THE CHAIR AFFAIR
SPONSORS OF THE CHAIR AFFIAR
Mark Zjawinski and Joanna Zjawinska chose Ukiah as a place to retire and continue with their art work in this tranquil valley.
These talented artists relocated from the fast pace life of San Francisco building a studio in Ukiah.
When looking for the local arts community they found the Corner Gallery Coop Gallery in Ukiah.
A special exhibit of paintings and sculpture will open on Friday June 7th with a special reception with the artists from 5 pm – 8 pm.
Mark Zjawinski started his career four decades ago as an abstract painter and has since honed his talents as a classical sculptor.
Recently he has completed a series of life-sized bronzes inspired by Greek mythology.
Mark’s work has been exhibited around the world and is included within the Brooklyn Museum’s public collection,
as well as the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, Poland. His work has been featured in several publications,
including California magazine and Europe’s leading art and architecture magazine, Home and Garden.
Joanna Zjawinska was born in Poland where she began to paint at the early age of six. She earned her B.A. degree in 1972 from the School of Architecture in Warsaw.
Joanna’s paintings transport us to worlds of fantasy and elegance in images that explore complex, passionate relationships. Inspired by artists such as Vermeer,
Degas and Sargent, Joanna expresses her passion for life, her family, her homeland and her adopted home. Her world is feminine and seductive.
