Local Artist Bonnie Lucas’ Show, “Collages,” Extended

1994, from Bonie Lucas: "Collages" at Essopus Space March 29 - May 10, 2011

We were thrilled to hear that artist and local art teacher, Bonnie Lucas has had her show extended at Esopus Gallery. We profiled Lucas, who is a much beloved teaching artist at P.S. 110, last month.  This is her first solo show in over a decade. If you haven’t seen the show yet, it’s very worthwhile, and now you have an extra week to do so. “Bonnie Lucas: Collages,” features 30 selections from two series of collages, one from the 1990′s and one from the past year. Esopus Space // 64 W. 3rd Street, #210 // Running through May 10th.   Visit her Facebook page here.
