Martin Bentham RWA: Latest Paintings

12th May - 30th June

The Bishop's Palace in Wells is delighted to be welcoming artist Martin Bentham to the Exhibition Room with a collection of his latest paintings.

Martin Bentham RWA: Latest Paintings

Martin last appeared at the Palace in 2014 with an extremely successful show and art fans from around Somerset are eagerly awaiting his new collection. He has held successful biennial one man shows since 1993 and has exhibited at numerous, notable selected exhibitions including the RA and the Royal West of England Academy (RWA).

Martin Bentham has been a full time professional artist painter since graduating from Exeter College of Art & Design in 1985. Primarily a figurative painter, Martin prefers to work directly from his chosen subjects, which are mostly derived from the people and landscape of the Mendip Hills, where he lives. He also paints still life.
Martin has held successful biennial one man shows since 1993 and has exhibited at numerous, notable selected exhibitions including the RA and the Royal West of England Academy (RWA). He was awarded the 'Daler Rowney Oil Painting Prize' in 2007 at the RWA Autumn Exhibition and won 1st and 2nd Prize in the 'Viewer's Choice Award' at the 2008 Exhibition.

Martin was elected an Academician of the RWA in January 2009 and since then he has had two solo exhibitions there: July-August 2010 and in October 2012.

Martin Bentham's paintings & drawings are in many private collections throughout the world and the works from his new exhibition will be available to purchase.
