Bogomir Bogdanovic Estate Retrospective Exhibition at Southwest Gallery


Southwest Gallery is excited to announce a special Estate Retrospective Show for
Saturday, February 11th from 1-5 pm
Southwest Gallery 4500 Sigma Rd.  Dallas, Texas 75244    972.960.8935    800.272.9910   www.swgallery.com

This special retrospective exhibition features his life’s work of the seasons in Oil, Watercolor and Pastel. Meet the artists son, Milan Bogdanovic, February 11th from 1-5 pm to get an exclusive look into the life of Bogomir Bogdanovic.

Born in Senje, Yugoslavia, in 1923, Bogdanovic studied Art and Architecture at Belgrade University and then immigrated to New York in 1957, at the age of 34.
While making a living as an illustrator for a manufacturing company, he painted the seasonal beauty of New York City in oil and watercolor. His heart’s desire was also to capture the picturesque countryside of upstate New York where he discovered the quaint town of Warwick, satisfying his need to be close to New York City for the artists market and the serene subject matter he loved to paint.
Bogdanovic’s work consists of varied subjects, primarily of breathtaking landscapes dotted with people from New York City, Warwick, and neighboring Sussex County. “I paint everything,” he says, but not abstractions, as he prefers his art to be recognizable; “it’s an amazing experience to watch a painting reveal itself, be it on paper or canvas.” Enduring long hours in snow and ice, he enjoys painting on location, rarely using photographs unless he has taken them himself. Bogdanovic compares his profession to being a hunter, searching for the ideas worth talking about. His choices have been the right ones – enabling him to take many painting honors throughout his long career.  He passed away March 25, 2011 survived by his son.
