Andrew Weilawski’s Art at Campbellsville University
Sculptor Andrew Weilawski’s artwork will be displayed in Campbellsville University’s Pence-Chowning Art Gallery until March 21.
Weilawski, a native of Bedford Hills, N.Y., specializes in sculptures, with his art consisting mainly of people carved from stone. He has also been a member of the World Wide Arts Resources Corporation since 2003.
Weilawski graduated from Syracuse University with a bachelor of fine arts in 1977. He then took an apprenticeship with Bogdan Groom in New Jersey. Following the completion of his apprenticeship in 1980, Weilawski trained in Italy with master marble artisans.
With a desire to travel and an interest in the exploration of other countries, Weilawski has shared his art throughout the United States and all over the world. His collections have been displayed nationally in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida and Kentucky and internationally in Italy and Monaco.
Weilawski has given exhibitions in Greece and Italy and in museums across the United States. His work has also been represented in galleries in Greece, Monaco, Italy and Maryland.
Weilawski’s inspiration is drawn from watching the behavior of people in a new environment, observing how unbefitting they are in the new world around them.
“It inspired me to comment on how they never quite fit into the new place they went,” Weilawski said.
Weilawski will also be giving an Artist Talk at Campbellsville University on March 21 at 2 p.m. He has given lectures at Royal Academy in London, Birkegaardens Foundation in Stockholm, Cleveland Institute of Art, European School of Economics, and most recently, Syracuse University and Kansas City Art Institute.
A reception for Weilawski will take place following his lecture in the Art Building on March 21 at 3:30 p.m. He will also be conducting a workshop forDavie Reneau’s sculpture class in April.
Everyone is invited to the show and reception.
