Weber Exhibits at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

September 27, 2016

Mark Weber, professor of art at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood, will show his work in “Tributaries: A Centennial Celebration of Art & Design Alumni” at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The exhibit, which features the work of 19 alumni, runs Oct. 6-26 in conjunction with the institution’s centennial celebration.

Weber’s work in this exhibit is part of his “Special Intentions” series. Created with oil, acrylic and enamel on canvas, his paintings are inspired by found objects collected in backyards, junkyards and railroads.

“While the objects were discarded and left to rust or decay away, my paintings give them new life, turning them into crosses or other abstract forms,” he said. “Collectively, this series aims to inspire a confluence of spirituality and hope.”

Weber earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and a master’s degree in fine arts from Washington University in St. Louis. In addition to this exhibit, he has participated in nearly two dozen solo exhibitions and more than 50 group exhibitions. Moreover, his artwork has been displayed in numerous public and private collections, including the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Ralston Purina, and Hunan Normal University in Changsa, China.

Weber has taught at St. Louis Community College for more than 20 years. In 1995, he was hired full time at STLCC-Forest Park. In 2008, he joined the faculty at STLCC-Wildwood.

During his tenure at STLCC-Wildwood, Weber has helped create an environment that embraces and appreciates art. From curating the outdoor sculpture park, to managing the indoor art collection, serving as the faculty mentor for the Fine Arts Club, and hosting numerous student art exhibits, he continues to have a profound impact on the campus community.
