Bonilla's paintings are vibrantly colored abstracts, full of thick daubs and swirls -picture a mash of Van Gogh, Monet, and early Picasso together, stretched.

The show's opening reception is Saturday, from 5-8 at Collette's Antique Barn (2546 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton), followed by a dinner with the artist at One Ocean (one of Trip's favorite restaurants). Even if you're not a huge fan of abstract painting, we promise that the crowd alone will be worth checking out. See you there!
