Local Art Seen: Benchmark Tattoo's December Show

Saturday between book signings, my son and I went up to check out the December show at Benchmark Tattoo. If you're in the neighborhood, you should check it out. They're in the new building kitty-corner from Sara's Table/Chester Park Cafe. Since their opening, Kyle and Dane have utilized a portion of their space as an art gallery, with track lighting installed to highlight the works they display.

This month's show features clusters of paintings by each of the various artist's they have represented since opening this summer along with a preview of works by Esther Piszczek, who will be the featured artist in January.

Here's an overview of the work. To fully appreciate it, check it out in person. Like a good poem, art is to be savored in an unhurried manner. Take your time and engage.
