ADAM GROSOWSKY

​Recent Press Release on THE RIDE:
Karin Clarke Gallery is pleased to present an exhibit of new work by the popular and prolific Eugene artist, Adam Grosowsky. 

Grosowsky was born in Chicago in 1959. He received a B.A. in Fine Arts from Evergreen State College, followed by a M.A. and M.F.A. in Printmaking from the University of Iowa in 1984 and 1986, respectively. His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries around the United States and for more than 10 years at Karin Clarke Gallery. He has been a full-time art faculty member at Lane Community College for over 25 years.

Although much of his training was in printmaking, his primary medium today is oil painting. His large canvases, often portraits of women, are studies in light and dark. They are distinguished by dramatic contrasts – light or bright color against large areas of rich, dark background.

This new group of about 25 pieces continues his focus on portraits of women, sometimes with animals, but also includes landscapes and circus themed works. Although many pieces are on Grosowsky’s grand scale, there are a number of smaller works in this collection.

Adam Grosowsky’s work has been extensively collected in the Northwest and across the US. He was featured in Lux Magazine, and locally his paintings can be seen at Pacific Women’s Center, and the University of Oregon Knight Library. Nordstrom Department Store has commissioned over 80 of his paintings for their flagship locations nationwide. 

Adam was born in Chicago in 1959. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Evergreen State College in 1981 and his Masters of Arts and Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the University of Iowa in 1984 and 1986 respectively. During this time, he studied under the famous printmaker Mauricio Lasansky. 

Although much of his training was in printmaking, his primary medium today is oil painting. His large canvasses, often portraits of women, are studies in light and dark. They are distinguished by dramatic contrasts—light or bright color against large areas of rich, dark background. 

Adam has been a full-time faculty member of Lane Community College in Eugene, teaching painting, figure drawing and printmaking since 1996.
