Visiting Polish Artist Lectures at Denison
Posted: February 20, 2006
A Polish-born artist will spend the week visiting classes and working with students in Denison's art and modern language departments under the sponsorship of the Vail Visiting Artist Fund, and funds from the art and modern language departments. Mariola Kwasek also will give a lecture titled "Weaver of Light" at 7 p.m. on Thursday (March 2) in the Cleveland Annex, room 104. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Kwasek, who was born in 1952 in Poznan, Poland, earned her master of fine arts degree at the Fine Arts State School of Poznan. She is now on the faculty of the Universidad San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador where she teaches painting, weaving and drawing in the School of Contemporary Arts and Communication. She says she is inspired by both inside and outside landscapes and, most particularly, by her last visit to the high mountains in Ecuador.
Kwasek's works are found in the National Museum in Poznan and in private collections in Poland, Austria, Germany, Canada, France, Argentina, Ecuador and the United States.
