William Brayton's multi-media sculpture graces the front lawn of the newly renovated Lord Jeffrey Inn in downtown Amherst for the second edition of the Amherst Biennial. Brayton, an art professor at Hampshire College created the college's sculpture program. This fall, he was also selected by the curators of this highly competitive New England Biennial at the Brattleboro Museum in Vermont. The Brattleboro's Biennial selected only seven artists from our region including New York and Brayton represents Massachusetts in this prestigious exhibit. Seems that these Biennials have similar tastes for talent in the region.
William's sculpture Encounter 2 will move next spring to the rotary at Atkins Corner bringing art to our newly constructed gateway to south Amherst near Hampshire College's campus.
