RICK ALLEN Of DEF LEPPARD To Exhibit Artwork In Boca Raton And Ft. Lauderdale

Wentworth Gallery is honored to present, in its South Florida premiere, Rick Allen's works from his latest collection titled "Rick Allen: Angels And Icons". The extraordinary collection houses originals, limited editions, and mixed media originals.

Rick Allen will be making two very special appearances at these two charitable events at two Wentworth Galleries on Saturday, January 16. A portion of the proceeds from each and every sale will be donated back to Project Resiliency's Warrior Resiliency Program, sponsored by Rick's charity foundation the Raven Drum Foundation, and each purchaser will receive a limited edition hand-signed commemorative Purple Heart piece.

Rick will appear at Wentworth Gallery in Los Olas (954-468-0685) on Saturday, January 16 from noon to 3:00 p.m. and at Wentworth Boca Raton (561-338-0804) from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Admission is free but RSVPs are suggested.

The images captured in "Angels And Icons" "were taken during meaningful times with the family," Rick told myPalmBeachPost. "Some were taken while in Dublin while spending time with my father, who I lost about four years ago. A lot of that conjures up those memories from a time I can't necessarily experience again. It's a great way to just remember all those wonderful times, good things that come about between father and son."

Regarding his inspiration for painting and taking pictures, Allen said: "While I'm out [on tour], I'm constantly planning out what I'd like to do, whether that's planning imagery or taking photographs. Recently I was out taking photos of iconic aspects of London, which is always close to my heart. When I get home, I start painting, in whatever form that comes out. Sometimes it's just an image that I start painting on top of, or some more graphic pieces like flags. There's quite a bit of math involved to get the things worked out and put on canvas. And then sometimes, it's just straight paint."
