Simons Fine Art Gallery presents “Visions” featuring artist Jas Szygiel

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chalfont artist Jas Szygiel is re-defining what it means to be a Bucks County artist in his one man show “Visions” on exhibit at Simons Fine Art Gallery in downtown Dublin, PA.

Jas’s sensitive yet powerful paintings, infused with rich dramatic color, capture the splendor of the local landscape, transforming his images into an emotional symphony of atmosphere and beauty.  His classically designed, representational paintings combine the use of subtle light and delicate shadows, to bring the mood of the scene directly to the viewer.

A life-long resident of Bucks County, Jas is a graduate of Hussian School of Art and Arcadia University (BFA), and has taught art at both locations. His works have been awarded regionally and nationally, and are included in the collections of the Port of History Museum, The Franklin Mint, LPGA , The Polish National Alliance, and numerous private collections as well.

We are proud to include this talented artist as part of our ongoing “Featured Artist” events showcasing Bucks County’s fine artists. Please join us for a Meet the Artist reception on April 6, from 12 to 4 pm. The show  will run through May 30 during regular business hours at our gallery located on Rt. 313 in Dublin.
