ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are proud to present the second solo exhibition of veteran represented artist, Casey Weldon. The exhibition, "Stray Voltage", will include 20 of Weldon's newest acrylic paintings. The series will include Weldon's latest phenomenon depicting mysterious settings with glowing highlights.
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 9 through May 7, 2016. The opening reception with the artist, live music, open studios, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine will be on Saturday April 9, from 6-10pm.
