Benny Alba writes of her work: “I create art aiming to communicate with viewers of the future as well as viewers of today. The combination of colors, metallics and messages are contemporary American. The metallic expanse glows and shines, playing with the ambient light.”
Alba is primarily self-taught, having grown up in an artistic family. In 2004 she attended the Penland Arts and Crafts School, Penland, North Carolina. Alba’s paintings are included in many public collections, including the Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama; Las Vegas Art Museum, Nevada; Mint Museum, Charlotte, North Carolina; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; and the Tyler Museum of Art, Texas.
