The Green Lion Gallery is proud to highlight the collagraphs and paintings of Portland artist Christine Beneman, with a reception at the Bath Art Walk on August 18.

Chris Beneman is widely recognized as both a painter and a printmaker, and her one-person show at the Green Lion will include both media. Her latest prints are a series of collagraphs inspired by the urban architecture of the High Line in Manhattan, described as “…a pulsing high point” of a recent show at the Greenhut Gallery in Portland. Her collagraphs make a fascinating counterpoint to her acrylic paintings of working waterfronts in Maine.

Originally from the south shore of Boston, Chris graduated from Bates College in Lewiston and has lived and worked in the Portland area ever since.

Her work has been shown most recently at the Institute of Contemporary Art and Greenhut Galleries in Portland. She has also been included in recent exhibitions at the Attleboro Arts Museum and South Shore Art Center in MA, The Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, CT; The NH Institute of Art, Manchester, NH, Washington Printmakers, Washington, DC and the Center for Book Arts in NYC.
