Local artists Dexter Benedict and his wife, Faith, will host an open house at their Penn Yan studio, Fire Works Foundry, tomorrow, Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Both Dexter, professor emeritus at Keuka College, and Faith, a member of the Keuka College Class of 1981, will have their studio spaces open. Attendees will be able to tour the spaces, talk with Dexter and Faith, and view their art. In addition, art will be for sale.
Among the works on view will be Dexter's latest project: bronze sculptures of 19th-century western New York abolitionists William Seward and Harriet Tubman. The sculptures are being shipped to Schenectady next week.
The studio is located at 1554 Baker Road, Penn Yan, N.Y. 14527.
