||Holiday arts sale and the art of Russ Weaver|
Russ Weaver grew up in rural Ohio where "art and music were in the air we breathed." His mother was a Sunday painter and his brother was a commercial artist. Many of his close relatives were musicians, so it was natural for Russ to gravitate toward figurative art that captured the reflections of stage lights on skin, clothing and instruments.
Over the years Russ delved deeply into psychology, special education, photography, wood carving and stained glass, but drawing and painting remained constant. He is perhaps best known for his "napkin art" which adorns musician’s walls and even CD covers. One popular blues venue created a Russ Weaver wall of fame where performers posted copies of their prized sketches. Another venue holds an annual evening of jazz as a scholarship fundraiser where the tables are covered with paper. There is always a line of people at Russ` table because when the paper is full of drawings it will be replaced and handed to someone in the crowd. Russ has a knack for capturing the expression that shows the performer is "in the zone". The music inspires the art resulting in drawings that aren`t quite caricatures and not quite portraits but something in between.
In the past Russ owned a gallery, taught evening art classes at a career center and was a founding member and president of a regional art guild. Currently Russ and his wife Deborah (a fiber artist) live and work on Dock Street in Cedar Key.
