Bender Gallery exhibits some of today's leading contemporary artists as well as emerging artists creating meaningful work. While the main focus of Bender Gallery is sculpture using glass in its creation we also represent highly respected painters and sculptors of other mediums.

Please stop by to see our artists work showcased in a brand new space in the center of downtown Asheville on "Gallery Row on Biltmore". We hope to see you at 29 Biltmore Ave.

My work usually has something to do with nature. It’s what switches me on. Although I grew up in the city, and went to art school in the city, it was the countryside and the bush that I was drawn to. I went from the city to the land to live – to the forest to be exact, in the late 1980’s. This brought me into contact with other species – hundreds of other species. Snakes, epiphytes, insects, fungi, so many species of birds, rainforest trees, and marsupials. The energy of the forest and it’s geology was beckoning me to tap into it as a source of artistic inspiration. There was a lot to try and understand – why does the Satin Bowerbird create sculptures? Why do certain vines grow the way they do? Which are the prey species and which are the predators and how do they interact? What about the mushrooms that glow in the dark? Why the bright colours in parrot species? How did the boulders near the house get there? And how could I translate my fascination into art?
