Artpace 2011 alum Frank Benson in Marfa, TX
While in West Texas over Memorial Day, I was fortunate enough to be able to catch up with Frank Benson, who is currently in residence at Chinati Foundation. Since April, he has been further exploring ways of working that he first realized at Artpace: extruding clay.
His Open Studio reception is this evening, June 1, 6-8pm at the Locker Plant in downtown Marfa. If you happen to be in the area, I encourage you to stop by. Without his fellow Fat City musicians, Frank will be performing a solo set on his new guitar axe, a surprising find from Alpine, TX.
