20 Sep Bonita Glaser “In the Moment”
Picturesque Colors of Seascapes and Landscapes provide inspiration for Bonita Glaser’s October show “In the Moment,” Artists’ Gallery at Taylor’s Collective.
The show runs from October 1 through November 2, 2019, with a reception on Saturday, October 5, from 3-5pm.
Glaser’s work reflects her perception of the familiar environment that is part of her daily experience. Raised in rural Pennsylvania, she has a particular affinity for plein air painting of the countryside. Maryland’s landscape is linked to her childhood memories of the bucolic scenes of rural Pennsylvania that influenced her earliest paintings.
“The beauty of seascapes and the Maryland landscape have been the subjects of many of my recent paintings. This October they will be featured in my exhibition at Artists’ Gallery,” commented Glaser. “This show also includes some of my plein air paintings from the yearly Howard County Arts Council’s, “Paint It”, a July painting weekend on Main Street in Old Ellicott City.”
A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Glaser began her career as a commercial artist and illustrator at the Wall Street Journal’s National Observer in Silver Spring, Maryland. Her studies with master-painter Skip Lawrence redefined her approach to watercolor painting.
She is an active member of the Howard County art community, a founding member of Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City and a signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Participating in many local and regional juried exhibitions, she has had many solo exhibitions, winning awards for her work. Her paintings and commissioned work are in many private collections.
