A collection of paintings and sculptures by Malibu local Herb Alpert will be on display from May 4 until June 8 at the Robert Berman Gallery in the Bergamot Station Arts Center in Santa Monica.
In addition to his music career, Alpert has spent decades as an abstract painter and sculptor, and his work has been displayed all over the world, from New York to Berlin. He began painting in 1969 and has experimented with many different styles and materials, including his current medium of choice, organic coffee.
Alpert’s paintings and sculptures have been exhibited at a number of galleries and museums, including the Tennessee State Museum, Pasadena Museum of California Art, Art Cologne and Ace Gallery Beverly Hills, among others.
“When I paint or sculpt I don’t have anything in mind,” Alpert said in a press release. “I don’t have a goal in mind other than form. I’m looking for that form that touches me and when I find it I stop.”
