New oil paintings by Edwin Carter Weitz at Modern Arts Midtown
- by Michael J. Krainak, Freelance Writer in the Visual Arts

Not so for oil painter Edwin Carter Weitz of Lincoln, Nebraska whose art has arced beyond that of mere hobby or outlet. In fact, Weitz believes his short six-year “career” in landscape oils has been transformative.
