July 29, 2009 (La Mesa) – Holy cow—a unique art show is coming to La Mesa! O’Dunn Fine Art has acquired some “udderly” delightful images of the cow by Danish impressionist Gunnar Bundgaard (view a complete 20th Century collection at www.odunnfineart.com.) Providing delicious contrast are post-modern renderings of the divine bovine by Lionel Talaro, on view in the gallery August 18-30.


“Who knew that cows are hot? We did,” says gallery owner Shannon O’Dunn, who offers this advice. “Paintings are subject to prior sale.....don’t beef at us if they’re spoken for!”

Guests are invited to savor refreshments and meet Talaro at a reception on Saturday August 22, from 6 to 8 pm.


Talaro, having created many stimulating figurative and fantasy images over the past 15 years, forges ahead with a passion for painting cows. “The character and playfulness of cows never get the attention they deserve,” notes the artist. “Their expressions say so much, and they truly are beautiful.”

Educated at the Art Center in Pasadena and the Art Institute in Calabasas, Lionel began his career as an illustrator in 1992 in the motion picture and comic book industries. The appeal for Talaro's work has been recognized via numerous awards and an extensive commercial and private client list.

Please RSVP for the reception on August 22 at shannon@odunnfineart.com.
