Join us this Saturday, July 10th, at bG Gallery for the opening reception of the special limited-time exhibition Frank Paletta: Radical Acceptance.
Frank Paletta is a Los Angeles-based artist, spinal cord injury survivor, and ambulatory paraplegic. His works in oil contemplate the complexities of learning to live wholly within the limitations of his physical form while adapting to the ambiguous and often contradictory thoughts and emotions that come with working as a disabled artist in America.
Over the years, Frank has drawn deeply on the events of his personal life for inspiration, finding the sheer physicality of the painting process both therapeutic and essential to the development of his creative vision. His paintings explore personal identity, movement, energy, and the collective impulse to transform the darkest parts of the human experience into something palpable. From the proceeds of this exhibition, he aims to gain a new studio to teach others to paint.
Where: bG Gallery, Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave #A2, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 10th, 7-10 p.m.
Exhibition Dates: July 8th – July 19th, 2021
