Mark Wiener @ Dorian Grey Gallery

Mark Wiener, a diligent, insightful and experimental NYC artist.
 ( August 24, 1951 - September 29, 2012)

Dorian Grey Gallery is hosting "STREET MARKINGS".
Curated from Wiener's unfinished painting series and related works.
The show will be on view November 3 - 25, 2012.
Dorian Grey Gallery 437 East 9th Street, NYC.

Mark Wiener with his long time partner, Linda Di Gusta.

Wednesday, November 7, 2012, the Nor-easter that hit NYC
couldn't keep friends and fans of Mark Wiener away from the reception.

Mark Wiener achieved the abstract permutations of his vision
with scientific calculation.

Wiener employed methodical knowledge of paint's reaction,
to the flat surface.

In the numerous, albeit somber series that Wiener embarked upon,
the form and content were joyous and a creative adventure.

With his friendly and easy going demeanor Mark Wiener was someone,
who always made you feel "right at home", RIP.
