Arthur Weeks Retrospective

Arthur Weeks: 1930 – 1988

The vivid, lyrical paintings of Arthur Weeks blaze with color and joy and arouse in the viewer a yearning for exotic climes, an impulse to purchase a ticket to some intimate, romantic spot.  A World traveler, he liked to lose himself and explore his way back to his hotel, making countless sketches and photos of windows and doorways, balconies and chimneys along the way. Yet he seldom painted objects as they appeared. Colors intensified, landscapes grew more lush, and animals acquired human characteristics so that each painting became an accumulation of impressions.
