After a hiatus of showing work in a solo exhibition capacity, Bonnie Collura, associate professor of art, will be showing new work in three strategically placed solo exhibitions between September 2017 and January 2019. These projects aim to highlight different works done over the past 10 years in her Bellefonte studio, while she was teaching at Penn State.
“Moving a sculpture-based studio from Brooklyn, NY to Bellefonte, PA came with many adjustments. On the plus side, I was finally able to afford a working place that provided space around the work, not only the bare minimum square footage required to make one piece at a time. Working slowly within this new space gave me permission to reflect and experiment, something I would have been fearful to do when I lived in New York when showing at a more frequent capacity. Once I allowed myself to engage fully in the process of re-learning my work, I began forming three distinct projects that have taken over a decade to fully understand,” she said.
