Memphis artist John Sadowski has been painting for over 40 years. His work has found its way into private and corporate collections throughout the United States. For a limited time, his work will be on display at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville.
Sadowski has for many years painted representational art, in particular local landmarks. In his collection, viewers will recognize buildings and street scenes from places such as New Orleans, Oxford, Mississippi, Jackson, Tennessee, and, of course, Memphis. His painting style reflects on the character and personality of these places. His abstracts are formed from layers of paint that has been added, subtracted and carefully placed until he can proclaim the work complete.
Whether realism or abstract, Sadowski's art reflects the lifelong experience of a seasoned artist with the enthusiasm of one who has just begun his pursuit to artistic expression. "Two Sides to Every Story" combines these two distinct styles in a unique show.
