pleased to announce a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Frank Wimberley. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Works included in the exhibit range from paintings to sculptures as well as limited edition prints.

Abstract expressionist Frank Wimberley was born in Pleasantville, New Jersey in 1926. He currently resides in New York City and Sag Harbor, where he exhibits and creates his beautiful compositions of color, depth and texture. In 1998, Frank Wimberley was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Grant. While a student at Howard University, he played jazz, which led to his friendship with musician Miles Davis. Frank Wimberley stated that painting for him is “The feeling from the very  first stroke, and following it to it’s own particular conclusion. It is very much like creating the controlled accident.” 

Frank Wimberley is a part of numerous public collections, galleries and museums, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art,  The Art Institute of Chicago and Yale University Art Gallery.
