Richard C. Karwoski
Since 1963, Mr. Karwoski had over 40 solo exhibitions and participated in over 500 group shows throughout the <></>United States and Canada. He received innumerable awards, and wrote a book "Watercolors Bright and Beautiful". His work with watercolor furthered the medium which he felt could make as strong a statement as oil. His art has been the subject of innumerable articles and reviews in publications such as The New York Times, Woman's Wear Daily, Arts Magazine, American Artist, and Artspeak.
Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1938, died February 1993. He studied with Richard Linder (1901-1970) at Pratt Institute, NY and in 1963 received a Masters of Art from Columbia University. He was a professor of Art at the New York City Technical College of City University.
His works are in many museum collections, including Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, Newark Museum, Detroit Institute of Art, Portland Museum of Fine Art, Hecksher Museum, Tennessee Fine Art Center, The Portland Museum of Art (Maine), Oklahoma Art Center, and the Arkansas Fine Art Center.
