The Bennington Arts Guild is always worth a visit with its wide range of reasonably priced art and craft items, all created by artist members who co-own and operate the gallery at 103 South Street, near the crossroads in downtown Bennington.
In addition to the main gallery in the front of the store, a second smaller space showcases the work of individual artists. During September Judy Kniffin will show her oil paintings alongside woven bags by Paula Kautz-LaPorte. October 6 to November 17 will be turn of Dan Barber and Colleen Williams who will display hooked rugs and porcelain respectively. And from November 22 the Holiday Art Show will focus on beautiful holiday gifts. Meet the artists and enjoy free refreshments at opening receptions on September 1 and October 6, both from 5 – 8 pm.
