Bonnie Gloris (Parsons Illustration ’06) sent us the following email and information about a show opening this week and her own awesome accomplishments! She writes:
I thought you would like to hear about a very interesting exhibition I’m curating that opens next week at Broadway Gallery NYC. The show includes several Parsons Illustration Department alumni and faculty members, including myself. I thought you’d also like to hear that as a result of this curatorial project, Broadway Gallery NYC has hired me full-time as their Gallery Manager and also as the Art Director of their publication “NY Arts Magazine”.
Nature Vs. Nurture collects images that depict the tension between opposing forces, one wild and one domestic, that characterize the human psyche.

“The Immersion of the Senses,” by Parsons Illustration Alum Bonnie Gloris, appears in the May issue of Brain Topography, A Journal of Cerebral Function and Dynamics. The oil painting, which depicts the five boroughs of New York City, each representing a sensory organ, illustrates the journal’s preface. This special issue was widely distributed at the International Multisensory Research Forum’s 10th annual conference in New York this past June 29 – July 2, 2009.
You are invited to:
The Birds and the Bees, a group exhibition curated by Andrea Morin at LITM, a gallery/restaurant in downtown Jersey City. Includes work by local artist and Parsons Illustration Alum Bonnie Gloris.
“Springtime is finally here! As the world comes back to life, sap flows, flowers bloom, and thoughts of romance stir. These artists capture those spring feelings of passion, sensuality, love, romance, and friskiness!” -LITM.
Show up until May 31st, 2009

A sketchbook of Parsons Illustration Alumni Bonnie Gloris is included in the Sketchbook Project: “Everyone We Know” . This traveling group exhibition of sketchbooks organized by Art House (an artist co-op and gallery) is on tour February 27 – April 2, 2009. And in fact, the tour stops in Brooklyn tonight! Here are the details:
Mar 13, 2009
7:00 PM – 7:00 PM Brooklyn, NY
195 Morgan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11237
Over 2,000 artists from around the country were sent a small Moleskine sketchbook. Their task was to fill the book with “everyone we know”. Every book that we receive back will be on display. Visitors are encouraged to pick up the books and freely browse through them.
3rd Ward is a member-based artists’ co-op who has remarkable facilities available to artists as well as a great vibe. 3rd Ward’s views are so similar to Art House’s, that it is clearly a match made in heaven. We can’t wait for the show and especially to meet everyone at 3rd Ward as well as all of our New York participants!
Way to go, Bonnie! And if you’re in the Brooklyn area, stop by and see all this fantastic art.
