Carol Ann Kronyak’s art makes a statement about our times and comments on our materialist society, but it derives from her own highly distinctive personal experience. As she states, the objects she creates “epitomize the daily existence of our lives”; constructed of objects and materials encountered in the environment that surrounds her, her unique compositions expose her inner self in all its complexity with a candor that is sometimes droll, sometimes mysterious, and sometimes horrifying.
Holding a degree in fine arts from Montclair State College in New Jersey and both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree (magna cum laude) from the State University of New York at New Paltz, she has taught studio art, drawing, design, and sculpture in the public schools of New York and served as an adjunct professor of design and sculpture in both New York and New Jersey. She has also worked professionally with graphics and printing companies.
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception at the museum on Saturday, November 5, from 1 – 4.
