|Ben Frank Moss was born in Philadelphia in 1936. He studied at Whitworth College in
Spokane (B.A., 1959) and Boston University (M.F.A. 1963). Moss, who retired
from teaching at
Dartmouth College in 2008, has studios in both New Hampshire and Washington where he summers.
His work has been included in solo, group, and invitational shows
throughout the United States and abroad since the late 1960's. Moss is represented by several galleries on the
east coast, and his work has been included in shows at the Seders Gallery since 1967.
As a landscape painter, Moss works to establish a sense of
"place" in his work. He is a conscientious observer of light and space as shaped
by time and season and brings these observations to his work. In his small oil on paper
paintings, he uses color, form, and gesture to evoke memories of "place".
