Two years ago, we sold the Benini Galleries and Sculpture Ranch to Dr. Greg Sullivan and his wife, Dr. Tracy Poe, and we moved 28 miles north to a ranch south of Marble Falls.
One of the biggest changes this brings to our lives is the time and freedom to begin to accept exhibitions again, as we now have the time to travel. Benini has had 162 one man shows to date, and we have just scheduled two more for 2017.
"Benini: Alla Geometria" opens January 27th at The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas. The show focuses on Benini's work of the 90's in communion with the focus of this museum. His paintings will be in three galleries. The space is not expansive, but the museum and its collection is held in high regard interntionally.
Bill and Dorothy Masterson started the museum in 2002 to house their prestigious collection of MADI art, opening their first show with the "Celebration of Geometric Art" exhibition featuring 80 artists from 20 countries. MADI art is either irregularly shaped or is three dimension. It comes off the wall or out of the frame. Carmelo Arden Quin and others founded the MADI movement in 1946 in Buenos Aires.
The exhibition of Benini's work will focus on his geometric shaped canvases of the 90's. It opens with a reception at 6:00 January 27 and continues for three months.
