Today’s blog will discuss our current exhibition, The Space of Trees, a Solo Exhibition for the work of PA-based artist, Gilbert Gorski. Below you will find a brief bio on Mr. Gorski, a look into the reception we hosted on Friday evening, a link to our editorial in American Art Collector, and images of a few works currently featured in the exhibition. Now lets get started!
The Space of Trees, is NOW OPEN! The Opening Reception was Friday evening and we had an outstanding crowd. Visitors were thrilled to speak with Gil, and have the opportunity to discuss his technique as well as the locations he portrays in his compositions.
About the Artist:
Gilbert Gorski is based out of Sarver, Pennsylvania and many of his paintings represent the surrounding areas near his home. He also creates compositions that merge the rural environment of western Pennsylvania with other areas the artist recalls simply from memory. Thus, some of his works represent specific places and others combine different locations into one ethereal framework.
Gil received his Bachelor’s and Master’s from the Illinois Institute of Technology. In addition, he studied painting at the School of Art Institute in Chicago. Gorski successfully maintained a duel career as an architect and artist.
As an architect, Gorski designed the World Headquarters for the McDonald’s Corporation in Oak Brook, Illinois and the Oceanarium, which was a major addition to the John Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. He has also taught visualization techniques and design studios at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the School of Art Institute in Chicago, and the University of Notre Dame.
In addition to creating pointillist landscapes, Gil produces industrial etchings (shown above), which encapsulate the structure, grit, and allure of urban areas. He truly is an expert draftsman!
American Art Collector:
This exhibition is currently featured in the October 2018 Issue of American Art Collector. An editorial about the show titled, Woodland Works, can be found on pages 108-109. We still have a few copies left in the gallery!
“In his subtle paintings, Gorski employs thousands of sculpted brushstrokes that transcend the two-dimensional surface. “Paintings can be electric,” he says. “Historically, photography displaced painting, but photography has become so accessible it is now commonplace. Paintings by contrast remain special because they are singular works. They are communications with the artist.” – excerpt from Woodland Works
