Rebecca received her BA from Arizona State in Museum Studies and Art History, with a focus in Italian Renaissance. She first started working with Bonner David Gallery in college as an intern. After graduating, she moved to Italy and worked with Artissima, Italy’s most important contemporary art fair. Always keeping in touch with her Bonner David family, she was encouraged to move to New York to pursue a master’s degree in Art Business from Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Straight out of her graduate program, she started working in Christie’s Collection Management platform, which was a perfect fit as she has always been passionate about working with collectors, and helping them with their art collections. She spent several years leading client-facing teams in top auction houses and decided she missed work closely with art and her Bonner David family. Rebecca helped open the New York boutique on the Upper East side.

Founded in 2002 by two “art lovers,” Christi Bonner Manuelito and Clark David Olson embarked on a journey to create an “outside the box” gallery concept. A thriving artist herself, Christi feels a special connection with artists. Her art background and BFA along Clark’s love of art as a collector and experience as a Master docent at the Phoenix Art Museum make them a great match! Together, with over 45 years of experience in the fine art, they selected a collection of artists who bring together their love of figurative, landscapes, and realistic art, with a taste of the most well-known and gifted contemporary artists. Built on relationships, Clark and Christi bring their vision to reality and the gallery enduringly became “A Whole Family of Fine Art.”
