Bennett Sculpture Carmel consists of artwork by an extremely accomplished family of artists. Bob and Tom Bennett, created, produced and sold thousands of their bronze sculptures, for over three decades. In the 80s, the Bennett’s opened more than twenty Bennett Sculpture Galleries across the country and currently have over 50,000 collectors from around the world.
The late 90′s saw the closing of the Bennett Foundry in Northern California and the Bennett Sculpture galleries soon followed. Sadly, in 2003 Bob Bennett passed away. In August 2012, Debi Bennett (Bob’s wife of 25 years) along with her new partner, Bill Nordvik, decided Bennett Sculpture should return to its place in the art world and back into the hearts of Bennett Collectors. The original Bennett Sculpture Carmel sign was located, touched up, and hung above the now re-opened doors in the same Carmel location from 30 years ago. Response from Bennett Sculpture collectors and fans has been overwhelmingly positive. New collectors and fans have been adding up quickly, as well.
Tom’s daughter, Terrie Bennett, started sculpting as a young girl in the Bennett Foundry, focusing on nature and marine life sculpture. She has owned and operated her own galleries in Malibu, California, and Taos, New Mexico. Terrie is now working to create several new sculpture designs for the Carmel gallery.
Bob’s daughter, Ashley Bennett-Stoddard, has been painting and sculpting for most of her young adult life. Ashley adds bright color to the mix and her strong spirit shows within her paintings. Since her father’s death, she has become even more determined to carry on the family legacy.
