Works on Paper: A Decade of Collecting

February 1 through May 5

Opening in the Works on Paper Gallery is Works on Paper: A Decade of Collecting, on view through May 5. Bennington Museum has always collected works on paper, with a focus on historic materials. Recently, a greater focus has been placed on 20th-century and contemporary material. Now in the fifth season of our Works on Paper Gallery, the Museum celebrates with an exhibition that features a disparate body of works, from historic to contemporary and self-taught works, to creations by Bennington Modernists. Artists represented include Gayleen Aiken, Milton Avery, Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley, Paul Feeley, Luigi Lucioni, Duane Michals, and Norman Rockwell. “It’s really my goal to highlight the diversity of our collections and collecting practices in this show,” states curator Jamie Franklin.
