BOAT SHOW

Please join us in the Drawing Room on Friday, July 5th from 5 - 8pm for the public opening of Steve Snell’s solo exhibition featuring his new works.

Snell is a contemporary painter who is interested in  Americana as it relates to rural small-town life, the exploration of the wild, and the aesthetics of adventuring.

He creates brightly hued monochromatic portraits of wild animals and classically masculine American figures like Burt Reynolds along with clever renderings of the contemporary outdoorsman’s supplies like pretzels and gummy bears. These objects are thrust unnaturally into both demure, watery landscapes and intensely saturated natural backgrounds where organic shapes give way to symmetrical, geometric compositions that elevate these simple objects into something much greater. Through these juxtapositions Snell explores notions of rugged masculinity, the historical adventures of adventurers like Luis and Clark, and what it looks like to be a contemporary outdoorsman. 

The Drawing Room is located at 1903 Wyandotte Street.

The duration of the exhibit is open to the public from 10am-6pm Tuesday through Friday and Noon-5pm on Saturday’s.

Cornucopia: November First Friday

Join us Friday, November 2nd for the opening of Nancy Friedman-Sanchez’s Cornucopia. With an explosion of flora, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez’s exhibition at Weinberger Fine Art’s Drawing Room explores colonialism, identity, and cultural hybridity.

Drawing and painting intricate flowers and lace, she addresses Spanish colonialism, bilingualism, and patriarchal oppression. Her work is strikingly laborious, chillingly ominous, and indulgently lush.

Plops, Kinks and Spills

Brett Reif's sculptures in Plops, Kinks, and Spills draw on themes of the Arte Povera Movement, in which artists find beauty in the ordinary, and combines them with playful contradictions.

"What if you discover that the way you've been living has serious consequences that are unsustainable? What if you have to decide on a course of action to rectify those consequences? Would you have the courage to face tough decisions to change your life? Or would you hold steadfast to the status quo in spite of the consequences?

My latest series of works, Plops, Kinks & Spills, depicts what happens when we try to have it all. The work represents a sculptural exploration using common household tile in forms that depict accidents, obstructions, and impermanence.  Plops, Kinks & Spills, embraces shallow fun and optical joy, as it exposes the hidden underbelly of discontent. These works pose smugly like idols for our time -- objects of joy that belie the perils lurking in the future if our current path continues unhindered."  - Brett Reif:  Plops, Kinks and Spills, 2017

The exhibition is on view from July 7 - August 26.  

The opening reception for Plops, Kinks and Spills is Thursday, July 13th from 5-8pm with an Artist talk beginning at 6:30pm.  

First Friday WFA members events are July 7 & August 4 from 5-8pm
