Clarks Summit artist, Leon Vieria is 60 years young and enjoys painting “pictures that are pleasant to view.”

“Every day images that are easy to enjoy,” Vieria added. He paints using oils as his medium and is the featured artist at the Clarks Summit Second Friday Art Walk on May 10 at Weezie’s Corner, 116 Depot Street.

He started drawing when he was seven-years-old, and as an adult he has pursued his art through private and group lessons with local artists.

Vieria said of his collection of art he will exhibit at the art walk, “I have no favorite, I like them all. Sometimes I’m happier with the look of one more than another but I do like them all.”

He has mostly exhibited his art at Clarks Summit Second Friday Art Walk venues and has done some commissioned work.

In addition to finding Vieria’s art at Weezie’s Corner, other participating venues include A1 Gold, Lawler’s Affordable Elegance, Paulette’s Pretty Purses, Cloe & Company, Everything Natural, Mama Mia’s and B&B Art Gallery.

This month’s after party will be held at Weezie’s Corner beginning at 8pm.

Art walk hours are 5 to 9 p.m.
