Asa Cheffetz: Vermont Wood Engravings

This fall on view in the Regional Artists Gallery of the Bennington Museum is the meticulous work of print maker Asa Cheffetz (1896-1965). His wood engravings served as printing plates and from those came beautiful prints. During the 1930s and 40s, Cheffetz produced most of his highly detailed wood engravings. Inspired by the Vermont countryside, his landscapes portray his strong affection for the land and his simple yet detailed blends of the hills, sky and water. On view through December 30.
