This new and extraordinary collection houses originals, limited editions, the painted drum series, mixed media originals, plus for the first time - works on Metal which is a new medium for the Artist. Also on view will be fan favorites the “Legends Series,” featuring portraits of Charlie Watts, Eddie Van Halen, Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash and his renowned “Wings of Hope” series. A portion of each sale will benefit his Project Resiliency where for over a dozen years Allen and his wife Lauren Monroe have worked passionately with veterans from Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan. Allen and Wentworth Galleries will donate a portion of each and every acquisition to benefit the Foundation. “Painting has been a passion of mine for quite a while and I was inspired to branch out and try some new techniques. One that I particularly enjoyed was working with metal as a medium. I’m really proud of how these new works turned out and I can’t wait to share them at the upcoming Wentworth Gallery Shows in Florida.”


SAINT CHARLIE - BY RICK ALLEN

Speaking about his favorite pieces, “Saint Charlie,” Allen remarked, “Losing Charlie is the end of an era… if it wasn’t for Charlie I wouldn’t be a drummer… very sweet man who I had the honor of meeting.” “I am honored to host Rick and his art at my galleries. His work continues to evolve and not only represents his own story of perseverance, resiliency and the human spirit but is also a beacon of hope for others.” - Christian O’Mahony, Principal Wentworth Gallery ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“Music, Art and Photography have been passions of mine since I was a boy. My life has been a journey of transformation and my art is a reflection of the many facets of dreams and perceptions that have shaped me. Each piece has a story and a connection to my life from my roots in England, my life changing car accident, journey to America, travels around the globe and to my deep connection to Wounded Warriors and their struggle to heal. The collection intends to express messages of hope, transcendence and the human condition." - Rick Allen
