Public invited to meet artist
BENNINGTON — The Bennington Free Library is hosting a free reception on March 16 for local artist Barbara Ackerman whose work will be displayed at the library as the latest installation in the “WallWorks” series.
The newest installation of “WallWorks: Art at the Library” will feature prints by Ackerman. The public is invited to meet her and enjoy light refreshments at an opening reception on Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the reference area of the library.
Ackerman is a Bennington native who teaches digital art at Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington. Her “Advanced Graphics Design” students have contributed designs for the library’s limited edition mugs for the past two years and have designed this year’s edition as well.
Ackerman described the exhibit pieces as a “series of monoprints in acrylic and ink and is the result of a reflective and exhilarating set of summer residencies.
“The creative process continues to awe my sensibilities and the natural world and perhaps the spiritual, to provide mysteries, beauty and contradictions to explore,” she said.
