First Friday: The Enduring Reasons Why

October 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

This year, Pentimenti Gallery is exceptionally proud and excited to announce that we will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary!

Throughout all of its years, Pentimenti Gallery has time and again been at the very forefront of providing challenging and visually striking, content-driven contemporary artwork. From modest beginnings, we have continued to garner national recognition through maintaining our commitment to process based work and elaborate craftsmanship. While the exhibition program continues to expand its horizons to encompass abstract and figurative aesthetics to avant-garde works created from unconventional materials, we have already began to cement a significant statement within the history of art.

In honor of this, we are presenting a special exhibition inspired by this significant landmark. The Enduring Reasons Why invites you to take a stroll down memory lane with us by presenting new works from each of our esteemed artists alongside some of their “personally significant artifacts” from 25 years ago. These artifacts show the development of who they are as an artist now, and include things such as a piece of artwork created during that time, mementoes or objects they found artistically inspirational, or things that looking back they feel represents them as a person back then.

The artists in this show are not simply represented by the gallery, but are committed to supporting the program as a whole. It is this support, along with notions of passion, discovery, vision, belief, commitment, admiration, encouragement, personality, opportunity, and pursuit that have made the gallery what it is today.

This exhibition is a way of showing the gratitude and respect we have for each of the wonderful people that have been integral in keeping Pentimenti Gallery going strong.
