Charles Bronson: Vista Art Foundation

Native Californian Artist Charles Bronson resides in Vista. For 20 years Charles worked in the Commercial Art Field for the Signage Industry. In 2000 Charles embarked on his own, to specialize in Copper Metal Sculpture. Six years ago he helped found and is a Board member of the Vista Art Foundation, a successful community organization. In 2007 the VAF gave $20,000 to local charities and schools, and provided gallery space and classes for young artists, sponsored an International Artist Exhibition, and started the Creek Walk Art Show. In 2008 Charles devoted 3 months to transform a 2000 square foot historic building into the new home of the Vista Art Foundation-Gallery 204.
