Ben Perini: Passion Play

Ben Perini: The Black and White Show
February 4 - 28, 2015

Open for Gallery Hop, Friday, February 6, 7 – 10 pm
Reception Sunday, February 8, 2 – 4 pm

Artworks Gallery presents “The Black & White Show” featuring the art of Ben Perini. The exhibit is an exciting display of the expressiveness of art within the limitations of Black & White - and the inventive ways artists explore its possibilities. All Gallery Member Artists exhibiting this month will show their brilliant color-free work.

Ben Perini, Brooklyn-born artist now living in Winston-Salem, refers to his larger-than-life charcoal drawings as visual poetry. Consisting of thought provoking imagery with the portrait as a central subject, these works are a narrative commentary on the human story. The drawings are dramatic in their visual quality — with detailed rendering, layered symbolism, and hidden imagery that all propels the themes. Equally dramatic is the scale of the art which adds a theatrical element — these are large works where the intent is to create a stage for the art and the viewer to inhabit together. The exhibit will showcase Perini’s “The Passion Play” - one of the largest drawing on paper in North Carolina.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during gallery hours.
