Arty Girl: Cuban Artists at Bentley Gallery

By Lilia Menconi

Scottsdale ARTWALK is getting all up in some international shit this Thursday.

I already wrote about Lisa Sette's Chinese art show. And just across Marshall Way, you can see two amazing Cuban artists at Bentley Gallery.

Sombra hacia el sur by Acosta.

Gustavo Acosta's "Temporary Current" is a collection of his urban landscape paintings. His aerial perspective of hungry man-made structures are based on images taken from mass media. Acosta explores the modern, clustered landscape common throughout the world.

Relaciones by Bedia.

José Bedia's show concentrates on cultural ties as well, but on a person to person scale. Known for using petroglyphic imagery and text combined with imagery of human and animal, Bedia takes a focused view on the instinctual aspects of humanity, common to us all.

Works by both artists will be on display until November 28th at Bentley Gallery, 4161 N. Marshall Way in Scottsdale. Call 480-946-6060 or visit
