Beeville — The Beeville Art Museum is featuring an exhibition of works by landscape artist Sylvia Benitez. A nationally acclaimed, multi media artist originally from the East Coast, Benitez became part of a thriving art scene there. Now Benitez, who lives and works in Seguin, has said living in South Texas has had a “giant” effect on her. She described the region as a “strange land to this East Coast girl.”
