Murphy uses old photographs as the basis of her nostalgic paintings. Presented on a rich and textured background, these figures are disconnected from their original context by design and recreated as icons for the viewer’s personal connection.

Patina is Bennett’s medium of choice. It’s a centuries-old process that has been handed down from one generation of artists to the next. Using silicon bronze plate, Bennett applies iron, silver, copper, and other chemical compound to achieve rich color before fire infuses the chemicals onto the bronze. Having spent 20 years controlling and developing his process, Bennett says he seeks to create images that capture his inner workings through the subjects of trees, moonlight and solitary pathways.

Exhibit III will be on display through Aug. 1. For more information, visit or call 920.854.4343.
