Gornowich to exhibit paintings at WMC Artist's work has spiritual themes

November 23, 1992

Maryland artist Randall A. Gornowich will exhibit his figurative oil paintings embracing spiritual themes Dec. 1 through 18 at Gallery One of Western Maryland College in Westminster.

The gallery is on the third floor of the college's Hoover Library. It is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A reception for the artist will be held on Dec. 1 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A native of Grand Rapids, Mich., and a resident of Baltimore, Mr. Gornowich graduated with honors from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a bachelor of fine arts degree in 1991. While there, he was awarded the Seymour Mandelbaum Scholarship, which is presented annually to a student with outstanding artistic abilities.

During his junior year, he studied in Florence, Italy. Soon after his return, he submitted his work to the Grand Rapids Public Museum, where it was displayed during a seven-week juried exhibition.

Since then, he has exhibited in a number of shows in the Baltimore area, including the recent "City Visions" show at Harborplace, Mitchell Baker Galerie in Baltimore and the Maryland Federation of Art's second photography exhibition in Annapolis this year.

Mr. Gornowich is accomplished in several artistic disciplines, including painting, drawing, sculpture and photography. The Gallery One exhibition will feature his oil paintings on paper applied to wood. The paintings are as large as 5 feet by 4 feet.

Gallery One exhibitions featuring three new artists are planned for spring semester.

Bim Jones' landscapes will be shown Feb. 9-26. Two foreign students, Sara Lundberg, a sophomore at Western Maryland College, and Nick Kostin of the Maryland Institute of Art, will show their work March 2-26.

The Art Honors Alumni Invitational for graduates of the Carroll County Art Program and the K. H. Wentz Show for WMC art majors will be held in the spring.
