Carla Benjamin exhibited a regionally inspired photo encaustic works from April 2022 through April 2023 and again with original pieces on display from January 2024 to present.


About Carla's encaustic artwork: Original photos combined with paint containing beeswax, resin and pigment portray 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.
