Born in Pleasantville, New Jersey in 1926, abstract expressionist painter, Frank Wimberley later attended Howard University and studied with James Porter, Lois Mailou Jones and James Wells. While a student, he also played jazz (a consistent theme in his work) and later became friends with musicians such as Miles Davis, Ron Carter, and Wayne Shorter.
Frank currently lives and works from studios in New York City and in Sag Harbor on the East End of Long Island. Frank Wimberley has had numerous solo and group gallery and museum exhibitions, including at Gerald Peters and June Kelly Galleries in New York, and at Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, and The Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, NY. Several works by the artist have been sold at auction, including at Swann Auction Galleries and are in private and public collections nationally including the Parrish Art Museum.
