The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is pleased to announce their October show will feature the works of renowned artist Marek Kossiba. Now residing in Beloit, Kossiba was born in Poland in 1940 where he created his first work of art at the age of 12. But, having to earn a living, Kossiba attended the Naval Academy of Poland and spent 20 years as a merchant marine. During that time with art in his blood and a camera in his hands he captured scenes he would later put on canvas. Kossiba came to the reside in the United States in 1985. Currently living in Beloit, he has made his home his studio where paintings of all sizes abound. His paintings cover a wide range of subjects from landscapes and seascapes to sensuous imaginative works that are edgy and thought provoking. Vibrant colors and expert craftsmanship mark his works. He describes his art as a personal expression of himself and each painting that he sells is like losing a member of his family.
Join us October 6th from 5 to 8 pm as we open this exciting exhibit to the public. The event is free and open to the public. Kossiba will be on hand to meet the public and discuss his artistic journey. The show will continue through October 26th.
The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is located at 520 E. Grand Avenue in downtown Beloit. The gallery is open: Monday from 10 to 2, Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 5:30 and Saturday from 9 to noon.
