Phoenix Art Gallery

For more than thirty five years Bentley Gallery has been synonymous with contemporary painting and sculpture in the Southwestern United States. The Phoenix art gallery represents mid-career and museum-collected artists from the U.S. and Europe. Throughout the history of the gallery, a diverse range of mediums have been represented. Including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, textiles, installation art, and video.

Bentley Gallery also has a long tradition of offering ancient art and artifacts. Chinese bi and cong from the Neolithic period provide a rare glimpse into China’s history, demonstrating that the power of these beautiful antiquities to co-exist seamlessly with contemporary paintings and sculptures is both stimulating and compelling. All works are authenticated and certified by academic experts.

Paramount to every exhibition at Bentley is the selection of works that are beautiful, that are exquisitely crafted. And that force us to change how we experience the spaces we share with the art.

Chromatic Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: April 9th 2021 to June 26th 2021

Bentley Gallery is pleased to present CHROMATIC, a collection of stunn

All of these works start by stopping us in our tracks. That happens when you see something worth looking at: an object or occurrence that is out of the ordinary, that arrests your attention, piques your curiosity, and makes you want to know more—while experiencing more and more.

The paintings by the five artists in this exhibition do not look like one another. But they do something very similar: reveal how comfortable each of us is with our inability to understand what’s going on right before our eyes. As we respond to their works, we show our true colors, either slowing down, paying attention, and keeping our egos from getting in the way of our perceptions; or pausing briefly and moving on, treating their works as if they’re nothing more than pretty pictures or pleasant decorations, whose attractions are entirely a matter of taste: to be embraced or rejected just because we like them, or not. When you get right down to it, these two reactions are the only options these works give viewers. Dividing us into two groups, the works by these five artists reveal that abstract painting has social consequences, and that it has a lot more to do with who we are as people—in other words, our identities—than is often assumed, even by people who should know better.
