Robert Truszkowski has an MFA from Concordia University and BFA from Queen’s University. His work has been included in solo and group exhibitions including: Galerie d’art St. Ambroise, Montreal, QC; John Sommers Gallery, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM; and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, NS. Truszkowski works in a variety of media including traditional and digital print media, painting, photography and video and was a finalist in the 2003 New Canadian Painting Competition. During his residency, Truszkowski with the assistance of artist Eric Mathew produced intaglio prints that continued his exploration of issues related to the production, dissemination and consumption of information. A text by Eric Mathew accompanied the exhibition.
Open Studio is synonymous with contemporary printmaking both in Canada and internationally, so to be part of its programming is a considerable feather in my cap. … I was made to feel genuinely supported upon my arrival in a way that eased any trepidation about working in a new environment, with unfamiliar people; the kind of welcome and transition that allowed me to get right to work. The palpable sense of community is what drew me to printmaking as a student in the first place, and Open Studio has certainly managed to capture this feeling and get it right. – Robert Truszkowski, Visiting Artist 2008
