I Break for Abstraction

We recently had some good news from one of our gallery artists Wesley Wheeler. Wes, who lives in Upstate New York, sold a painting to a major corporate collection in Philadelphia, PA. The painting entitled “The Fire Next Time” takes its name from a book by African-American writer James Baldwin (1924-1987) about race relations in America. The striking painting speaks to Baldwin’s passion and ultimate offering of hope and healing.

While “The Fire Next Time” already has a home, the gallery has a number of Wesley Wheeler’s meditative abstractions available.

Wesley Wheeler, “Water Columns”, 2008, oil on canvas, 40” x 30”

Please stop by the gallery, and we will be happy to show you Wesley Wheeler’s work in person.

I have personally viewed many of Mr. Wheeler's works. These are some great new additions to his collection. Before becoming acquainted with Mr. Weeler's style, I would not have been one to use the "I Break For Abstraction" phrase, but now thanks to him I think I could lead the cheer! Keep up the good work! Thank you!
