On Thursday, Oct. 26, the Erie Art Museum is hosting a 21+ opening reception for Mark Weber’s new exhibit, “Animals.” Weber, an artist and illustrator, “combines his twin passions for drawing and wildlife in this new exhibition,” according to the Erie Art Museum. 

“Whether using acrylic paint, marker or graphite, drawing is always the foundation of Weber’s work,” states the museum. “His signature style is to pack the flattened surface with compressed stylized animals, vegetation and abstract shapes. He then fills the space with vivid primary colors.”

Guests can meet the artist and browse his “acrylic paintings of jungles, forests and the wildlife that dwell inside.” You can also drink beer samples that are “paired with selected art on display.” 

As stated by the museum, Weber has worked as a fine artist and illustrator, “creating whimsical drawings and paintings.” His work has been featured in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Playboy, The Atlantic Monthly, Highlights for Children, American Eagle and the International Herald Tribune.

The event will be held in the Holstein Gallery from 7 to 9 p.m.; $10 for general admission, $8 for museum members and $8 for guests who arrive dressed as animals.
