Paper, Paint & Canvas: mixed media collages by Sharon Dundee.
Sharon Dundee was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She received her BFA from Youngstown State University where she followed two divergent paths – painting/art history and graphic design/desktop publishing – the latter became her main career focus for more than 30 years. Specializing in abstract-expressionist analogue collage and mixed media painting, she has exhibited her work nationally and won numerous awards. Of her art Dundee states, “My goal as an artist is to create new life from old forms. By mining a wealth of ‘decaying’ material (discarded photos, old newsprint, books stripped of their covers, etc.) I seek to repurpose it. Through my work, I aim to connect the past and the present and hope that it may inspire the future.”
CURIOSITIES: mixed media sculptures by Ron Krygowski.
In describing his work artist Ron Krygowski states, “I have always been curious and drawn to world cultures and art. I am inspired by fantasy, Catholic imagery, costume, and embellishment with a philosophy of ‘more is more’.” Krygowski grew up in Girard and received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art. While living and working in Houston Texas, he actively created and displayed artwork at Alpha 2 Omega Gallery, the Art League of Houston, and the Texas Renaissance Festival. Returning to Ohio, he has been working in clay at Studio 83 and Trumbull Art Gallery (TAG). Krygowski has shown in the area artist exhibitions at the Butler and TAG, had a one man show at The Hope Center for Art and Technology and is a member of Random Acts of Artists.
