Although Barbara Lacy and Gayla Bonnell aren’t used to exhibiting together, the new Beatitudes Visions of Possibilities exhibit in the Town Plaza Bistro features both AAG juried artists interpreting nature in their own style.  The exhibit runs from June 4 to September 3, 2014.

Barbara Lacy says she loves the challenge of creating from a blank canvas. She mixes historical elements into her work: abandoned missions, churches, and Indian ruins with Arizona’s stunning landscapes in the background. She does not  portray nature, landscapes, or animals in a realistic style.  She says, “I know I can’t improve on them.”
Gayla Bonnell says she finds inspiration from nature, like the way dried grass might lay, the formation of crops of rocks, reflections in a stream, animal prints, dried mud and her list goes on. She also enjoys the beauty of flowers in full bloom but also when they die.  She likes to paint both types of beauty. She sums it up, “Observation is the spirit of my art.”
