Dionne Bonner received 2007 GAP Award funding to complete three paintings, restore twelve paintings, and frame all works in a series entitled African American Pioneers of the Pacific Northwest. These portraits will be featured as part of an installation depicting the contributions of African Americans within the region. Written biographies, live music, and interactive video presentations will be employed to highlight the lasting contributions of African American pioneers in the Pacific Northwest. The work will be shown at Barefoot Studios in January 2008. Dionne was featured in the Summer 2008 issue of Centrum’s Experience magazine.
