Karin Clarke Gallery is pleased to present an exhibit of new grand-scale oil paintings by Eugene painter Adam Grosowsky. To accompany his paintings, Adam has framed a series of his college-era fine art prints. The prints are particularly interesting to see in relation to his most recent work.

The subject matter in these new paintings ranges from human figures with birds and animals, to local landscapes, and what he calls Hopperesque scenes.

Adam received his BA in Fine Arts from Evergreen College in 1981, then continued on to achieve an MA (1984) and an MFA (1986) in Printmaking from the University of Iowa, which offered the first MFA printmaking program in the US. There he studied under the famed Argentinian printmaker Mauricio Lasansky (1914-2012), who established the School of Printmaking at the university

Adam relocated to Eugene and moved from printmaking to oil painting. His work immediately caught the attention of numerous west coast art dealers. Adam was hired by Lane Community College, where he taught printmaking, drawing, and painting from 1990 until his retirement in 2019.

Karin Clarke Gallery will be closed December 25 - January 1, except by appointment. The Gordon gallery will remain open.

BIO - ADAM GROSOWSKY, b. 1959

Adam Grosowsky’s work has been extensively collected in the Northwest and across the US. He was featured in Lux Magazine, and locally his paintings can be seen in numerous public and private collections. Nordstrom Department Store has commissioned nearly 100 paintings for their flagship locations nationwide. 

Adam was born in Chicago in 1959. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Evergreen State College in 1981 and his Masters of Arts and Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the University of Iowa in 1984 and 1986 respectively. During this time, he studied under the famous printmaker Mauricio Lasansky. 

Although much of his training was in printmaking, his primary medium today is oil painting. His large canvasses, often portraits of women, are studies in light and dark. They are distinguished by dramatic contrasts—light or bright color against large areas of rich, dark background. 

Adam was a full-time faculty member at Lane Community College in Eugene, teaching painting, figure drawing and printmaking for nearly 30 years.
