Artist Reception: Agnieszka GolasikAdult Events 09/08/2019, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM Main Library – Isabel Rose Café
Local Artist to be presenting her newest series of artwork created with the use of intuitive painting process at the Montclair Public Library.
The Montclair Public Library Gallery, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, welcomes a solo exhibition “Mysterious Universe” featuring artist Agnieszka Golasik, on view during the month of September. “Mysterious Universe” will feature newest works by Golasik created with the use of intuitive painting process in a spirit of embracing the mystery and self-love, letting go of fear or expectations to allow the creations to evolve based on artist’s heart callings, visions, and play. The art reception is scheduled for September 8 from 3 pm to 5 pm in the gallery area.
Originally from Poland, Golasik is an exhibiting and teaching artist who studied Fine Arts and in the USA and abroad. Golasik works in variety of mediums, and has been inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s artistic vision, Pierre Bonnard’s way of mastering color, and Karl Blossfeldt’s fascination with nature’s ability to attain perfect creations and the highest artistic forms. She considers herself an artist interested in the abstraction of nature’s formations and portraying what under normal circumstances stays hidden to observer’s eye. She calls it The Invisible. Golasik’s art reflects her deep admiration of nature, quest for source of life, and a passion for uncovering the secrets of concealed macro and micro worlds.
The Library welcomes inquiries from local artists and arts organizations regarding use of the exhibit space. For further information, please contact the Montclair Public Library (973) 744-0500 ext. 2221.Click here for more details...
