Spotlight on Keuka

Artistic Alphabet

You might spot Bonnie Barney painting Keuka Lake landscapes en plein air some fine day as you drive around these hills.  Working mostly in watercolor, she began painting more seriously in retirement. Although she has painted on four continents, people request Finger Lakes scenes as their favorites.

Bonnie has learned watercolor painting by apprenticing to more accomplished artist friends, and by taking classes at the Rochester Memorial Art Gallery's Creative Workshop from Dick Kane, Jeanne Lindsay, and Fred Lipp, and from nationally know teachers such as Don Andrews, Frank Webb, Judy Wagner, Tony VanHasselt, Bill Vrsack, Pat Weaver, Margaret Martin, Elizabeth Apgar Smith, and Ed Steinhilper. 

She has painted commissions for The Owens Wildlife Foundation, has provided the logo and art for the Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival, and her paintings of sailboats on Keuka Lake grace the suites at the Best Western Vineyard Suites in Penn Yan.

See her work at Yates Gallery, at an annual Art Barn show on Keuka Lake near Penn Yan July Fourth weekend, or at her home studio at 3415 Brandy Bay,  Penn Yan, NY 14527.
