Bonny Leibowitz and Benjamin Terry
August 4 – September 1, 2012
|The August 2012 exhibition at Cohn Drennan Contemporary brings together Benjamin Terry
and Bonny Leibowitz in Blurr. Both artists work in dissimilar media and techniques, but each
presents works of art that address life in transition - transformation of the physical and
psychological. The Blurr artists present life in and around the edges, and sometimes capture
what happens between the frames in the movie of their lives.
Bonny Leibowitz has been an influential participant of the Dallas art community since the
late ‘80s when she moved to Dallas. The artist studied at Temple University’s Tyler College
of Art in Philadelphia then worked at a Dallas gallery and eventually began exhibiting
in the region and throughout the southwest. Her one person shows include those in Dallas,
Palm Springs, Chicago and Santa Fe, to name a few. Bonny has been recognized for
her art internationally through Israel bonds, traveling to Israel with Partnership 2000. Bonny
has exhibited through NTBCA at IBM and is involved with art donations raising monies for Art
and Advocacy. Bonny's work is included in Tim Phelan's 50 Contemporary Artists and owns
The Bonny Studio in Richardson, Texas, teaching painting classes and workshops, and is a
partner at The Encaustic Center. Her recent presentation at the Sixth International Encaustic
Conference in Provincetown, MA was the featured seminar of the convention.
Benjamin Terry is an MFA candidate at the University of North Texas and a recent recipient
of the Dallas Museum of Art’s Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund Award. The past two years
have been seminal in the development of Benjamin’s work as evidenced by the inclusion
of his paintings in Dallas’ most influential venues for emerging artists. The paintings exhibited
in this exhibition will travel to the Box 13 Artspace in Houston for the artist’s first solo show in Houston.

created by graduate students enrolled in the University of North Texas, College of Visual Art and
Design, Professional Practices for Art. The Spring 2012 exhibition was titled LINK, in reference
to the combined efforts among students to produce work specifically for this annual event.
As the students reflected upon the general disconnection between many of the studio art
departments within UNT’s College of Visual Arts and Design, the idea to combine talents and
viewpoints came to the forefront of discussion. Collaboration between students, by way of
interdepartmental studio visits and extended conversations, yielded the works of art in the
