Nick Weber's solo exhibition Eighteen Years of Painting People will be on display at the QF Gallery In East Hampton until December 30. The opening reception will be on Saturday, November 24, at 1 p.m. as part of ArtWalk Hamptons with artist Andrea Cote as the tour leader.
Weber began painting in Amagansett full-time in 2002 after having lived and worked in Chelsea in NYC for many years. Weber said, "...all these people were generous; an old-fashioned thing to pose for a painting -- to pose for a friend. It's a nice way to spend time together."
The works in this exhibition reveals much of his process and a genuine and rigorous exploration of the medium itself. Weber is drawn to the mysterious things about people, especially when a model is with him in his studio. The work, his painting, is his version of their exchange.
Weber was born in NYC in 1971 and received his B.F.A. from Stanford University in 1993. His exhibits include solo and group shows at the late John McWhinnie in New York City and East Hampton, as well as exhibits at Scope Hamptons Art Fair and the Fireplace Project in East Hampton. His portrait commissions include Betsy Johnson and Abercrombie and Fitch.
QF Gallery is located at 98 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. For more information call: 347-324-6619 or visit: www.qfgallery.com
