Emily Weiner (b. Brooklyn, 1981) is a painter living and working in Nashville, TN.

Past exhibitions of her paintings include: David Lusk Gallery (Nashville, TN); Gerdarsafn Museum (Kopavogur, Iceland); Crush Curatorial (Amagansett, NY); LeRoy Neiman Gallery, Columbia University (New York); CULT (San Francisco); Soloway (Brooklyn), and Grizzly Grizzly (Philadelphia).
