Authors & Artists: Portraits by Bonnie Gloris
Pequod Deck: 1st Floor Robeson Campus Center, entrance of Starbucks
“Authors & Artists” is an ongoing series of portraits in which Bonnie Gloris mixes realistic portraiture with more ambiguous elements to delve into the personalities of her subjects, inviting viewers to form their own conclusions and decipher the works line by line. The portraits are small in scale and as intimate as family photographs, their kitschy frames interacting with their subjects’ elevated fame and stature.
Bonnie Gloris is a visual artist and independent curator who has shown her work in dozens of exhibitions across the United States. She is currently on the staff of Arts Guild New Jersey.
