Benjamin Lander

Ben's passion for both art and nature was fstered early on through many summers at camp in upstate New York.  He earned his MGA in sculpture and drawing in 1977 and then embarked on consecutive careers in cabinetry, commercial illustration, and exhibit design.  Recently, Ben has been returning to his roots and learning new skills through classes with the Minnesota School of Botanical Art.  This is Ben's third GRC annual exhibit and he has exhibited in several MSBA shows.  His work is also currently on exhibit in the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators' Fourth Coast Illuminated in Kalamazoo, MI.  Ben is the 2014 President of the Great River Chapter.
