Artist of the Month: Paul V. Bonneau

Paul V. Bonneau is the newest artist to EcoHome Studio and kicks off our revamped Artist of the Month Program! We will now be featuring one artist at a time, showing pieces of their work in the showroom and hosting an artist reception for each one.  We hope that this will allow our customers to learn more about each artist’s work that we enjoy so much.  The reception for Bonneau will be held at EcoHome on July 17th, 2014 from 5:30-7:30pm.  Join us in celebrating this artist and his work!
