The Greg Thompson Fine Art Gallery hosted a private "Reception with Benini" on Thursday, March 17 from 6p.m.-8p.m. at 429 Main Street in North Little Rock.

This event is part of the festivities for his exhibition, Benini: The Painter's Journey, opening Friday, March 18.

Arkansas Free Press is pleased to bring exclusive coverage from his visit to North Little Rock this week.

The Greg Thompson Fine Art Gallery, located on the second floor of an historic building built in 1895, was first known as the Faucette Building. Thompson spent several months designing his new space to look, feel and operate with the integrity of similar galleries in New York, Paris and Chicago.

With 18-foot ceilings, original hard wood floors, and clean white walls, Thompson says, “There is nothing like it in the state of Arkansas.  It is quickly becoming a destination gallery for the South.”

Thompson was one of several prominent guests in attendence tonight.
