Bonnie Crossley is the Bald Eagle Art League (BEAL) artist exhibiting for the month of March at the Genetti 4th Street Grille Gallery located in the Genetti Hotel and Suites. The exhibit of her work opens with a reception on First Friday, March 3rd from 5pm-8pm. The exhibit is open to the public during regular 4th Street Grille hours through Tuesday, April 4th. The Gallery is located in the back room of the 4th Street Grille in the Genetti Hotel and Suites, 200 West 4th Street, Downtown Williamsport.

Bonnie says, “The title of my exhibit is "Time" since our lives revolve around it — the past, the present and the future. Growing up in the 60’s, I have many memories from that time; the Vietnam War, the Kennedys, Martin Luther King, clothing styles, the music and the Beatles and have included some works from those periods." She works in different mediums, including photography, oil, acrylic, watercolor and collage work.

Her first art teacher Doris Heller Tuefel was a great influence. In the late 70’s she spent the summer with a group of volunteers painting a circus mural on the Five & Dime in downtown Williamsport under the direction of Stanislaus Wisniewski, an art professor at Lock Haven College. It was appreciated by everyone but unfortunately was painted over when the building changed ownership.

A Williamsport native, Bonnie now lives in Montoursville and worked for 30 years as a floral designer. "I never tire of the amazing beauty and vibrant colors of flowers and wanting to capture them on canvas. I’m inspired by nature, especially in our local parks, and enjoy taking photographs. Everything that I see, I view as a potential painting." Bonnie noted her grateful association with the Bald Eagle Art League. "It’s so great being a member of such a very inspirational group as the Bald Eagle Art League." For more information about her art you can contact Bonnie at 570-368-2498
