Looking for Benjamin DeLanty

During the summer of 2013 I exhibited my work at Found Gallery in Millerton, NY. The gallery (out of business since the Fall of 2013) was owned and managed by Benjamin DeLanty. The gallery sold a number of my paintings for which I’m grateful. However,  Ben DeLanty still owes me money for some of the paintings he sold. And he still has some of my unsold work that he has failed to return to me despite by requests.

I have tried a number of times to contact him via the email address and phone numbers I have for him but he has not returned my emails or calls. To my knowledge, he last lived in both Cornwall, Connecticut and New York City. I simply want to get the money he owes me and have my unsold and/or stolen paintings returned to me.

If you have seen him lately or know his whereabouts, please contact me so I can in turn contact Ben. My email address is provided below. Thank you.

Solo Show at The Norfolk Library - September, 2014

My solo show at the Norfolk Library was a wonderful time to share my work with local friends and neighbors. The show consisted of my newest mixed media art. Learn more about my Norfolk, CT exhibit of abstract mixed media paintings.
