Theo Wujcik consistently worked to expand his range in subject and content, enlisting an array of styles that do not always conform to limiting categories. He was prolific and experimental up until his death in March, 2014. Wujcik’s paintings are multilayered in meaning, subject matter and context, and take time to absorb. Wujcik was and remains an iconic figure in the Tampa Bay cultural scene, and his legacy will continue to exert an impact on subsequent generations.
From 1972 until his retirement in 2003, Wujcik taught drawing, painting, and printmaking at the University of South Florida in Tampa. From 2000 forward Wujcik articulated more sociopolitical themes in his work, in addition to personal narratives, almost exclusively in large format paintings. The paintings in this exhibition were curated by his widow, Susan Johnson, and represent pieces from a variety of themes and motifs the artist pursued.
Events are free and open to the public. Susan Johnson will present an informal talk at 7 p.m. Please join us!
Regular gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11am-6pm. The exhibition will be on view through June 4, 2016.
