Paintings Par Excellent - Exhibitions 2019
This is a year in which long-planned exhibitions come to fruition. The April 11 - 20 solo exhibition of CUBIST works by JAMES WATKINS proved to be a re-sounding success with every painting attracting a red sticker and a delighted owner. A magnificent, but not unexpected result as the demand and appreciation for this artist's work continues to grow.
EUGENEA - LES FEMMES, May 9 - 22 sees the unveiling of a small, exquisite collection of works by our resident Russian born and trained artist, Eugenea. This intimate exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view a body of work by an artist who creates unique and beautiful oils of the female form and other chosen subjects.
The exuberant realm of FANTASY SURREALISM, 15 - 27 August is the joyful world of HENRYK SZYDLOWSKI. This Polish born, Perth based artist has now been represented by International Art Centre for over 35 years. The masterpieces of Szydlowski stand upon the stylistic foundations of works by early 20th century geniuses such as Kandinsky and Miro. Szydlowski, a 1976 honours graduate of Krakow's Academy of Fine Arts enjoys an international reputation as a contemporary torch-bearer of FANTASY SURREALISM.
With over forty years experience, BRIAN DAHLBERG is one of New Zealand's best know artists and at the top of his profession. Dahlberg's stylish, contemporary landscapes capture the subtle essence of their location with a boldness of line and brilliance of brush. These skills are amplified by the clarity of the artist's uniquely personal vision of the New Zealand landscape. REGIONAL SURREALISM, November 8 - 22 affords Dahlberg followers, both old and new, the opportunity to acquire a modern day heirloom by a living New Zealand master.
As Christmas approaches the gallery resonates with anticipation and energy as artworks arrive for the annual ARTIST'S SALON EXHIBITION, 1 December - January 2020. International Art Centre's diverse family of represented artists from New Zealand and beyond, unite in friendship and creative collaboration, each contributing 'something very special'. A joyful close to a joyful year for our artists and clients alike.
