His images and written insights have been published in a number of books and magazines both in the United States and in England. Hendershot has had numerous solo gallery shows and is represented by several galleries in Southeastern Pennsylvania. He is a decorated member of The American Watercolor Society, The National Watercolor Society, The Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, The Philadelphia Water Color Society, and The International Society of Acrylic Painters. Currently, he and his wife maintain a studio in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania.
