Carla Benjamin is exhibiting regionally inspired photo encaustic works April 2022 through June 2022 at the Brainerd UCC, 5th & Juniper Street, Brainerd, MN.

 

Original photos combined with paint containing beeswax, resin and pigment fill the exhibit space with enchanting and intimate views from our region. Many artworks will be available for purchase with a portion of the sales benefitting the Brainerd UCC. A life-long artist, Benjamin has studied photo encaustic technique with MN artist Jodi Reeb and continues a biweekly mentoring engagement with Reeb. Carla Benjamin is a fiscal year 2021 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
