Ben Woodeson Exhibition

Location: The Belfry, 406 Canisteo St, Hornell, NY 14843
Cost to Attend: Free

The Belfry is excited to present an exhibition of Ben Woodeson’s sculpture completed during his tenure as Theodore Randall International Chair at Alfred University. Artist Ben Woodeson makes ephemeral sculptures that deliberately set out to confront both viewer and exhibiting institution. The works are frequently fragile, unstable and kinetic.

The Belfry is a new exhibition venue in Hornell located in the historic Spencer Methodist Church. Turner Teaching Fellow Ashley Lyon and co-director Ian McMahon have been renovating the space into a non-profit platform for the arts. They are pleased to host Ben Woodson for the debut exhibition. Parking and shuttles will be available for transportation from the Alfred School of Art and Design Sculpture Exhibition at the Hornell Community Arts Center to the Belfry during opening hours.
