Ben Frank Moss: An Imaginative Life
Members Gallery: February 7–March 6, 2020

AVA is honored to feature the artwork of Ben Frank Moss, late artist and Dartmouth studio art professor, curated by John Stomberg, the Virginia Rice Kelsey 1961s Director, Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College. Moss’s artwork was inspired by the way light, space, and temperature transformed the landscapes of the places he lived, working from memory to create paintings and drawings that convey “a distilled sensation of time.”
