Art Exhibit: Darlene Garstecki and Brenda Bennett

May 1 - June 30 2020

“Two Artists – Two Mediums”
May 1 -June 30

A two-month dual exhibit of fiber art by Garstecki as well as oils and acrylics by Bennett.

Darlene Garstecki is an award-winning contemporary fiber art designer from Hot Springs Village. Her fiber art is a result of her passion for nature, travel and photography. She incorporates her photographs into realistic fiber art for the home or business using bright, clear hues and thread/bead embellishments to enhance each piece to add texture and depth.

Brenda Bennett is an award-winning oil and acrylic painter. Ms. Bennett’s canvases depict a variety of subjects, including landscapes and wildlife. She does not gravitate toward one type of subject matter in particular though, and explains that her paintings choose her. “In essence, my day-to-day experiences dictate my work,” she explains.

Exhibits in the Magnolia Room are free and open to the public during regular business hours of 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily. A portion of the sale of any work benefits Garvan Woodland Gardens.
