A graduate of the School of Visual Arts and former sessional instructor in the Faculty of Education will open an exhibit of his most recent mixed media drawings and paintings at Windsor’s Artspeak Gallery this weekend.
Signs, Symbols & Silhouettes will feature works by Jim Mroczkowski (BFA 1975) in his first solo exhibition in Windsor since 1977, when he exhibited his work in the former Leddy Library Gallery.
“All of my work is essentially a continuous exercise in self-portraiture since all of my imagery emanates from my biography and life experiences,” says Mroczkowski. “Even if you fail to discern my personal and direct intentions or message, I hope that you are sufficiently intrigued with my work to look long enough to be somewhat engaged.”

The show runs October 13 to 20; a free public reception will celebrate the opening at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 15. The Artspeak Gallery is located at 1942 Wyandotte Street East.
