Four local artists are to be featured in a Benton museum’s new exhibit. See the works of a sculptor, a photographer and two painters.
Come to the reception and opening on Thursday, October 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Gann Museum of Saline County at 218 S. Market Street in historic downtown Benton. The exhibit will stay through the end of 2019.
The display includes impressionist oils from Matt Coburn, historic scenes from Dianne Roberts, functional art pottery from Ben Edwards, and award-winning nature photography from Cameron Holt.
Coburn is well-known for his broad strokes in depictions of roosters and American flags. Roberts created the painting that was enlarged to become a mural on the Bell Building in downtown Benton. Edwards’ work is featured in the Kesher Collection at the State University of New York. Holt’s photography has been used by Smithsonian Magazine.
Entrance to the Gann Museum is free. They are open Thursdays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Group tours are available by appointment on Mondays through Wednesdays.
