Join us for the Opening Party of the 15th Annual North Bennington Art Park July 21st from 4 pm. to 8pm. The event is free and open to the public. There will be music, refreshments and especially the best Art exhibition in New England this summer.

The Art Park is located on the grounds around the North Bennington Post Office and Train Station including Welling Town House and the Aldrich property next door.

This year we are exhibiting sculpture, painting, photography and mixed media artwork from 65 local and regional artists.  The Art Park is an invitational exhibition and each artist selects his or her entry. All the artists invited have professional experience and many are nationally known.
There will be a performance piece by Glenn Campbell of West Rutland and local sculptor Fred Brownstein who joins Glenn to create an event combining poured metal and flaming figurative sculpture. Artists returning to exhibit outdoor sculpture include Willard Boepple,  Joe Chichirillo, Matthew Perry, and sculptors from Salem Art Works .  The Train Station Gallery will be open this year only through August 19th.. Gallery hours will be Thursdays and Fridays 4pm to 7 pm. Saturdays from 1pm. and Sundays 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  We encourage everyone to visit the Galley exhibition that will contain works by Pat Adams, Kevin Bubriski, Susie Cronin, Ann Pibal, Leslie Parke, John Recco, Barbara Sussman , and Elaine Witten among the 37 entries exhibited.
