Meet the Artist: David Weidman Portfolio Preview at inretrospect
2013-04-25 · By Editor
inretrospect, the Retro Row destination for vintageware with contemporary flair, is proud to announce that David Weidman, one of California’s most revered mid-century modern artists, will make an in-store appearance on Saturday May 4, 2013. A portfolio preview beginning at 2pm will be followed by a reception from 6pm – 8pm with Mr. Weidman as the guest of honor.
David Weidman’s unique and whimsical view of the world is captured in his highly collectible vintage serigraphs and posters created in the 1960’s and 70’s. Noted for its graphic sensibility and expert use of saturated color, his work has been featured in People, the Los Angeles Times, dwell magazine, and MarthaStewart.com and can currently be seen on the hit TV series Mad Men.
David began his career in the animation studios and was involved in the creation of many animated classics including Mr. Magoo, Gerald McBoing Boing and Fractured Fairytales. Later he opened a gallery on the famed La Cienega Boulevard, which showcased his formidable talent in the silkscreen print medium. Today, at the age of 92, Mr. Weidman’s staggering body of work is just as modern and relevant as it was forty years ago.
This event is a very special opportunity to meet the artist and to see the largest selection of original Weidman prints available outside of his studio. Original, signed Weidman serigraphs and posters – including many from the artist’s private portfolio – will be on exhibit and available for purchase. In addition, a signed limited edition 8×10 photograph of David Weidman at work – an inretrospect exclusive – is free with any Weidman purchase during the event.
Refreshments will be served. Additional information and images of Mr. Weidman’s extensive portfolio of work can be found at www.weidmansart.com.
