Fort Works Art presents the return of artist Ben Willis and his deliciously vibrant new exhibition, “Candy Man.” This family-friendly exhibition/installation invites audiences of all ages to savor in Willis’s one-of-a-kind artistic confections with the same excitement and sense of adventure inspired by Hasbro’s classic board game. “Candy Man” is an immersive experience in pattern and color and designed to satisfy the artistic appetite of each viewer with its mouthwatering collection of bold abstractions.

Together with his own “Candy Man” exhibition, the talented Arizona-based artist, has curated the secondary “Candy Castle” show and populated it with works by a lineup of notable artists. A direct reference to the original board game, “Candy Castle” serves to house a treasure trove of “objects” that have proven especially compelling to Willis over the course of his career.

A third component of this experiential exhibition includes painting by two highly regarded Metroplex artists, Drigo and Brennen Bechtol. The two artists will hand-paint title walls for the “Candy Man” and “Candy Castle” shows in their representative styles. Both dealing with signs in their own respective works, Bechtol and Drigo’s colorful title walls will provide an additional installation element to the already vibrant exhibition.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 9.
