New Website for Rising

Hey all,

I have received several comments regarding artists work being represented on the website, and honestly, between the three of us, sadly the website was the one thing that sorta fell off our map. HOWEVER, we have recently hired a company to manage our website and lonline sales for us. Soon we will not only have a functional website with artists pics, but we will also have an online store which will improve traffic, spread our name, and give world-wide exposure to our artists.

Thank you for being patient with us as we get this all situated. =)

Always moving forward. Always moving up.


Did you miss the Refelctions opening?! You're in luck!


DALLAS, TX – Knox-area RISING Gallery announces a “Friday Night Viewing” of “Reflections,” the premier Dallas exhibit of abstract impressionistic works by artist Benjamin B. Purvis. Beginning at 5 pm on Friday, May 29, the gallery doors will remain open late—so the public can enjoy cocktails while meeting the artist who is becoming known in the art world for his unique style.

Purvis works primarily in oils and is garnering national attention for his textured, landscapes. RISING owner Bryan Wetz says, “We’ve had a lot of interest in this show and artist, and Benjamin Purvis just graciously agreed to let us hang his three latest pieces, which will be on display for the first time that evening. This particular series really highlights Ben’s aptitude in abstract impressionism. I don’t know how to describe it, but he paints vistas that people feel a real affinity for—it’s as if he’s captured something they have seen or known.”

The Reflections show at RISING includes approximately 25 paintings, varying in size from 4”x5” to a 4 ft by 10 ft. triptych. Prices range from $200 to $10,000.
RISING gallery is located at 4631 Insurance Lane in Dallas, just off Knox between Central/75 and McKinney Avenue.

For more information on the show, please contact RISING gallery at 214.634.6262 or via website at

Reflections Opening!

Thanks to all who came out for the Reflections show! We had so much fun enjoying the conversation and authentic cajun food so generously donated by the artist, Ben Purvis' family!

Who all got a bite of that gator tail?!?

Rising gallery had a sucessful night too. Not only did we sell a few pieces for our artists, but with your gracious contributions, we were able to donate a nice sum of money to our friend who was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma. Thank you everyone. It was much appriciated.

As always, if you got any pics, please shoot 'em on over.
