Ben Bassham

Ben Bassham, Professor Emeritus of Art History at Kent State University, currently maintains two studios, the first in his Kent, Ohio, home, the other in the Basshams's newly discovered second "home," Taos, New Mexico. From each of these workplaces Ben travels extensively to seek his subject matter in two quite different kinds of outdoor environments: the coastlines, hardwood forests, and scenic lakes of the Northeast on the one hand, and the mountains and desert country of the American Southwest on the other.

Ben takes photographs and makes pencil sketches and plein air oil studies that he uses in his studios as the basis for his larger oil paintings. In Kent he works on canvases that depict such traditional American subjects as the rocky Maine coast, Gloucester harbor, New England street scenes, as well as subjects taken from closer to home. Lately, for example, he has turned his eye toward the picturesque old buildings and bridges of Ohio river towns.
In his Taos studio, housed in a traditional adobe dwelling and located just west of dramatic Taos Mountain, Ben develops his paintings of high desert country subjects, including the mission churches of the Rio Grande valley.

The Right at Home Committee is proud to announce the 2011 Featured Artist - Ben Bassham. Ben has donated numerous pieces of art to Right at Home's Art Action which are always well received. Ben and his wife, Carlyn, are loyal supporters of Coleman and its mission.

Ben is an Emeritus Professor of Art History at Kent State University. After offering courses on American art and architecture for 30 years he retired in 1999 to devote his time to his first love, painting. Ben's colorful and realistic views of the landscape reflect his travels to diverse parts of this country as well as Italy, where he has gone many times. He is drawn to the striking New Mexico deserts and mountains and to the coastlines of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
He and his family spend the month of May each year in Taos, New Mexico, a town with a long and distinguished place in the history of American painting. Even today, as Ben likes to say, Taos boasts "more artists than lawyers. Most of Ben's paintings represent Taos and its surroundings. Ben studied art at the University of Arkansas, where he graduated in 1964.

In addition to his artistic production, Ben has written three books, edited two others, and published numerous scholarly articles.
