Our first Fellow Spotlight is on Jamie Borowicz, a graduate of Mercyhurst University and SUNY Buffalo. 

A painter and sculptor, Borowicz continually tries to expose himself to the works of as many artists as possible. Over the winter, he reintroduced himself to working with landscapes, experimenting with applying techniques and themes in landscape painting that J.M.W. Turner developed, but applying them to the local “landscape”, for a change of pace. 

 

 

 

 

With the warmer weather starting, Borowicz is shifting focus to his summer 2018 beach projects. Multiple storms devastated the shoreline over the winter, and he plans to do some radical reworking of his existing beach sculptures, like the one pictured here, that were impacted by the harsh weather.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictured here is the central section of a watercolor entitled AR-15 worth more than 17?, which was accepted for the 95th Annual Spring Show at the Erie Art Museum. Borowicz will also be preparing a new body of work for a show in the fall at Glass Growers Gallery, 10 E. 5th Street, Erie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Borowicz is using his fellowship award to travel to explore new sites and museums for sources of inspiration, visiting Rome in April and attending an educational/teacher trip in Nepal and China in June. His June trip will focus on Buddhist temple sites, Nepalese and Tibetan culture. If you would like to "follow" Borowicz on his travels this summer, visit his blog www.beachworks.blogspot.com
