About the artist:

William Kalwick

Twenty-five years ago, when William Kalwick Jr. visited Guatemala for the first time, he was attracted to the colors, the vivid handmade clothing of the Mayan people and their traditions and the atmosphere of the little pueblos where time seems to stand still. That was enough to keep him coming back every year and travel to remote places in search of that inspiring subject matter that makes his paintings striking.

William Kalwick's art was greatly influenced by his late father who had studied with Lajos Markos, a prominent portrait painter. Kalwick studied with his father until graduating. He then attended the Arts Student League of New York. In 1981, Kalwick moved to Houston, Texas to become the protégé of Lajos Markos. The two made numerous trips to Europe, especially Italy, where Kalwick experienced first hand the country's long tradition of powerful images. In a profile in Focus/Santa Fe magazine, Kalwick was quoted as saying, "I started with a strong European influence, and now I see my style changing." In addition to Markos, he credits other influences to Sorolla, Repin, Zorn, Serov, and Sargent -- all artists noted for their expressive works.

In March 1999, Southwest Art magazine featured Kalwick's work on the cover and elaborated upon his style in an article titled "Guatemala Days." He also was featured in Art of the West magazine in the July/August 2000 issue. Kalwick's portrait painting was featured in Southwest Art magazine in the November 2001 issue. Kalwick has participated in many shows including the Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, California; the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, as well as the annual Gilcrease Museum show.

Kalwick's paintings hang in collections throughout North America and Europe. He is represented by the following galleries: Wadle Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Texas Art Gallery, Dallas, Texas; Shoal Creek Gallery, Austin, Texas; Wilcox Gallery, Jackson, Wyoming; Trailside Gallery, Scottsdale, Arizona; Sylvan Gallery, Charleston, South Carolina; and Galerie Gabrie, Pasadena, California.
