MINUS SPACE is delighted to present Ken Weathersby: Time After Time, a solo exhibition of new paintings by the New York artist. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.
With an opening reception on Saturday, January 7, 2017, from 6-8pm, the exhibition runs January 7 - February 25, 2017.
Ken Weathersby characteristically plays with and against conventions of paintings’ structure, by cutting out and inverting parts, and most recently by embedding photographic images. He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, with notable solo shows at Pierogi Gallery (New York), One River Gallery (Englewood, NJ), NIAD Art Center Gallery (Richmond, CA), Some Walls (Oakland, CA), and the John Cotton Dana Gallery, Rutgers University (Newark). His work has been included in group exhibitions at the National Academy of Art Museum (New York), Honey Ramka (Brooklyn), Odetta Gallery (Brooklyn), 57w57Arts (New York), Parallel Art Space (Ridgewood, NY), Mixed Greens (New York), Aljira Art Center (Newark), the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Gallery (Morristown, NJ), Barbara Walters Gallery at Sarah Lawrence College, the Visual Art Center of NJ (Summit, NJ), Seven (Miami), Toomey Tourell (San Francisco), and I.S. Projects (Leiden, Netherlands), among many others.
Weathersby has received numerous awards and residencies, most recently the Individual Artist Painting Fellowship by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Council/NJSCA (2016). His work has been written about in Hyperallergic, the Huffington Post, Brooklyn Magazine, the New American Paintings blog, Painter’s Bread, and elsewhere. Weathersby holds an MFA in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He was born in Mississippi and has lived in the New York City area since 1990.

ABOUT MINUS SPACE Founded in 2003, MINUS SPACE presents the past, present, and future of reductive art on the international level.
The only gallery of its kind in the United States, MINUS SPACE specializes in reductive abstract art on the international level. Reductive art is generally characterized by its use of plainspoken materials, monochromatic or limited color, geometry and pattern, repetition and seriality, precise craftsmanship, and intellectual rigor. Reductive art is inclusive and pluralistic in its approach, including geographic location, age, gender, medium, artistic strategy, and content of work.
