“It all began in kindergarten, Redlands, CA, when I overheard my teacher tell my mother that my paintings were exceptional,” Bonnie Breeze recalls as she prepares for her November show at Gallery 10, Sutter Creek. Since that time, as a third grader, Bonnie started drawing trees, and in eighth grade her teacher gave her extra time to do art. She was recommended by that teacher to the high school to be allowed to take advanced art as a freshman. Onward and forward, Bonnie became an Art-Drama major in University and later a major in Elementary Education.
Bonnie began her teaching career at age twenty-one and continued teaching elementary school until her retirement in 2001. She continued her interest in visual and performing arts throughout her years of teaching and family life, and she expressed it in a variety of genres within her teaching.
“Serendipity” is Bonnie’s first show since locating to Sutter Creek in 2010. It is representative of many of the directions Bonnie has gone in the last twelve years.
Everyone is welcome! The show will hang all of November. Gallery hours are daily 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. during November and December.
