Donald Slowik received a BA in studio arts from University of Illinois Chicago. An emerging artist, he died suddenly in 1983 at the age of 28 leaving behind a large body of work. During his time at UIC he was instrumental in organizing an artist support group which for a number of years served as a focal point for artistic criticism between participants from UIC, University of Chicago and School of the Chicago Art Institute. Slowik possessed a limitless supply of energy for the creation of art and his work served as an inspiration to all who knew him. This exhibition contains over 80 pieces of Slowik’s work and we have no doubt that it will serve as an inspiration for the Seattle audience as well.
The Donald Slowik: The Inner Gaze exhibition from January 6th – January 29th, 2022 is made possible by the generosity of two Seattle artists, Marc Wenet and Deborah Walker, who have been custodians of Slowik’s work for many years and who are donating all proceeds from the exhibition to the Gallery 110 Emerging Artists Program. Stop into the gallery next month to see this amazing show.
