Charles Weiner I Monument Sotheby’s International Realty I Art Gallery Event
January 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join us on Thursday, January 12th, from 4-6 pm at our Ruxton Office & Gallery to enjoy the paintings of Charles Weiner.
My paintings have no deep meaning and are not meant to be thought provoking . Instead, I am happy to have brought a smile to your face when viewing my interpretations of landscapes, people and animals. I love to paint whatever I find intriguing, unusual, inspirational or just beautiful. I draw from and re-interpret the vision of many varied artists, both past and present.
My previous experience is limited to working with oils for one summer in 1967. Luckily, I was always artistic and creative, perhaps handed down from my grandfather and father who both painted on China. For a limited period I tried painting on wood furniture. When my three girls were young, I painted clothing for them and their friends. I also painted miniatures on the fingernails of dozens of their girlfriends who I would find lined up at my door when I returned home from work.
The pandemic for me had one positive side-effect: I rediscovered painting but with acrylics as I am too impatient to wait for oil paint to dry. I began classes at the Myerberg Center which closed after 4 lessons due to Covid. I continued on zoom with a class taught by Judy Schlossberg. In-person classes resumed recently. During my pandemic time, I took over part of my home and have produced over 125 canvases.
My vocation as a Board-Certified Radiologist for 45 years had me viewing people and the world in black, white and shades of gray. With my paintings, I have rebounded into the use of vibrant colors to produce my images. My art is currently in many private collections in Baltimore, the Greater Washington Area and California. Canvases are also currently on display in the offices of Morgan Stanley in Baltimore and Jones, Lang LaSalle. I have also authored 3 coffee table books on “The Art of Covid-19” (Volumes 1,2 and 3).
Life prior to art involved growing up in the Park Circle area of Baltimore City as well as attending Baltimore City College, Gettysburg College and University of Maryland School of Medicine. I continue to reside in Pikesville with my wife of 54 years and still find time to dote on my 3 daughters, their husbands and my 6 grandchildren.
