About the artist

Hailing originally from Krakow, Polish-American artist Antoni Beltowski is known for his paintings on larger canvases.
He uses white priming to establish his own scale of colors. This primer sometimes becomes an element of the paintings.

Beltowski creates his works outdoors, usually with a large umbrella positioned over the canvas to adjust light. He rarely reworks paintings in the studio, preferring to revisit the scene on different days and atmospheric conditions to create images that better reflect the natural beauty of the outdoors.

His past as a multilingual and multicultural immigrant informs and influences his work.

Join Alliance Française for this special opportunity to admire this contemporary impressionist’s work.
We are also delighted to welcome members of the Twin Cities Polish community to share in this special occasion.
