Carolyn Swiszcz: Innovation Road
Carolyn Swiszcz will premier a series of 11 paintings that depict landmark buildings, both little known and famous, that line the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The artist elevates each structure to landmark status by drawing attention to overlooked features through her use of bright color, patterned surfaces and streamlined environments.
Swiszcz's subjects include a corner store, 3M Headquarters, a Ralph Rapson church, the Walker Art Center's expanded facility, and a sequence of seasonal views of a vacant beer garden patio.
Swiszcz received a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design and has been featured in exhibitions at the Drawing Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), the Soap Factory, OSP Gallery (Boston) and the Plains Art Museum. She is the recipient of artist fellowships from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Bush Foundation, Jerome Foundation and the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts.
The exhibitions remain on view through February 21, 2009.
Both exhibitions are curated by Franklin Art Works' Director Tim Peterson.
