ANDREA BONFILS SOLO EXHIBITION “PLUNGE” GIVES BACK AT ART EXHIBIT IN LOS ANGELES
Award-winning artist Andrea L. Bonfils is coming to Los Angeles to host an exciting exhibit of her fine art paintings and photography which speak to humanity and nature while reflecting her life’s experiences. Collectors will have the opportunity to shop for the holiday by purchasing online and viewing work in person (by appointment) before the New Year. The proceeds from the Art Exhibit will benefit the Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs and its 140,000 members.
Inspired by environmental and humanitarian concerns, Bonfils explores submerged life as an infinite dynamic and surprise where kaleidoscopes of color are formed by elements of nature. Bonfils captures a stillness that never occurs, thus life becomes art.
Andrea’s work is shown in corporate and private collections worldwide, including several Tiffany’s & Co. stores in the United Kingdom. Her work can be viewed at many major art fairs including the next LA Art Fair in January or in the permanent collection at The Museum of Encaustic Art.
This Art Exhibit came about from Andrea’s previous connection with the Boys & Girls Clubs. Bonfils explains, “As a full time artist for the past 20 years, I can now bridge my former executive role at the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Monica with my efforts in this fundraising event to fund art programs. The humanity element in all my previous non-profit work has been constant. However, it is now more abstractly conveyed in my art.”
The Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs exists to further the mission for the 22 Boys & Girls Clubs which is; to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens. “It is important that these funds will be earmarked for after-school visual arts programs. Through our culturally diverse and engaging lessons, we help build creativity and critical thinking skills for all our Boys & Girls Clubs members,” stated Mary Hewitt, Executive Director of the Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs.
