The 2021 James King Bonnar Show
presented by the Newton Art Association
November 2 – December 4, 2021
The Newton Art Association was established in 1949 by James King Bonnar and a group of local artists who wanted to create an artistic community in this area. The idea for the NAA was Bonnar’s. He felt that artists needed the support of each other to share ideas, techniques and opportunities to paint together. Bonnar was a prolific painter and traveled throughout New England recording its beauty through paintings. Bonnar was commissioned to install murals in many community buildings and homes throughout the area. We remain grateful today for his vision, his talent, and his earnest desire for everyone to experience the joy of art.
