Looking for something to do this weekend? Local DC artist and friend of the Old Print Gallery, Philip Bennet, has a one-person exhibit of paintings on view now at the Bethesda Library. Eight acrylic paintings on canvas and two monotypes by Bennet span across the library walls, while four glass cases hold two paintings each. There are also two display cases that hold several plates he used to produce his monotypes (they show residue of colorful oil-based inks) as well as his sketch book, open to a beautiful abstract watercolor.
The exhibit is open 7 days a week, through the month of December, with the exception of December 25th.
Library Hours: Monday-Thursday 9AM-9PM, Friday-Saturday 10AM-6PM, Sunday 12PM-5PM.
Library Address: 7400 Arlington Road, Bethesda, MD 20814
