When We Met—Benjamin Ewing at One Grand Gallery

When We Met opens at One Grand Gallery on May 26th, welcoming painter and sculptor Benjamin Ewing for his first exhibition with the gallery. This new body of work marries Ewing’s sculptural practice to his polished oil paintings for an oeuvre that contemplates origin, relativity, and interconnectedness. In consideration of how the artist ultimately comes to be removed from their final work, so does When We Met invite viewers to extend their own language to these pieces and contextualize them within a familiar understanding. Abstract, hand-chiseled figures and soft planar undulations rendered in oil morph into recognizable figures such as two hands coming together, or a breathtaking horizon at the sun’s moment of departure. The suite of works freezes time with the desire to encourage kinship, both internal and external. 


Please join us for the opening reception for When We Met,  May 26th from 6-10pm. External programming hosted in tandem with this exhibition will be announced via social channels.
