BEVERLY HIGH ARTIST, 'BENDOW,' DISPLAYS AT SNO:LA
Organic frozen yogurt, made from scratch with the best ingredients, combined with a display of original artwork, is the recipe for Sno:la Beverly Hills.
The drawings of Beverly High student/artist, Bendow, created from an array of found, recycled and repurposed materials --including vintage photographs, ATM receipts and box tops-- will open today from 6 to 9 p.m. at 244 N. Beverly Dr. and run through Friday, Aug. 28.
Though open since late, 2007, this is Sno:la's premiere art exhibit. Said store manager Joshua J. Wayne, an artist and musician himself: "We want to showcase local artists and especially excited about Bendow's work because it reflects Sno:la's environment-friendly philosophy. Bendow is young and utilizes materials he's found or are already has on hand."
Sno:la's organic dairy fro-yo flavors are developed in a test kitchen. A seasonal flavor is featured, along with five signature flavors.
Among more than 40 rotating toppings are the bestselling organic gummy bears and locally grown seasonal fruit. Cups and utensils are biodegradable. A portion of profits is donated to Slow Food.
Recognized as a California Arts Scholar, the Beverly High senior (also known as Ben Waldow) has shown his work in galleries since he was 15-years-old, and customizes tennis shoes with his iconic characters. He is interning this summer at Norm Maxwell Gallery in Los Angeles.
