WAYNESBURG – A faculty art exhibition featuring the work of Ron Jesiolowski will be held in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery Feb. 24 through March 19. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 24.
Admission is free and the public is invited.
A member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, Jesiolowski’s work aims to provide a window to peek into a deeper understanding of one’s own personal beliefs, convictions, faith and a shared planetary struggle of survival.
“My work can be classified as fantasy-surreal, which in most cases have spiritual undertones,” said Jesiolowski. “It attempts to invite the viewer to engage in a deeper understanding and appreciation for how precious life truly is, presenting unexpected life forms in scenarios of relative equality, experiencing everyday human goals, ambitions, challenges and obstacles associated with existence on the planet.”
Between 15 and 18 art pieces will be displayed at the exhibition including oil paintings, pen and ink pieces and watercolor paintings.
Jesiolowski’s work has been displayed throughout the Pittsburgh area, including the Carnegie Art Museum in the Scaife Gallery, the Pittsburgh Association of the Arts and Pittsburgh’s Center of the Arts. He attended Point Park College as well as The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and he received his master’s degree from Westminster University in London, England.
