Art on View at Los Olivos Cafe
September 4th - November 3rd

Marilyn Benson is an artist who takes great pleasure in translating her views and experiences of visual experiences to paintings that offer delight to viewers and collectors of her work.  Her original acrylic paintings will be on exhibit at the Los Olivos Café, from September 4 through November 3.

The artist was British born and educated before locating her family in Santa Maria and pursuing a career outside of the arts. It was a bit later in life that she realized her passion for painting and the possibilities inherent in pursuing that; she is an accomplished self-taught artist who has had numerous local shows and sales at many venues, and received many awards for her work. The image attached, "Gulf Coast Highway 30-A" is the winner of the 2013 Best of the Best Award at the Santa Barbara County Grapes & Grains Festival.

This exhibit is one of a continuing series of shows made possible by the commitment of the Los Olivos Café to showcase local art and artists. The Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley, a nonprofit arts organization with over thirty years of history in the area, coordinates and manages the “art without borders” installation in cooperation with the Café. A portion of art sales benefits AGSYV and these collaborative efforts - a way to keep art alive and accessible in the Santa Ynez Valley.
