ART SALE, at Southwold Library

– 15:00 on Monday, 27th May 2024
Organised by: Friends of Southwold Library
Venue: Southwold Library, Hospital Hub, Field Stile Road,Southwold IP18 6LD link
Featuring works by the late Southwold artist Brian Bennett, a self-taught artist, who became a serious painter in his mid-thirties. He exhibited widely in London and in Suffolk. Brian was a long-serving member of the Southwold Art Circle.
His earlier paintings were representational but in Suffolk he became interested in exploring surface textures, cracked wood, rusting metal, peeling paint, on details of boats, doors, barns, fishing sheds and the like. This led in turn to the more abstract imagery of his later work. Sale is in aid of the Friends of Southwold Library.
