New Artist Spotlight: Donna Brumbergs, Benna Holden, and Diego Rodriguez

Happy New Artists Day! Every Thursday, UGallery welcomes a batch of new artists and artwork to UGallery. The “New Artist Spotlight” series highlights them.

Send a nice, little “Hello” to Donna Brumbergs, Benna Holden, and Diego Rodriguez. Below is a little bit about their work. If you like what you see, let them know by leaving a comment on their profile pages and welcoming them to UGallery! I’m sure they’d love to hear from you.

Donna Brumbergs. Avon, Connecticut

Donna Brumbergs mixes realism and impressionism on her palette. She paints with a perfect blend of color to set a mood that is at once nostalgic and romantic. She says, “I hope my work will invoke the reminiscence of a comfortable moment from the past that [viewers] will want to revisit time after time.”

Benna Holden. New York, New York


Like the impasto master Nicolas de Stael, Benna Holden lays paint on thick. She uses a variety of mediums to turn her abstracts into paintings full of complex texture. As an art teacher, she is in constant pursuit of the “happiness, confidence and excitement” that art can bring.

Diego Rodriguez. Bogota, DC, Colombia


First prize in animal photography goes to Diego Rodriguez. His Pure Breed Portraiture collection honors the art of breeding by using canines as his models. Each portrait is the result of pure craftsmanship and a high degree of precision.
