JUL 24 2015 – Strata+Sphere – Art Exhibit in Milwaukee

I am opening my “Strata+Sphere” exhibit in two locations in Milwaukee starting July 24 2015.

Click here to see the collection

This series of abstract works, titled “Strata+Sphere” combines a layered painting technique with layered memories of growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The collection is comprised of a mix of oil/cold wax works alongside watercolor/multimedia pieces. Large scale works will be on display at LuLu Cafe & Bar in Bay View and and smaller pieces will be at Juniper 61 in Milwaukee.

Show opening at Juniper 61 in Milwaukee

I am very excited to announce that I will be showing two concurrent shows in Milwaukee starting July 17, 2015 – wow! I just agreed to post at Juniper 61 (6030 W North Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53213) at the same time that I am showing at Lulu’s Café (2265 S Howell Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207). I will be showing a series of abstract works at both shows – large works at Lulu’s and smaller works at Juniper 61 – but all part of the same series of work.

Upcoming show at Lulu’s Café in Milwaukee

Pictured above, working title, “Egg on your face” – 36″ x 48″ x 2″, oil/cold wax on cradled board. 

Very excited to announce an upcoming one-woman show in my home town, Milwaukee. The show opens on July 17, 2015 at Lulu’s Café in Bay View (2265 S Howell Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207). I am developing a series of abstract works specifically for this show, most of which are currently in the works, but in the vein of the work pictured above, “Egg on your face”.

The opening on July 17 coincides with a city-wide art walk.

More info to come.

Red Ball accepted into Blick show

Last week I found out my watercolor “Red Ball” was accepted into the “Winter Wonderland” exhibition – a juried show at Blick’s Loop location. Very exciting!

All-In

One of my pieces was stolen

Ok – I was showing my work – 7 pieces – at a place that for privacy reasons I will not name. The show was over and I had planned to pick up the work on a agreed-upon day. The day before that however, I find out that one of my paintings had been stolen from the show.  !!!

The work that was stolen is pictured above. It’s called All In, and it’s part of my Discarded series. All the works in that series are based on old photographs that I’ve found in junk shops and antique stores.

Of course I was upset and freaked out – but also a little excited. Have I reached a new level in my art career? Work so good it’s worth stealing? Well – I don’t know about all that, but I couldn’t help but feel a little complimented by the act of larceny. Is that weird?

The story ends well, I am happy to report. I got the painting back through the heroic acts of one lovely man who deduced who had stolen the painting and demanded it back on threat of pressing police charges.

My friend, I am forever in your debt. 😀

And for anyone interested in buying a piece with a past – please give me a call!

Galleria refreshed

I have been renting a booth space at the Andersonville Galleria for a couple years now – it is a happy space for me. It was the first place I started showing my work, and not only have I made many sales, but I have also met some great people and been “found” by some people who have helped my career as a Chicago painter along on it’s merry way.

A couple weeks ago I revamped my booth. I put up a fresh coat of paint, and put up all new art (save my portrait samples). I took down florals and put up abstracts. I took down my old landscapes and put up my Absurdity Birdity and Snow Day series. Now in addition to watercolors you’ll also find encaustic paintings and oil/cold wax paintings. All new matted prints are available too.

It’s a whole new booth. If you haven’t visited recently I invite you to come take a new look. It’s the Rochelle Weiner Fine Art booth, on the first floor, in the back.

TIP: If you let me know you’re planning a visit, I can meet you there. And if you buy an original while I am there, I may extend you a courtesy discount!

Opening on Friday May 10

I am one of 10 featured artists at the Deer Path Art League’s show “Art is for the Birds” opening Friday May 10 in Lake Forest, IL.

Art is for the birds

May 10-June 14

Deer Path Art League & Gallery
400 E. Illinois Rd, (2nd Floor)
Lake Forest, IL 60045

Open Monday through Friday
10:00 am- 4:00 pm
Saturdays by appointment only

The elegant gallery space is in a beautiful spot on the edge of downtown Lake Forest, looking out over the treetops. Eighteen of my paintings are on display, encaustic works and monoprints, all featuring our feathered friends. The other artists will be displaying oils, hand made bird cages, mixed media works, jewelry, sculpture, acrylics, and etchings. I got a glimpse yesterday and it promises to be an amazing show!

I’m entirely disappointed I will not be able to attend opening night. However, if anyone else is interested in going that night, it promises to be a fun event. If anyone is interested in going any other time during the run of the show let me know and I’ll do my best to meet you up there!

Following are my paintings that will be in the show:
