New at the Bennington
New Shows will be coming soon to the Bennington
The Laumeister Fine Art Competition
Our annual competition will this year be juried by Calvin Liang, a highly respected member of the Oil Painters of America and the California Art Club.
Representational work is not limited to subject and each year this show offers our patrons a very impressive collection of work by many of today’s finest artists. Monetary awards will be announced at the opening on September 23.
We are excited to again exhibit a show that portrays the passion for our natural world that so many of our artists share. Whether these paintings, drawings, or sculptures focus on wildlife or instead depict the beauty, chaos, or serenity of the wild places on this earth, we expect the show that David Rankin curates to be an outstanding and thought-provoking exhibition.
American Artists Abroad
This show will be composed of fine art created by American artists inspired by travels abroad. American Artists Abroad has been a patron favorite, as the memories or dreams of the sights, sounds and emotions of a foreign scene are further enhanced when seen through the eye of a talented artist.
Black & White
We tend to slip into patterns of thinking—quite literally—in black and white, right and wrong, true and false. But do we ever stop to think about the depth that can be found solely within texture, lighting, shape, and perspective? There is nowhere to hide in black and white work. Whether it be charcoal, ink, oil, or even wire, technique and subject matter truly take center stage.
The Small Works Show
Every year our Small Works Show greets our visitors with beautiful work in a broad variety of subjects but a size limitation of 14 inches. Work can be taken at time of purchase, unlike work in our other exhibitions. We look forward to another dynamic show in 2017.
