Tuesday, December 18, 2018 to Monday, February 18, 2019
Tabla Rasa Gallery is pleased to present Tom Bennett: Paintings and Master Prints, a solo exhibition and sale of Tom Bennett’s artwork opening on Sunday, December 9, 2018, from 2:30-5:00 PM, with a wine and cheese reception for the artist.
Tom Bennett’s artwork is recognizable for its impassioned brushwork, bold compositions, and rich subject matter. His work embraces art history, abundant with homages to heroic works, bucking horses and classical nudes.
In addition to his dynamic paintings, Tabla Rasa will feature a series of unframed mono-types for acquisition by both the seasoned and novice collector. Among them are images of figures that seem to breathe with life force, and storms that roil on the horizon. Mono-types, a form of print in which an image is created on a plate and then transferred to paper, is an ideal vehicle for the spontaneity of Mr. Bennett’s drawing talents. The inked plate yields only one “unique” image, not an edition of multiples as in other printmaking techniques.
The exhibition opens on Sunday, December 9, 2018 with a reception from 2:30-5:00 PM, and runs through Saturday, February 9, 2019. *Please note that Tabla Rasa will be closed from January 1 to January 16, 2019.
Concurrent with the exhibition, and in partnership with Welancora Gallery, additional artwork by Mr. Bennett will be at the NU Hotel, 85 Smith Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
Tabla Rasa Gallery is located in the burgeoning art destination of Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The gallery is known for their consistently stunning exhibitions. Within the 4000 square foot turn of the century carriage house, the gallery exhibits primary and secondary market artwork by emerging, mid-career, and established artists, in all media, including painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, print media, digital, film and video.
