Do you like fine art and crafts created by local artists? Do you enjoy meeting and talking to the actual artists and learning more about their work? Do you like to support local artists and artisans? Then you mustn’t miss the Bennington Arts Guild.
Organized, run and staffed by its artist members since 2005 and located at 103 South Street at the “Four Corners” of downtown Bennington, the gallery is a great place to find one of a kind pieces from local artists – everything from jewelry to furniture, paintings to pottery, photography and hand-turned wood to stained glass. The Bennington Arts Guild gallery has been voted Bennington’s top art gallery and called a “must-see” by the Boston Globe.
The Guild also hosts guest shows. From September 6th – 30th there will be a joint exhibition by two Bennington artists: Tony Conner’s plein air watercolor landscapes will be on view alongside Teru Simon’s sculptural ceramics. From October 4th – November 18th MaryJane Sarvis will have a show of hand painted fabrics, scarves, bags and pillows as well as photography. And from November 22nd through December the Guild will host its annual Holiday Show.
The gallery is open 10 – 6 Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 12 – 4 on Sunday. It’s closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. For more information visit the Guild’s website at www.benningtonartsguild.org or call (802) 442-7838.
