Dear Friends, I am thrilled to present Local Artists Chuck Aaron and Bonnie Zuckerman’s Art Show “Fall for Art”, October 1st-21st, 2017 at HorseSpirit Arts Gallery. Chuck Aaron photographs the beauty of nature, landscapes, and urban scenery, as well as turns wood. Bonnie Zuckerman creates stunning hand-painted ceramic art with unique designs.

Opening Reception: Sunday, October 1st, 1-4PM. Come enjoy their beautiful artwork in the company of friends, with festive beverages and non-nutritional food groups!

About the Artists:
Chuck Aaron: His art allows him to create physical objects that express the beauty he perceives in the world around him. His photographs capture visual moments—a bird in flight, fall colors, a child’s joyful exuberance, a rusted street lamp. His woodturning engenders objects that emphasize the beauty of color and wood grain in a way that is both visual and tactile.

Bonnie Zuckerman: She creates highly detailed, one of a kind, hand-painted ceramics. She uses a wax resist technique to create a stained glass effect on her pieces. Each piece of art tells a whimsical story and incorporates imagery from her personal visual lexicon. Favorite subjects include birds and other animals, flowers, and fairy tale landscapes.
In closing: Please come join us for this wonderful art show, as well as see the original creations of 45 other local artists! Abundant kindness, Robin Holliday
