Bonnie Levinson is a multi-disciplinary artist working in multi-imagery photography, painting, collage, mixed media and performance and often the intersection of these mediums. Her work is a combination of place and how it takes her into the unknown and the atmospheric realm. Moving to Florida has been a major change; -- her palette, forms and point of view have transformed significantly. The influence of the changing environment, the colors, light, smells can be experienced in her work. During the creative process her goal is to transmute her subconscious into beauty, embracing resistance, as she creates. Her work allows her to enter a portal, a creative meditative space—channeling the years of visual experience she has had looking at art. Her work is a balance between control and accident. Bonnie embraces becoming an active part of the vital arts scene in Palm Beach County through her active studio practice at the Arts Warehouse in Delray Beach. Her artwork is in many private collections and has been included in exhibitions most recently in a solo exhibition in Roxbury NY, in Delray Beach, the San Francisco Bay Area, Malibu CA, Fort Collins, Aspen, Snowmass CO and Middlebury VT. Her career spans more than three decades in the arts as an arts administrator, museum educator, curator and practicing artist. She served as Deputy Director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, VP for Development for the New York Public Library, Curatorial and Visual Arts consultant for the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy at Federal Hall in NYC. She graduated with a BA from Kenyon college and received a Master of Arts in Teaching Museum Education from George Washington, DC. She received a Thomas J Watson Foundation Fellowship and an NEA Travel grant for photography for the Festival of American Folklife at the Smithsonian Institution.
