‘Buddha: A Study in Gold,’ Rick Allen

From NJARTS.net

Def Leppard is not currently on tour, but the veteran rock band’s drummer, Rick Allen, will be in New Jersey this weekend. He’ll be making an appearance at the Wentworth Gallery at the Mall at Short Hills, where his artwork is currently on display.

The exhibition is titled “Rick Allen: Angels and Icons,” and it includes 45 mixed media originals featuring his photography, light art and painting. One example, “Buddha: A Study in Gold,” is shown above.

Allen will appear at the gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday; a portion of each sale will go to Project Resiliency’s Warrior Resiliency Program, described on its web site as “An innovative healing program for veterans, active duty military, and their families that address the everyday stress, anxiety and depression experienced by service men and women and their families.”
