Madison artist “Peter Muyzka’s Visions of America” Show at The Point of Art Gallery
The Point of Art Gallery & Studio in historic downtown Union Point proudly announces a one man exhibit and sale of art by a local Madison artist opening Thursday, 25 February. The show, Peter Muzyka’s Visions of America, is the result of months of painting and preparation by Muzyka.
"It's really exciting to host this show for Peter- he is an inspirational artist of immense talent." Jenkins said. "It’s an honor to show his latest body of work with such an intensely personal theme.”
Muzyka said he was born with a love of travel. When he was one month old, his mother took him across the country by bus from his birthplace in Fresno, California to Northeast Pennsylvania where he grew up. He lived on a farm during his early years and was raised to love the land.
“I have always had a deep appreciation and respect for nature.” Muzyka noted. “Whenever I could, I would travel to state and national parks. I would hike trails, fish streams and take photographs and sketch when possible.”
This series of paintings is different from Muzyka’s works of old farm buildings and farm landscapes, Jenkins said. It is a homage to the beauty and wonder he found in his travels. He has painted scenes of the foothills and mountains of the Grand Tetons to the coastal rocks and seashores of Maine, Georgia and Florida; waterfalls in Pennsylvania and Georgia, plus the Georgia and Florida marshlands.
Muzyka said this special show is dedicated to the wonder he has found in the country's natural landscape. It is a celebration of America's beauty.
The reception with Muzyka in attendance is open to the public and is from 6:00 - 8:00+ p.m. on Thursday, 25 February and the show will close Saturday, 3 April at 5:00 p.m. The gallery is at 604 Sibley Ave, Union Point. For more information, call (706) 486-6808 or go to www.ThePointofArt.net.
