                  Mark Dziewior has been painting and drawing from the time he could first hold a pencil or brush. Now an accomplished painter and sculptor, Dziewior continues to hone his craft both in the studio and in the classroom where he teaches undergraduate students drawing, painting, and sculpture with an emphasis on the figure.

                  Dziewior applies his painting and sculpting skills to his work with both the human figure as well as animals. A Wisconsin native, Dziewior grew up in a rural community where he could readily observe and enjoy wildlife which inspired him to paint and sculpt animals.

                  Dziewior received his MFA in painting from University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee in 2008, a BFA in painting in 2005 from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (Milwaukee, WI), and an Associate’s Degree in Commercial Art from Madison Area Technical College in 1988.

                  His work has been featured in numerous shows and exhibits throughout the country. He is a commissioned sculptor and painter whose work is featured in public art as well as private collections.

                  ARTIST STATEMENT

                  “Having been raised in central Wisconsin among the woods and bluffs, I was afforded ample opportunity to explore, observe, and interact with wildlife nurturing what has become a lifelong fascination with and connection to animals. Some of my favorite childhood memories involved animals of one kind or another. The fawn I bottle-fed at a wildlife rescue, the rabbits I raised, and even the cougar cub I was allowed to hold purring against my chest were spiritual encounters that touched and inspired me. Even the books I read as a young boy were those about animals.

                  My love for nature and its creatures was paralleled by an innate and almost visceral need to draw and paint. I was fortunate to have parents and an older brother who nurtured my talent and interest from the time I could first hold a pencil and brush. It wasn’t until I was completing my MFA in painting that I began a serious pursuit of sculpting, opening a whole new world for me. I found that I could bring a depth and breadth to my subjects through sculpture that I missed when creating two dimensional art. Whether it’s capturing the motion of a running wolf or the almost human-like expression of a lazy rabbit waking from a nap, my work has evolved to a whole new level through sculpture. Additionally, I can encourage people to touch, hold, and have a tactile experience with sculpture that I couldn’t with my paintings.

                  Alongside creating art, I have a passion for teaching art. I find it endlessly exciting to foster the talents of college art students and feel it is one way I can help ensure that arts will continue for generations to come. Being an adjunct professor allows me to have the best of both worlds. By helping aspiring artists to master their craft, I have become stronger in my own.”

                          To our Valued Customers

                           

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
