"Elephant Trike": Paintings by Geoff Benzing

Olive Gallery and Art Supply

Lawrence artist Geoff Benzing thinks animals look good with wheels. So he sometimes paints them that way. Thus the name of his exhibition, "Elephant Trike," which opens Saturday and remains on view through June at Olive Gallery and Art Supply, 15 E. Eighth St. A reception will be from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, with musical guest Matt Rice. "This show is my attempt to pack as many colors and cute characters into one space as possible," Benzing says. "I want each piece to look like a page from a children's picture book." Benzing studied art at Wichita State University and now paints houses, murals and custom portraits. He plans to write and illustrate children's books as well.
