Frank Bennett Artwork
Frank W. Bennett was raised in Keene, NH. I went on to attend Vesper George School of Art in Boston, graduating with a Commercial Art degree in 1969. After art school, I held several jobs in different fields, including seasonal work on shrimp boats in Texas, house painting, home and commercial construction with structural engineering license. Industrial design positions at GenRad and A&M Models. My last job was troubleshooting customers' electronic book files so they could go direct to press, for a book printing company before I retired in 2007. This is when I began creating art on a daily basis, primarily with acrylics and oils for plein air landscapes, but I carry a watercolor sketchbook whenever I travel as well. For decades I have enjoyed doing 3-dimensional forms in various media, including stained glass, wood furniture, metal, and found materials. My work has been exhibited at The Post Road Art Center in my adopted hometown of Marlborough, MA and also at the Northborough Public library. I have works in private collections in Freeport, WA, The Rainforest Inn in Puerto Rico and Fire Island, NY. I frequently paint in and around my vacation home in Antrim, NH and have taken classes and workshops with established artists such as Michael Chesley Johnson, Robert Collins, pastel artists Alain J. Picard and Robert Carston.
