Portrait Artist Henryk Ptasiewicz to Paint in Steelville during August 2015

Gallery Zeke Pottery ExhibitOne of the glories of art is how it outlives us. You now have the chance of a lifetime–of more than a lifetime!–to have your portrait, or a family member’s portrait, painted in oil by a world class artist.
Steelville Arts Council’s Artist in Residence for the month of August is internationally-known artist Henryk Ptasiewicz. Henryk will be the featured artist in an exhibition at Gallery Zeke on Main Street in Steelville, entitled “Go Figure,” opening on August 8th.

During each August afternoon, Henryk will be painting oil portraits, either in the gallery or at the Evans House on Main Street in Steelville. Henryk prefers to paint portraits from real life, but can also paint from photographs. He paints in a realistic manner with an impressionist style.

Stop by Gallery Zeke, or email, to make an appointment with the artist. Prices start at $175 for a 16″ by 24″ portrait. There are examples of other sizes and prices at Gallery Zeke. You may also like to have a look at some of Henryk’s portraits online here.  An oil portrait makes a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime or many future lifetimes. Don’t miss this great opportunity.

Dan’s work is in numerous private and public collections throughout the United States and internationally. “My artwork, an amalgam of vessel and industrial artifact, is full of irony- handsome replicas of man made objects, soft clay renderings of metal objects aged and impotent reminders of a once powerful age.”
