“There’s a Fruitfly in my Cabernet” by Jess Bonin
Honey Salon & Gallery, 310 W Holly Street

Price: Free

This December Honey Salon & Gallery is proud to present “There’s a Fruitfly in my Cabernet” by the mutli-talented Jess Bonin.  In her Honey debut, Bonin references the flashy aesthetics of circus banners mixed with the clean line illustration style of her tattoo training to convey the simple inconveniences of everyday life. These small failures and miseries are a source of constant testing, the daily “trials and tribulations”, yet within them we often find enough wry, morose humor to keep us afloat.

Jess Bonin is an artist, musician and tattooer currently residing in Mount Vernon, Washington. She received her BA in painting from WWU in 2006. As a commercial artist, her work has been featured in the permanent collections of hotels located in Portland, New York, and Kansas City. As an illustrator, she has been featured in ten published works. She is co-founder of the Lucky Dumpster in Edison, Washington, has served as an art handler at the Seattle Art Fair, Tacoma Art Museum, and Greg Kucera Gallery (SEA), as well as co-founding Good Neighbor Gallery, an alternative living-room art space. She currently works full time as a tattooer at Good Vibes in Mount Vernon, and fronts the band Sleepy Genes. She is a proud mother to a small dog and a large cat.

There’s a Fruitfly in my Cabernet” will debut December 1st with an artist reception and holiday heartwarming from 6 to 10 pm. Art patrons attending the opening are encouraged to bring feminine hygiene products and diapers for a winter collection benefitting the women and children of Lydia Place.
