Korn Gallery to Display ‘Moon Paintings’ by Greg Kwiatek

MADISON, NJ—An exhibition of paintings by New York-based artist Greg Kwiatek will be on display in Drew University’s Korn Gallery from March 23 through April 27.  An opening reception on April 9, which will run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., will be held in the gallery.

“Kwiatek’s ‘Moon Paintings’ are pieces in which twilight, evening and night effects are found through delicate shifts in a variety of blues played off against notes of warmer color,” said Gabriele Hiltl-Cohen of Drew’s art department.  “Neither overly descriptive nor largely abstracted, these works exist in the realm of shifting references to the real and to the imaginary. The shifts in reference create a variability of mood in each work, which can range from calm to deep unease.”

Kwiatek received his BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University.  He has received various grants including the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.  Kwiatek’s work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions around the country.  He lives in Hoboken, NJ, works in New York City.

The Korn Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The gallery is also open by appointment.  For more information about the Korn Gallery or its exhibit of works by Greg Kwiatek, please call 973/408-3758 or visit www.drew.edu/korngallery.
