Dear Artists:

The Bennington has been very fortunate to have the support of many of the finest representational artists working today, from around the states and abroad. Exhibitions by many of the country's most prestigious groups along with artists that have been chosen to participate in shows that we annually curate have given The Bennington a reputation of a venue that exhibits only world-class art in an elegant, state-of-the-art facility. The staff enjoys working with the artists, truly appreciates their talents and knows that the Center would not be able to bring such work to the residents and visitors of Southern Vermont without their support. 

The schedule of shows varies each summer but it typically includes shows juried by the Center along with one or two group shows. We use an on-line jury service. Annual exhibitions open to all interested artists usually include Wildscapes, Impressions of New England, Small Works, American Artists Abroad, and the Laumeister Fine Art Competition.

You can find a link to frequently asked questions below, but always feel free to contact me personally.
