Tabla Rasa Gallery Presents About Face
Tabla Rasa Gallery is a wonderful venue that has hosted amazing shows over the last few years. The owners are friendly and enthusiastic about their space. The new show, opening on November 4th, features artists' works focusing on the human face. The works featured on the website and in the email are arresting. I'm looking forward to checking it out. The artists' reception is Wednesday at 5:30 PM, and the gallery is open to the public Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1 PM to 5 PM.

Opening at Tabla Rasa Gallery on Wednesday, November 4th, ABOUT FACE offers selections curated to turn around the viewer's expectations of the human face in art. Whether obscured, distorted, psychologically askew, or oversize in scale, none of the works resemble traditional portraiture.
Original contemporary paintings, photographs, sculptures and works on paper will be on display. Among the artists exhibiting in ABOUT FACE are Jeannine Bardo, Stephen Basso, Simon Dinnerstein, Anita Giraldo, Clarity Haynes, Kiseok Kim, Alexandra Limpert, Alex Pimienta, David Prifti, Stuart Shedletsky, and Larry Siegel.
The gallery is located two "D" or "N" express subway stops from Manhattan to the 36th Street Station plus one "R" stop to 45th Street.
Ample street parking is available.
Tabla Rasa Gallery is free and open to the public. There will be an artists’ reception on Wednesday, November 4th, from 5:30 until 8:30 pm. General gallery hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 1:00 until 5:00 pm. ABOUT FACE remains on view through January 23, 2010.
