2021 Exhibitions


An Art Installation by Rick Levinson

Exhibition Dates: August 18th to October 9th 2021

Sarah Brodsky’s Ring is a kinetic, multimedia installation featuring paintings on free-hanging linens, sculptural assemblage, and works on paper. Through text and visual narrative, guest artist Rick Levinson creates an experiential journey through time, across generations, anchored by the gravitas of one tragic artifact. 

Annual Summer Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: July 2, 2021 – August 13, 2021

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.

More than ever, we all need to get lost in a work of art. In these times of necessary caution, the joy found in a sublime composition, an intuitive mark, a compelling idea, some luscious textures, a satisfying hard edge, or a surprising splash of color is essential to our well being. We’ve been staring at the same four walls for weeks and we can all use a meaningful shift in perspective.


Showed: March 20th, 2020 – May 22th, 2020

Repetition was a two-person show featuring works by Peter Millett and Jeremy Thomas. Both artists are pragmatic in their artistic approach, adhering to a process-based practice that employ the use of recurring forms to create inspired sculptures. Millet constructs distinct structures through an additive process born from intuition and curiosity. Thomas inflates sumptuous metal shapes with pressurized air to bring them into full dimensionality. Each artist explores a geometric language of shape and space, underscored by a high degree of skill and imagination.

Kruger Judith Drawing Ground 7


Showed: January 17th, 2020 – March 14th, 2020

Pigment was a group show featuring works by Louise Blyton, Makoto Fujimura, Raphaëlle Goethals, Judith Kruger and Hiroko Otake. These notable artists delved into the exploration of color not merely as visual sensation, but its physical manifestation as raw pigment and all that it conjures.

The fact that color is not tangible tends to be overlooked. Our eyes detect light with wavelengths that bounces off objects, determining the particular color we see. This selection of artworks engages with the corporeal material that governs what we perceive as color. Whether it’s the application of natural minerals to affirm our relationship with the earth or the vibrancy of pure pigment to accentuate form. Each of these artists utilizes the physical aspect of color to give meaningful insight into our visual faculty and beyond.

2019 Exhibitions

Natural Rhythms

Showed: November 15th, 2019 – January 11th, 2020

Natural Rhythms was a two-person show featuring work by David Kessler and Jim Waid. Both artists have explored the delicate wonder of nature for decades. Their work reveals a heightened sense of our desert environment through skilled mark making and exceptional technique. In these artists’ masterful hands, one does not merely view the landscape; it becomes an experience.

Digital Process

Showed: September 20th – November 9th, 2019

Digital Process, was a two-person show featuring new works by Mike Jacobs and Travis Rice. These two artists highlight the shift occurring in art making today through the use of cutting-edge technology. They explore our post-digital world where instead of exclusively working with paint and canvas they integrate bytes and pixels. Both artists use digital tools to create exquisitely crafted works of art that cut through the visual noise of our everyday.

Annual Summer Show

Showed: July 23 – September 14th, 2019

Bentley Gallery invited art enthusiasts to escape the heat and come into a very cool inviting gallery filled with hot artwork. Artists and artwork were rotated through the course of the show.

In the Absence of Color

Showed: May 17 – July 13th, 2019

In the Absence of Color was a group show that featured works by Bryan David Griffith, Daniel Brice, Robert Kelly, Ricardo Mazal, Udo Nöger, George Thiewes, Jeremy Thomas, Denise Yaghmourian, Judith Foosaner, and Chul Hyun Ahn.

After a successful Color Spectrum show, Bentley Gallery proudly presented In the Absence of Color as a counterpoint. We show works by artists that use a monochrome palette; in doing so we are able to focus on elements such as composition, value, gesture, and form. Whether a hard edge drawn with charcoal, a sprinkling of paint or built up residue from smoke, the restrained use of color is the unifying thesis.

Color Spectrum

Showed: March 14 – May 11th, 2019

Color Spectrum was a group show that featured works by Chul Hyun Ahn, Dion Johnson, and Eric Zammitt. Working across disciplines including fluorescent lights, mirrors, and acrylic paint, the artists in this exhibition expanded our understanding of both the complexity and variant nature of color and how it operates within a two and three-dimensional surface. Making daring visual choices and utilizing a wide array of materials, these artists explored the tensions between content and materiality, symmetry and asymmetry and light and dark.

In, On & Of Paper

Showed: January 18 – March 9th, 2019

Bentley Gallery featured 22 artists who recalibrate the limits of the traditional paper surface, breaking boundaries and challenging preconceived notions of materiality.
