Weekley is pictured above with his exhibit, Time for Something Sweet. It consists of nine fabric beehives, a bear suit, a mirror, butterscotch candy, wooded strands, Astroturf, and other mixed media. The gallery purchased his piece as part of their permanent collection; it will be on view until May 21.
Outside of Villa, Weekley is a multi-media artist who has lived and worked in Buffalo since 2001. Born and raised in West Virginia, Weekley often mines personal history when developing imagery and content for his installations, sculptures, paintings and drawings.
