PRLog - July 23, 2012 - PALESTINE, Ill. -- The art of Sarah Mrozinski, Glendale Heights, IL is the subject of a one woman show at the Palestine Art Center, 110 S Main St, Palestine, IL during the month of August.
Mrozinski has been attending Benedictine University in Lisle, IL. She has completed all the Fine Art Class requirements and will graduate with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in the next year.
“Since I was a child I knew I wanted a career that allowed me to be creative. In high school, I discovered psychology which also really piqued my interest. So I decided to combine the two and go into the field of Art Therapy.” stated Mrozinski.
Mrozinski preferred media is printmaking-
Mrozinski has worked with still life, figure drawing, and landscape but prefers working in abstract. She is inspired by nature, forms, shapes, rhythm and emotion. “I enjoy art as a hobby, but aspire to become an Art Therapist, so I can combine my love of art with work that allows me to help others,” Mrozinski said, “I was diagnosed with severe dyslexia at the age of 7. I have overcome many challenges with schooling, having to deal with a learning disability serves as strength and not a weakness when it comes to my artistic ability and future goals.”
Mrozinski has lived near Chicago throughout her life. My grandparents moved to Robinson when I was five. “My parents and I visited them frequently. So since I was a child I have experienced both city life and country life. I feel I appreciate nature so much more experiencing both sides of life and feel it has a great impact on my work.” She said.
Favorite artists are Willem De Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jeff Koons, William Stanley Hayter and Vincent Van Gogh.
“I create art as an outlet for my emotions, it allows me to express myself in a way that I am not capable of doing verbally. I am inspired by everyday occurrences in my life that give me the drive to transfer the emotions I feel to the canvas.
There will be a reception for Mrozinski from 6-8p on Saturday July 28th. The exhibit will also be open 10a-2p Monday through Friday and both are free to the public.
