Elvis, meets Paul Newman. Unsuspecting beachgoers in “Jaws” bleed out in a jumble of technicolor de Kooning scribbles. Danny and Sandy tap away on a dance floor; not made of gym-class linoleum, but rather a pink-streaked Helen Frankenthaler painting. These unlikely duos can only mean one thing… esteemed artist and friend of the gallery, Bonnie Lautenberg, is coming to town! Her innovative photography collection, “Artistica! Where Hollywood Meets Art History,” melds two perennially prevalent but distinctly demarcated cultural forces: the austere, highbrow world of high art, and Hollywood’s whirlwind. Her compositions pair famous films and pieces of art from the same year, capturing the creative landscape of a year and creating an invaluable time capsule for a particular cultural moment.

For those who can’t make Miami Art Week 2022 during Art Basel this year, a special opportunity presents itself to meet Bonnie and view her unique collection at C. Parker Gallery in Greenwich October 13th through November 6th. This fascinating exhibition comes to Greenwich after being featured at the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Lautenberg is an artist, photographer and writer based in New York and Palm Beach. During the past 30 years, her works have been featured in numerous museums, gallery shows and art festivals throughout the United States. Her artworks  are permanently installed in eight museum collections, the New York Historical Society’s Center for the Study of American Culture, and in 2022, Lautenberg was appointed by the White House to the President’s Advisory Committee on the Arts (PACA).

“Artistica! came about when I wanted to do something conceptual and something different, so I began thinking about what artists are influenced by,” Lautenberg explains, “Current events, things they are surrounded by, and other art forms came to mind.” “I started thinking about art forms and focused on films and paintings.”
