A new exhibit of paintings by local artist Marilyn Benson is on display at Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café through Sept. 7. The artist notes that the show encompasses all the subjects she loves to paint, including Central Coast scenery and iconic landscapes, bikes and boats.
Benson is British born and educated. She has been in the area for a significant time and has shown and sold her art locally for many years. She has collectors worldwide and is the recipient of many arts awards in juried shows and events.
This exhibit is one of a continuing series of shows made possible by the commitment of the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café to showcase local art and artists. Santa Ynez Valley Art Association, a nonprofit arts organization with over 30 years of history in the area, coordinates and manages the “art without borders” installation in cooperation with the café.
