SHOW CHAIR:

THEME:

Small works of art for the gift giving holiday season


JUDGE:

Bonnie Ferguson Butler

Bonnie is a juried artist and photographer at the Workhouse Arts Center in Gallery 902. 

En plein air methods define her painting style. It captures her imagination with a challenging, guerrilla-style painting method that is both close to nature as well as in the thick of the environment. 

Butler purchased her first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, with her birthday money when she turned nine years old. Avidly recording life around her since, Butler's high point so far in her photography career has been a first place prize in architecture presented by Hullihen Williams Moore, a student of Ansel Adams

Metaphorically, Butler saw her first tree as a result of a required art class outside of her Science majors at Wofford College. Transformed, she then redirected to balance Art and Biochemistry over the coming years. Graduate work in Humanities and Art History at the University of Richmond gave her the proper foundation for further studies. Evolving through other media, she primarily paints in soft pastels and has studied with Richard McKinley and Maggie Price. Her joy is working en plein air and she sees trees regularly now. She is also founder and president of the Pastel Society of Virginia.
