County's world-famous Bennett Sculpture, Bennett Gallery features a
rich, broad tapestry of artwork that spans many mediums—paintings,
prints, sculpture, glasswork, ceramic art, and jewelry. A unique
defining element of Bennett Gallery's collection is that it is
created by a diverse set of artists whose lives and work have been
connected in a variety of special ways. Most are family. Others are
friends. Still others share a special bond of creativity that has
forged a lasting union. The Gallery also specializes in unique
sculpture recognition awards and monumental sculpture commissions.
