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.

Renowned Brooklyn artist, Simon Dinnerstein has had eighteen one-man exhibitions and has received a Fulbright Grant to Germany and a Rome Prize to work in Italy at the American Academy in Rome. Dinnerstein has been the subject of two monographs on his work (University of Arkansas Press and Hudson Hills Press).

A third book is planned for early 2011 by Milkweed Editions (Minneapolis).This book will be in the form of an anthology of writing focusing on a major painting of his, The Fulbright Triptych. It will consist of 42 essays using his painting as a prism or point of meditation. The Triptych, which is 14 feet in width, can be viewed at: New York exhibits of the triptych are being planned to coincide with the publication of this book in 2011.
The works in this exhibition demonstrate his mastery at balancing drama and subtlety, with the seductive finesse that followers of his work will recognize as his unique signature.

Among the other artists exhibiting in ABOUT FACE are Jeannine Bardo, Stephen Basso, Anita Giraldo, Clarity Haynes, Kiseok Kim, Alexandra Limpert, Alex Pimienta, David Prifti, Stuart Shedletsky, and Larry Siegel. Original contemporary paintings, photographs, sculptures and works on paper will be on display.

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.
