Bennington is a tiny, eight-legged engineer who builds spiral, wheel-shaped webs often found in gardens, fields and forests. They are social, largely non-aggressive, and seldom bite. In 2009, over 107 million orb weaver spiders were found living in a phenomenally huge web that covered four acres of a Baltimore wastewater plant.
Bennington will be on display and for sale at the Oliver Center for the Arts July 28 – September 8, 2017 as part of a group exhibition, “Bugs, Birds and Beasts.”
Cold assembly: 19th century Rockingham style ceramic doorknob, faux fur, leather buttons, vintage jewelry, wire.
