 Wiener, an avid member of the Santa Clarita Artists Association, is hosting an art exhibit April 20-21 at the Sunrise Sterling Canyon Retirement Villa in Valencia, where Wiener’s paintings will be on display, and for sale, too.

“All sales of his art, 100 percent, is going to go to the Alzheimer Foundation of America,” said Wiener’s daughter Laurie Morgan.

Morgan’s stepmother, Wiener’s wife of more than 40 years, was recently diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and her father wanted to support the foundation, she said.

“He’s an abstract artist, and his work is very powerful and emotional,” Morgan said. “He puts a lot of his emotions and feelings into his artwork. They’re almost 3-D, he uses so much paint.

“He uses emotional intent with every piece.”

 More of the art may be viewed at Wiener’s website: www.anatomyofpaint.com.

A former art collector, Wiener used to own a retail furniture and appliance store in Carson, before retiring to the San Fernando Valley.

He also use to play jazz and swing music in a band.

Sunrise Sterling Canyon Retirement Villa is located at 25815 McBean Parkway in Valencia, and the phone number is (661) 253-3551.
