in 2009.
Since Lambert’s first solo show in 2011, she has participated in more than 85 shows and exhibitions, including solo exhibits at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum (2017, Mesa, AZ), The City of Burbank Creative Arts Center Gallery (2016), ChimMaya Art Gallery (2016, Los Angeles), the Jean Deleage Art Gallery (2014, Los Angeles), and The Art Depot & the Fontana City Hall (2022, Fontana). Group exhibitions include The Santa Paula Art Museum, The Lines Gallery (Bergamot Station, Santa Monica), the TAG Gallery (LA Open Exhibition), 1315 Studios (Chelsea, NYC), Sacramento Fine Arts Center, and many more.
Lambert was a professional actress for nearly two decades. Her theatrical background lends natural drama and mystery to her work, as well as joy and celebration.
I’m a cityscape oil painter passionate about bright colors and deep contrast. My inspirations are the fluid light, dramatic vistas, quiet neighborhoods and stark landscapes of California and the Southwest. I paint with a vibrant palette and expressive brushstrokes to share my vision of an essence of the urban experience. I hope that the viewer will be inspired to see the world around them in a new, beautiful light.
