We are excited to present an extraordinary solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Casey Weldon. This exhibit titled "Subnatural" will highlight Weldon's most current paintings. Weldon will be in attendance at the Opening Reception to meet, greet and answer questions. The Opening Reception with Live Music will be held on Saturday, April 12 from 6-10pm. Local artists within the ArtHatch building will have their studios open to the public as well. Complimentary Stone beer and wine will be served to guests.
Born in Southern California, Casey Weldon spent the majority of his formative years there graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After operating a studio out of Las Vegas, Weldon relocated to New York, then California, and now Portland where he works as a full time artist. His fine art, imbued with a sumptuous illustrative quality, is indicative of his profession. Weldon mixes iconography of today and the past to evoke a sense of humor, nostalgia, fantasy and even melancholy within the viewer. His pallet and haunting subjects recall the Surrealist masters like Breton and de Chirico.
Weldon has exhibited and sold his work in galleries across the United States and his pieces now reside in collections across the world.
The exhibition will run from April 1 - May 3, 2014.
ArtHatch is a 7000 square foot building which houses the front gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, "The Alley," featuring new and previous works from over 25 artists, the teen room featuring artwork by 15 local teens, 14 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 800 square feet, featuring the work of 20 local artists.
