‘Something About Summer’ at Bennington Museum
Opening this weekend and on view through October 2 at the Bennington Museum is a vibrant exhibition of recent paintings by Baltimore and North Bennington painter Mark Barry. A reception to meet the artist will be held in the Museum’s Regional Artists Gallery at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 16. The show features a number of Barry’s paintings based on images of the everyday life, whether it’s biking, exploring nature or swinging on a swing. The artist uses rich color, drawing inspiration from everyday observations and depicting his family in everyday situations. Barry’s most recent solo exhibitions have included the Fleckenstein Gallery and Steven Scott Gallery in Baltimore, the Vermont Arts Exchange in Bennington and the International Print Center in New York, among others. Bennington Museum is located at 75 Main Street/Route 9. Visit benningtonmuseum.org or call 802-447-1571 for more information.
