LINDA BENTON MCCLOSKEY
After changing careers and researching my family's history, I discovered that Thomas Hart Benton (an American Regionalist Painter 1889-1975) was my great-uncle. Being a member of local art groups and I teach experimental water media, collage, abstract design, pastel, cold wax & oil, abstract landscapes and encaustic. I also teach on patreon.com.
Also am a signature member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Philadelphia Watercolor Society and Baltimore Watercolor Society, plus have earned my nautilus status in the International Society of Experimental Artists. I have exhibited in numerous national and international juried shows, universities, cultural centers, galleries, and museums. Most of my works are in private collections and universities.
I am married and have 5 children and 8 grandchildren and live near Harrisburg, PA.
