Adam Grosowsky: Every Now and Every Then
New Paintings and Very Old Prints
December 1, 2021 - January 15, 2022
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.
