Summer Artist Showcase

The City of Fontana is excited to announce its Summer Artist Showcase Exhibitor, Bonnie Lambert. 

Bonnie Lambert is an Expressionist Oil Painter who loves to paint with a vibrant palette and expressive brushstrokes to share her vision of an essence of the urban experience. A former professional stage actress, Bonnie believes that the canvas is her theater, intense color and deep contrast are her emotional stage lighting, and her actors are a vibrant palette and expressive, impasto brushstrokes. 

Bonnie’s artworks will be on display at the Art Depot Gallery starting Wednesday, July 6 though Friday, August 26. The Art Depot Gallery is located at 16822 Spring St. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Friday 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm and Saturday and Sundays 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Gallery entry is free of charge.
