Connie Glowacki’s art represents the unique spirit of Door County, she says. Featuring people of varied ages and backgrounds, the figures are united, even briefly, in specific landscapes and also in their enjoyment of the beautiful surrounding natural scenes and representative activities, like feeding swooping gulls with a backdrop of one of the county’s beautiful sunsets or a well-known vantage point.
Even though it might not be immediately apparent, Glowacki is always telling a story with each painting. “I’m almost always taking people to places I’ve discovered or imagined,” she said. “Each painting is a story that brings back a memory, transporting both of us, the artist and the viewer, to a special place. I’m trying to lead us all to greater insights and more understanding of our roles in the world.”
Connie says her basic underlying goal is the same for each artwork, to create an image that reveals her philosophies and creative purpose. “Our past experiences and the values resulting from them,” said Glowacki, “lead each of us artists to select certain subject matter and decide how we’ll present the images as our art.”
On April 7, 2019, Glowacki and her husband Mike briefly visited her paintings at the U.S. Embassy in Prague, in the Czech Republic. The nine paintings were selected by U.S. Ambassador Steve King and his wife Karen. Glowacki was especially proud that each of the scenes pictured Door County, her spiritual home. Ambassador King told Connie and Mike that her art has been highly appreciated by the guests at the embassy’s frequent receptions.
