Skylight Gallery presents three solo exhibitions by artists Mark Weiss, Barbara Galazzo and Sharon Falk.
Mark Weiss has been a painter for 34 years. He has exhibited extensively throughout the USA and internationally. His content revolves around an interest in the “ interior world, the language of the psyche.
Mark has a degree in Psychology from Albany University and studied art at The Art Students League in NYC. He received a fellowship from the Bogliasco Foundaton to paint in Italy for a year and recently has completed a series of books on his 34 years of artmaking. Currently, he’s working on a collaborative project with the poet Robert Bly, combining poems and paintings.
Robert Bly says of Mark Weiss’s work: “I regard him as one of the most brilliant of the younger American painters. He is moving with great courage in a direction that few others find themselves able to go. Mark Weiss, by his tremendous skill in color and gesture, is able to move convincingly into places where demons and the divinities can can be seen by us all.”
