The Bennington Center for the Arts is thrilled to be partnering with the esteemed organization of American Women Artists for a two-part show and workshop series this September. The festivities will be kicked off with five separate workshops taught by Master Members Carol Arnold, Bethanne Kinsella Cople, Pam Ingalls, Nancy Boren, and Kathy Lemke Waste. The workshops—open to a range of skill sets—begin on either September 20th or the 21st, and go through the 22nd. Both oil and watercolor techniques will be used to create works ranging from delicate portraits to brushy, plein air landscapes. On September 23rd, the two part show will open and include a variety of pieces from the National Juried Exhibition as well as that of AWA Master & Signature Members. These shows will highlight both paintings and three dimensional sculptures in a wide and unique range of media, such as charcoal, ceramic, watercolor, and bronze. To celebrate the opening, there will also be an evening reception and awards ceremony. To sign up for the workshops, email Olivia at email@example.com or call her at (802)442-7158.
