Main Street Vero Beach presents artist Carol Bennett through December

VERO BEACH – Main Street Vero Beach presents Carol Bennett as the December artist of the month at our MSVB Welcome Center located at 2036 14th Ave. Working with a variety of mediums, Carol produces landscapes, figure drawings, and delightful multiples of  people and animals.

Color is of major importance in her work which can be amusing, contemplative, or serve to deliver a jolt. It is anything but ordinary. Carol’s art was selected to be exhibited in the 2013 A.E. Backus Gallery “Best of the Best” Art Show, the “100 percent Florida 2014” presentation at the 5th Avenue Gallery in Melbourne, Art Mundo’s “Keep Fort Pierce Funky” exhibit 2014, and the ABC Artist of the Month Program.

Her entry in the 2013 Indian River County Courthouse juried exhibit won the “Best in Show” Award. Her work was regularly shown at Lighthouse Art and Framing in Vero Beach and has also been shown at the Seascapes Gallery in Melbourne.

Her painting, “Blue Seascape” received the First Place award at Gallery 14’s “Our Beautiful Waters” 2014 exhibit. Carol was selected by Orange Avenue Studios to participate in the “Treasure Coast Top 50 Artists” exhibition in April, 2015. Carol’s watercolor, “A Small Crowd,” was selected for entry to the Backus Gallery’s 2015 “Best of the Best” exhibition where it won First Prize, and her acrylic, “City Lights,” received an Award of Merit at its Spring 2017 show.
