“Girl Power” at Simon Mace Gallery
Thursday, May 4th through Monday, May 29th
Gallery Walk, Saturday, May 6th, 5:30 to 8pm

Simon Mace’s Grand Finale show “Girl Power” features painter, Jeff Weekley. Weekley’s incredibly detailed surrealist paintings have captured the imaginations of gallery visitors since our opening show in 2011. We are delighted to exhibit his newest work for our final show. A percentage of sales will be donated to non-profits benefiting women and girls.

Early in his painting career, Jeff Weekley was encouraged to have the girls he painted appear vulnerable and innocent so that the viewer would care about them. Jeff intentionally gives his paintings generic titles, so, that the viewer can create their own story behind the narrative scene. In my own view, the evolution of the narrative scenes has changed and the girls have become incredibly strong, even the essence of power, such as in one of the newest paintings titled “Girl with Books in Water”. Jeff Weekley’s girls are confident, adventurous, on their own journey through life, and, of course, literary—all ingredients for a powerful human.

Simon Mace Gallery will close with this grand finale show on Monday, May 29th. Come to Gallery Walk on Saturday, May 6th from 5:30 to 8pm to meet Jeff Weekley. Make sure to see this final powerful show and feel good about any artwork you may purchase in our final month as five percent of sales will be donated to non-profits benefiting women and girls. Customers may select between several terrific organizations--on the international level, Women’s Learning Partnership, on the national level, Girls Inc., on the national, state and local level, American Association of University Women, and, the ultra-local level, the Jefferson County Community Foundation’s Fund for Women and Girls.

That bit about closing? Well . . . things are afoot . . . and that’s about all we can say at the moment . . . stay tuned for a future announcement.
