Critique of Bonnie Hodges' Portrait Exhibit



Mr. Charles Brady visited Bonnie Hodges' portait exhibit at the Edmonds Public Library recently and offered the following critique:



"Lynn" ... the surrounding desert colors create an amazing "non-contrast" with lady.


"Native American" ... facial colors match well with the facial structures.





"San Juan Pueblo Indian" ... excellent - with the sympathetic coloring.


"English Aristocrat" ... posturing is perfect - unusually good facial structure.


"Night Fishermen" ... curious glances - good matching between the grainy faces, boat surfaces and sweaters.


"Self-Portrait" ... Artist paints an undetermined emotion - on one side with full, strong facial tones, the other side in shadow. Nothing hiding - just the light able to control the magical direction of the light. What a feat! The secret is out ... for it is the artist with her "Brush of Light."


"Pear with Apples" [not at the library exhibit] ... Some ole' fruit on a table? Not quite. Here, the artist paints the subtle, competitive balance between the fruit and the woven colors of the table cloth. What a wonderful diversion.

Many thanks to Mr. Brady for his nice comments.

A local artist’s portraits are on display at the Edmonds Library, at 650 Main Street in downtown Edmonds, from Nov. 2 to Dec. 15.

The show is put on by the Edmonds Arts Commission as part of its cultural plan to establish Edmonds as a destination for the arts.

The Edmonds Library (650 Main Street) is featuring the portraits of Edmonds’ artist, Bonnie Hodges.

The Edmonds Arts Commission (EAC) oversees the library exhibits as part of its Community Cultural Plan. The EAC seeks to “ensure that the arts are integral to our community’s quality of life, economic vitality, and central identity.” The EAC’s vision is to enhance Edmonds as an established arts destination.

Hodges is relatively new to Edmonds, but she is already very active on the Edmonds’ art scene.

Law Office of Cynthia Hodges



Hodges teaches painting classes at Edmonds Community College and at Cole Gallery. Her paintings have been featured in local shows, such as the Edmonds Arts Festival Juried Gallery, Edmonds Art Studio Tour, the Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show, the Emerald Downs Equine Art Show, and several Edmonds Art Walks.

Hodges has also donated paintings to support local charities, such as the Edmonds Mural Society and the Louis Braille School.

Hodges works mainly with oil, pastel, watercolor, and computer-rendered art.

Her realistic style brings spirit and energy to her portraits and other paintings. Jerry Goldstein, the owner of Post Gallery in Houston, described Hodges as “an extremely versatile artist [with] an ability to be tight and expressive with a use of color value that is extremely good.”

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival


Each Spring, Skagit Valley (near Mount Vernon, Washington) blossoms with daffodils, tulips, irises, and lilies. The acres of flowers attract many visitors who are drawn to the brilliant colors and beautiful scenery. Visitors also enjoy such festivities as the Tulip Festival Street Fair, art shows, wine-tasting, and the Anacortas Quilt Walk.


Bonnie Hodges has celebrated the Tulip Festival with three oil paintings, all of which have been very successful. "Skagit Valley Daffodils" won 3rd place and a cash prize at the 2010 Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show (Mountlake Terrace) in the paintings & drawings category:
