Helpful People: Paintings by Ben Pines
Untitled Light’s November showcase will feature portrait paintings by Ben Pines. The title of the show Helpful People comes from a feng shui chart that links colors, natural and supernatural, and social elements. The color gray, of which Ben often uses in his paintings, is linked with helpful people and heaven.
Friday, November 3
