SOCO Gallery invites you to take part in the inaugural Meet The Artist series. Visiting artist Ben Knight is based in Kinston, North Carolina and has been painting for over 20 years. Knight has studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, Cooper Union, and the Art Students League under Larry Poons. Born in Chicago, Knight moved to New York to pursue his art career and eventually settled in Kinston to have more time and space to work. The artist's texturally rich paintings will be on view at SOCO Gallery during Knight's talk.

The Meet The Artist series serves as an opportunity to meet featured artists and discuss artistic practices unique to their artwork.
