WILDERING: Paintings by Basia Krol

For artist Basia Krol, Wildering describes a re-awakening of self-identity through active observation of nature. Painted largely during the pandemic, Krol finds a grounding connection in the landscape of Central Illinois. In the midst of uncertainty and loss, scenes from Indiana Dunes Park and Woodland View farm, the site of a vast prairie restoration, Krol’s expressive paintings invite us to share a journey toward personal freedom and spiritual renewal.

Barbara “Basia” Krol was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland. She studied painting and printmaking at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and traveled extensively in Europe to study old masters in all major collections. In 2000 she earned her Masters Degree in Studio Art from Warsaw Academy of Fine Art and had her first solo show in Warsaw, Poland.

What’s next? We’ll be taking a break from exhibiting in the gallery this Summer and hope to spend a little time in the studio. We anticipate a show of new work by Emily Rapport in August/September 2022.
