Art Exhibits

  1. River Compositions by Lynn Benson

    May 5, 2018, 12:00 PM - July 15, 2018, 5:00 PM @ The Volland Store Gallery

    In 1969, the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio, burst into flames because sparks fell on oil-covered debris floating on its surface. News of the burning river captured artist Lynn Benson’s imagination and inspired her to study how human activity affects a vitally important resource: water. In a range of mediums, Benson represents bodies of water implicated in environmental and political struggles.
