Acadia Artist-in-Residence, Ben Matthews!
Ben Matthews is a fine artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1995 and has exhibited his work locally and nationally since 1998. His recent work explores fictitious field studies that depict mysterious adaptations and inventions from this not-quite time or place based on current environmental concerns and social topics.
His drawings combine visual puns and irony with social messages. His exploration into a unique, fantastical and sometimes unsettling universe encourages viewers to think about current concerns by presenting a glimpse at futuristic flora, fauna and man made inventions that have resulted from our impact on the world.
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public!
