"Weinberg spent 35 years in business at Fel-Pro, a Skokie-based automotive-parts manufacturer founded by his grandfather in 1918. After selling Fel-Pro in the late nineties, Weinberg worked as a consultant for three years."Then I decided that what I wanted to do was follow my real passion, which was photography,” he explains. He began studying with other photographers and also opened an eponymously named gallery in 2006 at 300 West Superior Street, where he has displayed his own work as well as that of almost 30 other artists.
Newton and Weinberg have been married for 18 years—this is a second marriage for both—and together they have four children and six grandchildren. [...]Weinberg is involved in the charter-school movement and holds events at his gallery to educate students about fine art."more » « less
