Huge thanks to my friend Verna Valencia!

Collage on paper (2018) 14 ¼ x 15 ½ in.

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 few updates for the first of the year- 2019!

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!

Getting ready for the “Art of Darkness” 2018 Show

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:

31st Annual RI Open Juried Exhibit at the Warwick Center for the Arts

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

Congratulations to a friend!

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:

Congratulations, Jen!!

I am very glad to see that my character will have a great new home!
