Recently, The Books Magazine interviewed artist and illustrator Aaron Bennett. Since the interview Bennett has been featured in two NY art shows in Cortland and Binghamton.
Bennett’s recent art show at a Binghamton local restaurant The Whole in the Wall on the First Friday Art Walk earlier this month has been successful. For those who have not yet viewed the pieces, please note that the show continues for the month of September.
New art pieces will also be mounted for September’s display, including recent illustrations done for the new children’s book series The Secrets of Aunt Norah’s House by Dawnette Blackwood-Rhoomes. The book is the first in the series of children’s mystery books by the author, to encourage elementary kids to understand the clues, solve the science and math mysteries, and arrive at an answer to find the big treasure hidden in the stories.
Bennett’s love for art has been nurtured since childhood, and he has credited his inspiration to the artworks of some famous artists and illustrators. In his interview, Bennett states:
I want a creative career that speaks life into other people’s lives. I want and need purpose. Children’s books can shine a light of observation on the good things in life and I want to be a part of that.
