“We are honored to present this extraordinary collection in our galleries throughout the country, and to continue our efforts and our tradition of giving back to the men and women who serve our nation so selflessly. Our goal is to bring exposure to Project Resiliency through artistry,” says Christian O’Mahony, principal Wentworth Gallery.
“Music, art and photography have been passions of mine since I was a boy and now I am bringing these artistic expressions to life with paint and canvas,” says Allen. “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 to be the person I am today. 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.” Advertisement
