This past year, I was visited by a good friend who I knew from my days back as a RISD undergraduate. Verna Valencia is a skilled and dedicated painter and collage artist who regularly travels to visit and report on artists, museums and galleries. I was incredibly honored that she chose to visit my studio and create an in depth profile of my art and working process. This article is now live on her web site!
The Fascinating Work of Sculptor Krzysztof Mathews
I owe her my deepest gratitude for this wonderful attention, and I hope that in turn folks will take the time to visit ( and perhaps even find a home for) some of her marvelous artwork online!
A good but packed holiday season finally comes to an end. With it, here are a few developments I was busy with during November and December, as the semester came to a close..
Juror for the Warwick Center for the Arts
I was honored to serve as the juror for the show “Brave New World” a showcase of digital art on display at the Warwick Center for the Arts. I was quite impressed by the variety and quality of the work submitted!
As juror, I had one of my artworks on display as well- my digital print “Supercharge”
Awarded Honorable Mention at the Winter’s Eve juried show
One of the annual events that artists in the area have come to look forward to is the annual “Winter’s Eve” show hosted by the Friends of the East Greenwich Library. This year, I was pleasantly surprised to earn the award of Honorable Mention for my digital print “Finally Found it!”
So all in all, a very good season. I now look forward to the various exhibitions taking place in the coming year!
This October, I was deeply honored to receive the award of First Prize at the second annual “Art of Darkness” juried show at the Heartspot Gallery in East Providence for my found object assemblage ‘Harbinger’.
A huge thanks to juror Bob Eggleton, and Gallery owner Jen Cahoon!
This October, I was proud to have three of my artworks selected by juror Bob Eggleton for exhibition in the “Art of Darkness” show at the Heartspot Gallery. Two of these pieces are masks, and a third will be a surprise that I am waiting to share on the web after the opening!
The Opening reception will be on Thursday, October 25, from 6:00PM – 9:00PM
The address is:
1970 Pawtucket Ave. East Providence, RI 02914
I was very pleased to learn recently that a piece I had submitted to the WCOA Annual Open Juried Exhibit was accepted into the show.
The piece I have in this show is “Tyrant” a mask made from found object assemblage.
The “RI Open Juried Exhibit” reception will be held on Thursday, October 11th from 6:00 – 7:30pm. Two Excellence awards and four Honorable mentions will be awarded at the reception at the Warwick Center for the Arts
The piece is called “Finally Found It”, a large format vector inkjet print on display at the Elected Artist Members Show of the Art League Rhode Island, hosted by the Jamestown Arts Center.
I am proud to announce that I will have work on display in the upcoming 18th Annual Elected Artists Exhibition for the Art League Rhode Island, to be held at the Jamestown Art Center.
Once the show opens, I will take and share pictures from the event, so stay tuned!
Recently, I mentioned that I had contributed one of my figures to the South County Art Association for the Great Art Heist. Well, just the other day I learned that my friend Jen Ferry was the lucky artist who was able to score this figure.
She sent me this quick shot from the evening of the event:
I am very glad to see that my character will have a great new home!
