Gary Sczerbaniewicz creates small sculptural works that showcase hybrid architecture as the subject matter. His scale-model replicas of brick building fragments and brick masonry façade catalogue a range of vignettes that have been culled from his experience living in a rust-belt city for more than a decade. In this grouping of works, disconnected doors, blocked windows, shadows of staircases, collapsed walls, eroded rooflines, and bloated surfaces shrug off their originally designed roles and stand as petrified strata which seem to gently mock the beholder.
Arthur Popek's award-winning graphic prints span traditional printmaking techniques including etching, aquatint, dry point, and mezzotint. His whimsical paintings and prints offer a detailed view of the artist's imagination, often inspired by his surroundings of nature and civilization. As a Polish artist, living and working in his home country, Popek has been a successful painter and illustrator, but his prints are what give him the most joy. Popek feels the process of printmaking brings him "back to [his] roots."
