Opening Reception: Hans Weiss Retrospective @ WORK_SPACE
Apr 5 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

WORK_SPACE is honored to host a retrospective of the work of Hans Weiss, a long-time and extremely engaged resident of Manchester. Curated by Christiane O’Brien in conjunction with Hans himself, the exhibit is scheduled to run from April 5-May 31, 2019. The opening reception will be on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 6-8p with a brief conversation with Hans to take place at 7pm. This exhibit is an opportunity to recognize the breadth of Mr. Weiss’s artistic achievements and celebrate the depth of his contributions to Manchester and beyond.

Hans Weiss is an artist, an inventor, and a benefactor for art, culture and community. In fact, his impact extends as far as the moon. Through the Dynamic Metal Products Company that he founded in Manchester in 1963, Hans created many aerospace devices; some making it to space including buckles for the Apollo astronauts’ spacesuits and lunar antennas for RCA that enabled communication between astronauts on the moon and NASA staff at mission control. Hans was awarded two U.S. Patents for recorders in punch clocks that automatically recorded elapsed time – this was in 1970 before computers were available. In 1989 Mr. Weiss sold his business and began painting full time in his Manchester Studio which sits next to the Hans Weiss Gallery at 138 Oakland Street.

We are so thankful to have such a strong connection with the Connecticut arts community. If you haven’t visited WORK_SPACE before, we believe that wall space is synonymous with public art gallery. To celebrate this, we are offering a series of art workshops in our main street gallery space.

TED Talk Tuesday: Vulnerability @ WORK_SPACE
Apr 16 @ 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm

“The Power of Vulnerability”, Brené Brown

“Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.” – TED.com

This is a free monthly network gathering where we watch a TED Talk over lunch (BYO), discuss the talk, and then eat cake to celebrate birthdays for that month.
