SANTA MONICA, CA.- The Robert Berman Gallery presents a selection of Ben Talberts paintings, drawings and assemblages from the 1960s. “Luck and Love Revisited” is curated by Talberts close friend and well know curator, Hal Glicksman. Ben Talbert was an accomplished painter and sculptor, who was part of the original circle of beat and alternative Venice artists from the 1960s. Not only was he friends with all of the people from the seminal group, in particular Wallace Berman and Ed Kienholz, but was also exhibited in a major show with both of them at the Pasadena Art Museum as well as a solo show curated by Walter Hopps. Talberts assemblages are still well known and were recently in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum and at the Santa Monica Museum.
