Trexler Hall

Nolan P. Benner, Jr. (1922-1998) was best known for painting landscapes with a bold and vibrant palette. Born and raised in the Lehigh Valley, this locale remained a major source for Benner’s paintings throughout his life. As a member of the Lehigh Art Alliance and Bethlehem Palette Club, Benner made a lifelong commitment to the local arts community.

In addition to exhibiting widely, he and his family have also been longtime supporters of the Allentown Art Museum of the Lehigh Valley. Continuing in that tradition, Benner’s widow, Barbara Benner generously donated the remainder of his paintings and watercolors for sale in the Museum’s Trexler Hall. All proceeds to benefit the Allentown Art Museum of The Lehigh Valley.
