Adam Grosowsky American, 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.
