For a smaller venue stuck in a rural setting, the Bennington CA is really a gem, nicely polished. This OPA annual show is well displayed in several of their galleries, and other than a few hanging miscues, done very nicely. I can say that the varied room lends itself well to breaking up the show to avoid monotony, and lighting in most cases is well used to enhance color and value of the works. A few dead zones that perhaps couldn't be avoided and a few pieces hung either too low for the lighting used or next to works that just clashed, but overall a show over 200 pieces is bound to have a couple distractions. I especially loved several of the near impressionistic works, and the jury panel should be commended for pulling a wide breadth of work type and theme. It's not all still life, florals, and portraits! Bravo! BCA staff are very friendly and helpful, so give them kudos for opening on a hot Monday morning right on time. The other exhibits include the Covered Bridge Museum, Native American art, animal art and carvings, and a small works exhibit that was very enjoyable itself!
