Artist Talk by Lynn Benson 4/5/18

Join us for an inspiring and thought provoking artist talk by
Lynn Benson as she share details about making the
2018 Beach Museum of Art Gift Print and other recent projects.

About the Exhibition 
The Beach Museum of Art exhibition unveils the acquisition of Benson’s Waterplaces, a suite of 101 drawings on vellum paper. The exhibition will also present the artist’s 2018 Friends of the Beach Museum of Art Gift Print, Dancing on the Table. This work reflects Benson’s interest in water sources that flow under the ground such as the Ogallala Aquifer in parts of Western Kansas and surrounding states. Benson brings attention to this hidden natural treasure in a chine collé lithograph with gold leaf and coloring applied by hand.

The new gift print is available for purchase. For more information on supporting the museum as a Friend or purchasing a gift print contact Robin Lonborg at 785-532-7718 or rlonborg@k-state.edu
