NEW IN TOWN

▪ For Miami natives Grant Bonnier and Christina Bonnier, their new Bonnier Gallery at 3408 NW Seventh Ave. represents both a homecoming and a long-term commitment. After a stint in the Boston area, the couple returned to Miami to start a family. Their Allapattah gallery includes both local artists and international ones, thanks to longstanding connections forged through his father, New York art dealer Peder Bonnier. That explains the blue-chip artists whose works appear in the gallery, including Sol Lewitt, Robert Mangold, Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, Robert Ryman, Carl Andre and Christo. In fact, his parents met in 1983 when his father, driving the boat that ferried Christo around the not-yet-surrounded Biscayne Bay islands, saw his mother, the late Deborah Grant, who was working on one of the beaches. He used a megaphone to ask her out. thebonniergallery.com
