Peter M. Zawadzki, a Baltimore artist and former gallery owner, died of heart failure Tuesday at his Waverly home. He was 63.

Mr. Zawadzki was born and raised in Bridgeport, Conn., where his interest in art began in his youth.

Mr. Zawadzki, who worked in oils, produced abstract paintings, portraits and landscapes. Other media that reflected his artwork included photography and sculpture.

From 1995 until its closing in 1999, Mr. Zawadzki owned and operated the Sub Zero gallery on 31st Street in Waverly. He also worked as a neighborhood house painter.

Mr. Zawadzki's marriages to the former Ida Turner and Jacqueline Gere ended in divorce.

A memorial gathering will be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19 at St. John's United Methodist Church, 2640 St. Paul St.

Survivors include a son, Peter A. Zawadzki of Arlington, Va.; a daughter, Sonya Bleakly of Baltimore; and a brother, Richard Zawadzki of Bridgeport.
