Bennett Vadnais (b. 1978) grew up in Washington State. He began pursuing art seriously in his early teens and trained in the classical tradition at such schools as, the Bougie Studio, MN, the Water Street Atelier, NY, and the Art Students League of New York. His work has earned him various awards, including the first scholarship given by the American Society of Classical Realism and a merit scholarship from the Art Students League. In 2003, he was the recipient of both the Edward McDowell and the Xavier Gonzalez travel grants. These grants allowed Vadnais the opportunity to study independently in Europe for nearly two years.
Vadnais has shown work in many of the finest galleries including, John Pence Gallery, San Francisco; KB Gallery, New York, NY, and had a solo exhibition at the Art Students League. He is also exhibiting with Galerie l’oeil du prince, Paris, France. Vadnais works primarily in acrylic. Though he explores a variety of subject matter, his specialty is urban landscape.
Vadnais is an instructor of painting and drawing at the Teaching Studios of Art in Brooklyn and Oyster Bay, and teaches privately in New York City.
