ASTON — Neumann University will host “Abstract Encounters,” an exhibition of artwork by Sandra Benhaim, in the McNichol Gallery from April 4 through May 11.
Benhaim, a native Philadelphian, is a painter who works in oil, mixed media, and collages on canvas, wood panels and paper. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts on a full four-year scholarship, and later a Master of Education from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art.
After working representationally for years, she now creates mainly abstract images, often expressing them in unabashed, exuberant color. She has exhibited nationally from Washington state to New York to Florida and has had 11 solo exhibitions.
The Neumann exhibition contains 18 of her original works.
