POP-UP: “You Build Your Own Chapels”

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 8, 2-5 p.m.

Of her latest work, Swiszcz writes, “These paintings depict places where I have felt in touch with a kind of grace. Some of the places are scenes from trips, others, like the sauna, are like chapels that I return to on a regular basis.”

A Massachusetts native, Carolyn Swiszcz moved to Minnesota to attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where she earned a BFA in 1994. In the late 90’s she spent three winters in Miami Beach on a fellowship from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. Time spent among Miami Beach’s faded apartment buildings inspired Swiszcz to take an interest in buildings and public spaces. Swiszcz’s work has been exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, The Drawing Center, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery in New York, Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston, and The Corcoran Gallery of the Art. She has been a recipient of the Jerome, McKnight, and Bush artist fellowships. Swiszcz currently resides in West Saint Paul, MN.

The artist will be present at the opening reception Saturday, October 8th from 2-5 pm.
