Rising star Emma Grzonkowski hosts exhibition at Castle Fine Art, Exeter

Emma Grzonkowski will be making a guest appearance at an Exeter gallery this February to unveil a newly curated exhibition of her work.

Castle Fine Art, Exeter on Cathedral Yard, will be welcoming the contemporary painter on Saturday 27 February 2016 between 1-4pm.

Emma has built up an extensive portfolio of captivating, large scale works. She will present a selection of her original and limited edition pieces, many of which have been hand-embellished by the artist, adding an additional layer of texture, vibrancy and expression.

Capturing myriad emotions through the portrayal of strong, powerful and beautiful women, Emma pours her own life experiences in to each and every piece she creates, telling a story about her own journey as both an individual and artist. Her figurative works have gained her a strong following of collectors across the UK, since her spectacular launch into the fine art market six years ago.

Emma studied fine art at the University of Chester and it was during her final year of study in 2009 that a young Grzonkowski was discovered by Glyn Washington, founder and director of Washington Green Fine Art  – which owns the Castle Fine Art retail network throughout the UK.

When still an undergraduate, Emma found herself already a professional artist. She said:

“My latest exhibition is a representation of all the deep emotion I have felt during my life and how art has helped me process and overcome pain and difficulty. I’m very excited to be exhibiting my work to Exeter.”

Selina Cassidy, gallery manager for Exeter’s Castle Fine Art, said: “We are very excited to welcome Emma to the gallery. It will be exciting to see the viewer really engage with the intensity of emotions conveyed through the paintings, and we have no doubt that they will be snapped up very quickly.”

Emma will be presenting her new collection at Castle Fine Art, Exeter, 18 Cathedral Yard, EX1 1HB on Saturday 27 February 2016. An exhibition of her work will then run for a further week.

Pieces can be bought from the exhibition or online: www.castlegalleries.com.
