Bond art wins “Best in Show” at Audubon Center

"Scattered" by Jonathan Bond

Jonathan Bond’s original oil painting titled “Scattered” was recently awardedtop honors at the John James Audubon Center at Millgrove. Bond was recognized with the Terry Lipton Best in Show Award at the 8th Annual Drawn From NatureShow held at the Audubon home site in Lower Providence Township near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

Bond’s oil on wood panel featured a striking view of scattered pine cones andleaves, symbolizing many of the people Bond has known in his life. The horizontal format of the art also lent itself to the theme of a timeline and the transience of life and nature. Bond will be exhibiting the painting with more than 35 new works at the upcoming Hawk Mountain Arts Tour on June 1 and Berks County’s Best Kept Secrets Tour from June 14 – June 29. The painting will then travel with other Bond originals for an upcoming exhibition at Utopic Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.

Tour goers can visit Bond’s gallery at 59 Kempton Rd., Kempton during both local tours or by appointment. Mr. Bond can also be contacted via email at or by phone at 610-756-4490. Additional information is available at Visit for more details about the respective tours.
