SVM opens “Of Time and Place” by artist Richard Weis, during First Friday

Friday, April 6, 7 p.m.—GRANVILLE, N.Y.—The Slate Valley Museum is pleased to announce artist Richard Weis will open his contemporary art exhibit “Of Time and Place” on First Friday, April 6 between 7-9 p.m. The show will run through May 27. The show is both globally influenced and culturally diverse in content.

While assembling this exhibition, Weis had time to reflect upon a half century of his work, old and new, searching for works that seemed just right for this particular venue. Some of these works are being shown together for the first time. Weis thinks of his work as visual poetry, or visual music sparked by a life exploring and experiencing what is to be human in this world.

“Weis’ work is bold and emotionally charged. It is full of strong form and robust color. The projected imagery of his work is intense and we are beyond delighted to have his paintings on display for the public to enjoy,” said Krista Rupe, executive director of the Slate Valley Museum.

Slate Valley Museum is located at 17 Water St., Granville, N.Y. For more information, visit
