New at The Bennington
Master carver Floyd Scholz will be here this weekend for the start of his newest carving class. He'll demonstrate how to carve an atlantic puffin over the course of eight days, starting with a block of wood and creating an amazingly lifelike work of art
The nineteenth annual Art of the Animal Kingdom opened last month at The Bennington. For the second year we have had artists record explanations for their peaces, describing their inspirations and thought processes. These recordings are part of our interactive in house audio tour, but a sneak peek can be found on our blog, where artist Rob Mullen discusses his piece Confluence Cornucopia.
A complete catalogue of the work in this year's Art of the Animal Kingdom is now available in our shop.
The Oil Painters of America opened their national exhibition at The Bennington last month. Thirty-one awards and cash prizes totaling over $100,000 were awarded to paintings by some of the best oil painters in the country. The show will be up at The Bennington until the twenty-seventh of July, and is available online here.
