An exhibit of drawings and photographs by John Hrichak will be in the Kramer Gallery of the Belfast Free Library through February. The exhibit titled “Details” highlights Hrichaks’ talent for realistic draftsmanship.
John Hrichak has been drawing and painting for as long as he can recall. Except for a teen fling into surrealism, realistic rendering has been his only focus. He attended the Cooper Union School of Fine Art at a time when realism was as trendy as leprosy. Unfazed he continued along the path of realistic art. John has worked in water color, gouache, oils, acrylic, pastel, graphite, ink and egg tempera. His current works on display are rendered in graphitel and aquarelle pencils.
Hrichak has been an avid photographer for over 45 years working in 35mm, medium format and 4X5 view cameras. Now succumbed to digital can be seen on the streets of Belfast with his trusty Nikon D5200.
The Kramer Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Belfast Free Library, 106 High Street. For more information call the library at 338-3884 ext 10.
