Vernissage of Agnieszka Kowalska’s Paintings Exhibition 25 April 2010 5 p.m.
Agnieszka Kowalska was born in 1958 in Cracow. She earned her graduation diploma upon the completion of a higher education programme taken at the Faculty of Graphic Arts at the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, her teachers were Prof. Andrzej Pietscha (aqua fortis), Prof. Piotr Kunce (poster) and Prof. Jan Świderski (painting). She uses gouache, pastels and oil. She is an author of a few hundred custom-made portraits. Her works were exhibited in Poland and abroad, and most of them are now held by private Polish and international collectors. She had her last exhibition at Katarzyna Napiórkowska’s Art Gallery in Warsaw in 2007.
She is fascinated with Konrad Krzyżanowski and Witold Wojtkiewicz’s paintings and everything that concerns arts and human soul, says Jerzy Nowosielski.
Related to Cracow by heart, she chose to live away from the city. She moved her studio near the Świętokrzyskie forests. Horseback riding is her passion and animals are love of her life.
She and her husband, Maciej Kozłowski, an actor, have two horses and six dogs.
Her current exhibition will feature paintings painted over the last two years and a review of her major artistic accomplishments – works borrowed from private collectors.
