Award-winning artist, Jennifer Benn will present a slide lecture in room A219, Paul Creative Arts Center, on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at noon.

The lecture will include discussion of her painting, U.N. Finished Aluminum Phantom F4, recipient of the Friel Award for Originality in the New Hampshire Art Association 59th Annual Exhibition, currently on view. The lecture, offered as part of The Art Gallery’s weekly series of ArtBreak programs, is free and open to the public.

Benn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UNH in 1990 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University in 1994. She has studied extensively in Italy, Ireland, and Spain. Most recently, Benn has served as director for Art Study Abroad and as a professor of studio art at Chester College of New England.

Benn’s work reflects an interest in technology and science, leading to a visual exploration of light, color, and composition. She examines the ordered world of machines and re-interprets their complex technology into the language of art. Benn’s unique paintings have been included in numerous regional solo and group exhibitions and she has received several awards, honors, and scholarships. Benn received The Currier Gallery of Art Award in 1994 and the Ezekiel A. Straw Memorial Award in 2004 for works included in the New Hampshire Art Association annual juried exhibitions.
