Ben Fenske, one of the most original and prolific painters in the Grenning Gallery, stands out for his loose and expressionist brushwork – yet his classical training is evident in the accuracy of his draftsmanship and tones. Although his landscapes are hugely popular, it is actually his figurative work that resonates. In 2016, Fenske was selected from a pool of over 2,500 submissions to exhibit in the National Portrait Gallery’s annual BP Portrait Award Exhibition. 
Grenning Gallery, 17 Washington Street, P.O. Box 3049, Sag Harbor, NY 11963
