10 Questions with Painter Lynnea Holland-Weiss
Lynnea Holland-Weiss is a nomadic painting prodigy who swam with dolphins as a baby and can't help but paint all the time, whether traveling or at home. Her figures are unusual as she plays with color and light to convey raw emotion and reveal the inner dialogue that creates body language. She's very intuitive to the nuance of human experience and internal landscapes, as well as being very in touch with the environments she explores. I met Lynnea last summer and she had the vibe of an oracle, so I wanted to catch up and learn more about her magical process and lifestyle.
A Group Exhibition, curated by Margaret Stamm, brings together six female artists whose works in varying media explore artistic expression as both powerfully protective and magical. The contributing artists all have a strong connection to Northeast Ohio. Jordan Fine, Natalie Grieshammer, Meghana Karnik, Brittany Petures, Jess Sikon, and Lynnea Holland-Weiss showcase their extraordinary work, adding Shaker Community Gallery to their repertoire of national and international connections.

My life partner, Dan Bortz, and I just had an incredible collaborative experience while being Artist-In-Residence in Tulum, Mexico with Residencia Gorila/Tulum Art Club. In addition to making collaborations in the studio within the scenic beach/jungle landscape, we also got to hang with local kids and paint a mural as a part of La Esquina Project.
I am pleased to announce I SEE YOU, an upcoming three-person exhibition alongside Dan Isaac Bortz and NDA at Space 1026 in Philadelphia, Pa. I SEE YOU reflects on human interactions within today’s age of virtual communication. The exhibition looks at how we observe, acknowledge and connect with each other and the objects around us on a daily basis. Sometimes the work is playful, humorous and strange, while other pieces express tender and humble moments of human connection or solitude.
I SEE YOU includes a variety of work ranging from paintings, works on paper and wood cutouts, as well as an all-immersive installation with objects, ceramics and site-specific wall painting. These three artists initially met in Philadelphia through wheatpasting and murals, a common thread in their practice. While their approaches and styles differ from one another, they all make uninhibited figurative work that embraces color and reverberates everyday scenarios.
Opening Reception: Friday, July 7th 7-10pm
1026 Arch Street Philadelphia, Pa
The exhibition will be up until July 28th, 2017. You can make an appointment by contacting myself or email@example.com. Or don’t hesitate to just stop by and ring the bell, a Space member is typically there to buzz you into the gallery.
