The College of Visual and Performing Arts Dean’s Gallery at Syracuse University will host “Works by Ken Brzozowski,” an exhibition of sculpture, through May 26. An opening reception will take place at 5:30 p.m., Friday, April 28 in the gallery, in conjunction with the School of Art and Design’s annual fashion show. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. Paid parking is available in Irving Garage.
The work displayed is part of a new series using minimal changes to the material to evoke a sense of being, to animate the inanimate and to give personality to the materials without making them too human. Brzozowski has been an artist for “as long as he can remember.” His first “large work” was painting the landlord’s backyard with roof tar when he was three years old. He studied sculpture at VPA under Lawson Smith and the late Rodger Mack and is listed in “Who’s Who in the World.” He currently divides his time between an Adirondack studio on the Hudson River and Manhattan. His work has traveled to the corners of the world, including Europe and Japan.
The VPA Dean’s Gallery is located in Room 200 of Crouse College and is open to the public Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information, contact the VPA Dean’s Office at 443-5889.
