Featured Artist in 2021

Maureen Bennett is a visual artist who works in graphite, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, oils, mixed media and photography.  She is inspired by nature, holding time in the present to all the effects of the natural world over decades, if not hundreds of years.  Change and impermanence are themes that permeate her art.  Maureen's art reflects the intersection of drawing and painting, photography and computer.

As a community activist, Maureen has been awarded numerous grants to support art as a transformative force for social change.  She designs and implements creativity workshops about education, earth awareness, wellness, nonviolence and peace.  Maureen created the global traveling art project, Peace By Piece, which is ongoing.  The project involves thousands of participants creating canvases and writings that express personal statements about peace.  She is the recipient of the NYC Circle of Mercy Award.
