Please join us this Friday, April 12th from 6-8pm for the closing reception of Ben Barretto's SELF HELP. The gallery will be open Tuesday through Friday from 12pm to 6pm. Come check out Barretto's U.S. solo debut before it comes down.
We've received some fantastic press about this show including Leora Lutz's review for SFAQ which you can see here. See excerpt below.
"By using some now-traditional/avant-garde tropes of painting mixed with traditional and modern craft practices, Barretto is crossing out antiquated ways of considering painting while at the same time reiterating some practices that are recognizable among post-modern circles. The work has a clumsiness to it that translates as awkwardly perfect. At the core of his practice-assortment is a successful exploration with which Barretto actually needs no help." -Leora Lutz (SFAQ)
Additionally, The Popular Workshop was pleased to have received a write-up in The New York Times' T Magazine a couple of weeks ago which you can see here.
