Museum & Teer Gallery: Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the work of Tom and Charlotte Wegrzynowski.
Tom Wegrzynowski has been a full-time instructor with The UA Department of Art and Art History since 2006. He has exhibited work nationally, most recently at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, Contemporary Arts Center in Las Vegas and Transmission Gallery in Oakland, CA. In addition to painting, Wegrzynowski is also interested in collaborative projects. These include the “Hand to Hand” chronicle of the Iraq War, which was curated by Cecelia Kane and exhibited nationally; illustrations for Alan May’s anthology, “Dead Letters”, which was published by BlazeVOX in 2009; and Jerry Cullum’s conceptual catalog of the “First Walker Street Biennial”.
In her ninth year of teaching at UA, Charlotte Wegrzynowski teaches Drawing I and Design I in the Foundations area of The UA Department of Art and Art History. She has taught graduate level watercolor classes for the Department of Theatre & Dance and has given guest lectures in art appreciation as well as in anthropology classes. She also teaches through the community partnerships program at Arcadia Elementary School in Tuscaloosa. Wegrzynowski has been juried into exhibitions at the Meridian Museum of Art and the Alabama Women’s Art Caucus in Huntsville, and she won second place in the SECAC 2016 Juried Exhibition. She received the Best of Show award in the 31st West Alabama Juried Art Show. She received her BA from The University of the South and the MFA from The University of Alabama Book Arts Program.
