About

Dark Anemones in burgundy wine colors from Gary Bukovnik, whose dazzling watercolor's delight the senses. Cleveland-born and educated Gary Bukovnik has lived in San Francisco for over 40 years. Bukovnik’s art conveys a monumental quality. Primarily using the mediums of watercolor, monotype, and lithograph, Bukovnik fuses sensual vitality with fluid yet powerful colorations, creating floral images of great depth and intensity. In 2003 and 2005, the American Academy in Rome invited Bukovnik to attend the academy as a Visiting Artist and provided him with a room and studio for six weeks. In 2001, he was selected to create a poster for the prestigious List Collection, which creates posters to commemorate programs at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York. Lincoln Center past contributors have included Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Alex Katz, Elizabeth Murray, and Donald Sultan. Solo exhibitions include Caldwell Snyder Gallery in San Francisco and in St. Helena, CA; Trajan Gallery in Carmel, CA; Campton Gallery in New York City; Concept Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA; Elins Eagles-Smith Gallery and A.C.T. Gallery in San Francisco, the Bonfoey Gallery in Cleveland and the Erickson Fine Art Gallery in Healdsburg. Other recent exhibitions have been organized by the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Paula Brown Gallery, Toledo, Neuhoff Gallery, New York; Lisa Kurts Gallery, Memphis; Irving Galleries, Palm Beach; Galerie Kutter, Luxembourg; the Southern Alleghenies. Museum of Art, Johnstown, Pennsylvania; Chin Show Cultural Center, Taipei; Takashimaya, Tokyo; the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh; and Brevard Museum of Art, Melbourne, Florida. Among the artwork displayed at the Brevard Museum of Art was a tapestry based on a Bukovnik watercolor and hand-woven in Aubusson, France by Atelier Raymond Picaud, weavers since the eventeenth century. Atelier Raymond Picaud has been at the forefront of progressive tapestry firms since the 1930s, focusing on images of modern artists such as Alexander Calder, Georges Braque, and Helen Frankenthaler. Bukovnik’s watercolors and monotypes are the subject of Flowers: Gary Bukovnik Watercolors & Monotypes, published by Harry N. Abrams, New York. This book includes a foreword by James J. White, curator at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation; an interview with the artist by Robert Flynn Johnson, curator at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; and an essay about Bukovnik and the depiction of flowers in art by Judith Gordon, a San Francisco-based writer.

Zona, Director of the Butler Institute of American Art, an introduction by Carter E.
