Alan and his wife, writer Nina Barragan, purchased their 100 acre Teeswater, Ontario farm in 1969. Weinstein converted the 1916 barn into a studio, and re-forested the rolling acres beside the river. Alan and Nina’s first three children were born during the next decade, and Teeswater gave Weinstein the space and time to concentrate on his art, and to expand his interests from printmaking into drawing and painting. Today, Teeswater remains his studio during the summer and fall months.
In Iowa City, Weinstein purchased a large 90-year-old barn, adapted to include home, studio and gallery. (Shown here). The style and layout of the 8,000 square foot structure provides three levels of open spaces and includes both painting and printmaking studios, print and drawing exhibition space, and a permanent gallery of paintings.
In 2016 Alan & Nina sold the Barn. Alan moved his studio to an industrial facility in Iowa City. The new space has 1,800 sq. ft. for both storage and work area.
