The Prince Street Gallery will present an exhibition of paintings and monoprints with the title “City Light” by Katie Weiss from March 24 through April 18.

Ms. Weiss, who lived in New York City for over 30 years, has always been interested in the overall sense of space, light, shadows and movement of figures in the city. “I am after a sense of groups, of people going about their lives,” she said, “and I want to give viewers a sense of being part of the space.”

After earning an MFA from Queens College, Ms. Weiss taught art at Flushing High School. After retiring from teaching, she moved to New Jersey, where she now maintains a studio. She has exhibited her work at many galleries and shows in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area. This will be her first solo show at the Prince Street Gallery.

PRINCE STREET GALLERY represents contemporary figurative and abstract artists. The gallery first opened its doors on Prince Street in SoHo in 1970. Prince Street Gallery originally emerged out of the Alliance of Figurative Artists and continues to broaden from its roots.  During its founding years the gallery received encouragement from The New York State Council on the Arts in the form of grants, supporting exhibitions, and a catalogue.  In 1980, the gallery moved to Wooster Street where it remained until 2001 when it reopened at 530 West 25th Street in Chelsea.
