Jason Weaver: Works on Paper, an exhibition showing a range of work from academic figure studies to people in contemporary street settings, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from July 6-27, 2018. A free closing reception to meet the artist will be held on Friday, July 27 from 5-7 p.m.
Weaver’s main subject matter is the human form and he typically works in charcoal, chalk or graphite on paper.
Weaver says, “I enjoy the challenge of capturing a mood. The overall goal is to bring the viewer in, and even if for a moment, relate it to the subject. The human form has a sort of organic symmetry that is difficult to capture but is rewarding when it strikes a chord with the viewer.”
