The show is a selection of mostly recent works, concerning the latest interest of Grazyna Adamska in forest vitality and in ecological stance -threats in nature as fires and changes in coral reefs
In her semi abstract paintings the illusion of a landscape rests upon an abstract newly build layer. The process of incorporating the layers of spontaneity and analysis, imaginary and real spaces brings tension, surprises, and discoveries. Grazyna’s more strict abstract paintings feature the vigorous and contrasting relationship between shapes and textures. Through a chosen spatial configuration of the parts, she stimulates allusion of movement. This method provides the viewer with layers of association, attraction, and ambiguity.
The Red Brick Café on Douglas opened in October 2006. Since then, we’ve hosted nine successful art shows each year. With over 500 customers per day, exposure is high and many art enthusiasts come regularly. Red Brick has developed a reputation for showcasing high quality art and competition for shows is robust. The café was designed specifically as a gallery and the space is ideal for exhibitions.
“Showing my prints at Red Brick proved to be more lucrative than most gallery shows. The beautiful and extremely comfortable aesthetic allowed the many patrons of the cafe to really picture my art hanging in their own homes.” – Michelle Purchase
“I had my work at the Redbrick last spring and it was a pleasure to work with Shelley and to get some great Guelph exposure in her hopping cafe. The unique architecture shows paintings of all kinds very well, with the high ceilings, wood and niches complimenting a variety of work.” – Laurie Skantzos
“For sheer foot traffic of art lovers but not necessarily the usual gallery-goers, a staff and owner who put the artist at the centre, and a beautiful venue in the downtown, the Red Brick can’t be beat. Not just in Guelph but in the entire surrounding area. I showed at the Red Brick two years ago and I’m still getting people around my studio who saw me there first. My experience was amazing all around.” – Ivano Stocco
