The Art Bar Presents the "Fall Art Show" in Scottsdale
Their name reflects their work and incorporates their names: Bernstein, Armstrong and Rapaport = "The Art Bar". The concept behind "The Art Bar" are three dynamic female artists who have created a brilliant pop up art series and gallery to showcase their work, (as well as invited guest artists) offering a new personality and flare. They have started presenting these pop up galleries typically November through February, roughly 4-6 times per year. Each event encompasses a sense of a "happy hour art show, i.e. bringing the fun back into collecting art or as they say, "Raising the bar on Art."
Donna Bernstein is a largely self-taught who has studied privately with such artist's as international painter Robert Dash, contemporary abstractionist Christine Raymond, and modern metal sculptress Sue Latta. Bernstein's personal artistic blend and signature clean, fresh style creates art that is modern in structure yet deeply intimate, appealing to both the horse lover and formal art collector. Bernstein is now expanding the design of her paintings into equestrian fashion silk scarves, celebrating her work as wearable art. Over the years Bernstein has been profiled in numerous publications both in print and online including Riding Magazine; Horse Times Magazine of Cairo; Fine Magazine. Bernstein's work is included in both public and private collections around the world and she exhibits regularly around the United States.
