Artist Bartosz Beda will be holding a solo exhibition hosted by the Art Gallery at Collin College beginning September 29, 2023. The collection is titled "Echoes of Seasons" and features large scale paintings incorporating the symbolic framework of the four seasons thematically exploring the human experience. The large space of the Art Gallery will allow exhibtion of Beda's latest large scale paintings. This latest collection features stunning, vivid colors in Beda's iconic obfuscated and beautifully distorted style.
“Echoes of Seasons is a harmonious blend of abstraction and figuration, a union where neither dominates the painting. In this exploration of the human experience hidden under layers of metaphorical Freud cake, the paintings serve as windows into the complex seasons of migration of human nature,” Bartosz Beda, featured solo artist, said.
The Art Gallery at Collin College will host the exhibition Echoes of Seasons by artist Bartosz Beda from Sept. 29 through Oct. 26 at the Plano Campus. A reception will be held from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Oct. 24. 4-7 pm. The art exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is located on Collin College's Plano Campus, Room A175, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors are also encouraged to join faculty, staff, and students for an Artist Talk in the gallery from Noon-12:45 p.m. on Oct. 10 to hear Gallery Director Anna Fritzel interview Beda about his recent artwork.
