VISTA

The Beaufort Art Association Gallery will feature a collection of works by local painter Sebastian Polanski. The show will run from February 18th through March 30th with a reception to meet the artist on Friday evening February 22nd, from 5:30 to 7:30 at 913 Bay Street.

A relative newcomer to the local art scene, Sebastian’s latest collection of works, VISTA, explores the beauty within the framework of every day views. Whether encapsulating the energy of the nightlife from bustling Manhattan street corners or observing the ever changing landscape transform from the local docks in the late afternoon sun. Sebastian uses different techniques to convey each moment he is capturing. He manipulates the canvas to suit his mood at the time of interaction of the scene. Consequently, some pieces emit a composed quality while others maintain a more chaotic vibe.

With a career in Architecture and Design, Sebastian often finds inspiration for his works routed in the structure of a scene. Captivated by buildings, boats, water and infrastructure elements in general, Sebastian has selected this collection of works to showcase his affinity for beauty in the simple things in life.
