Last month the University had a lovely art show featuring the drawings of Grace Benedict. Many types of artists have shows in the Dunn Art Gallery, and I enjoy seeing so many different styles of work, but it was particularly nice to see drawings in the gallery again.


Most of Benedict’s drawings are self-portraits, incorporating natural elements and clean geometric design elements. I find this combination to be very pleasing to my sense of style. I could easily see one of her pieces gracing the walls of my house one day.

Just not any of the angel statues. I’m seen one too many episodes of Dr. Who to be comfortable with an angel statue looks back at me while I sleep- even if they are exquisitely rendered.

Do you have the luxury of attending local art shows in your area? What is your favorite medium of art? Do you have a favorite artist?

    Ha ha ha! YES about those angel pics. Would you believe my husband looks JUST like that Dr. Who as well? Especially when he was slightly younger. He’s getting his hair chopped shorter today (finally) so that will really make him look alike. That was also an awesome episode. We are slowly making our way through them all. Love the artists style you featured here. Very nice!

      Thanks for stopping by Jessica! I hope you continue to enjoy the episodes going forward. My husband has had difficulty connecting with Doctor #12. I think his personality is a little too salty for my husband’s tastes. It makes the episodes a bit too dark for my husband who’s favorite episode is Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.
