Atenas Gourmet Store Features Art Exhibit
THE computer-generated art of Douglas Benn will be on display through mid-April at Café and Gourmet Store y Más in Atenas, northwest of San José. In this fine selection of eight paintings, the Atenas-based artist demonstrates that he knows how to reduce form to its inherent essence (TT, Oct. 28, 2005). Viewing pieces such as “Red Horse,” “The Cell” or “Flowers in a Vase,” one is immediately touched by the determination and strength of Benn’s artistic language, in which he masters the abstract as well as the representational.
Originally from London, Benn is a professor emeritus of facial radiology at the University of Florida College of Dentistry. He also attended Sir John Cass School of Art at Britain’s London Metropolitan University. His main interests are digital fine art and photography. His work can be seen at www.digitalemulsiongroup.com, and he can be reached at 446-6121.
Installed in a lovingly renovated 150-year-old wooden house, Gourmet Store y Más is a unique combination of café, deli and contemporary art gallery. Sisters Patricia and Olga Arce offer European-style imported treats and Costa Rican made products. The menu reflects Asian, European and Central American influences. Daily specials include soups, sandwiches, salads, main courses and desserts. The deli is on the east side of the central park in Atenas and is open Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call 446-0493 or 391-7480.
