Kamila Glowacki’s art to be displayed at WRC

Champaign-Urbana music fans might know Kamila Glowacki as 1/3 of local punk band Kowabunga! Kid, or mind behind Nectar, but might know know that she’s also an accomplished artist and is having her work exhibited at the Women’s Resource Center starting next Wednesday with an opening reception. Here are the details, according to the Facebook event page:


Saccharine, an exhibition featuring new work from Kamila Glowacki, attempts to balance the sour and repulsive amongst a vibrant high-fructose world. Bright colors and attractive sweets welcome viewers only to expose insects and rotten bruises. The work simultaneously repels and attracts, leaving viewers to question their tastes.


Kamila Glowacki received her BFA in Art Education and Painting from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2013. Her work has been featured at the Polish Museum of America’s annual spring exhibition for the past four years and received an honorable mention in 2013. Kamila has designed and taught art programs at the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum and is the Education Assistant at Krannert Art Museum. In addition to her art and teaching practice, Kamila is an active member of the Champaign-Urbana music scene. She tours internationally, and plays and writes music for several bands. Her artwork can also be seen on concert posters and album artwork.
