The Opening Reception for “The Hour of the Wolf(Man)” is 2:30-4 p.m. Saturday, June 10. At 3 p.m. the artist will give a short Gallery Talk.

Wolves will yodel, howl and prowl June 7 – July 5, 2023 during “The Hour of the Wolf(Man),” a 50-year retrospective by Michael Andryc. The pack will gather in Step Up Gallery on the top level of Mesa Public Library in historic downtown Los Alamos. Highlighting both released and heretofore unreleased acrylic paintings and illustrated manuscripts, the exhibit will span Andryc’s career as a self-taught “outsider/insider” artist.

From the Bernalillo Signpost

By Oli Robbins, Arts Editor, 2016

Many artists assume alter-egos. For Marcel Duchamp, it was Rose Selavy (translated in English to “Eros, that is life”), and for German surrealist Max Ernst it was a bird named “Loplop.” For Michael Andryc, it’s his Polish grandmother, Anna. Michael, a self-proclaimed “sophisticated primitive post-modern artist” (yes, he acknowledges the inherent irony of such a title) admits that as a child he was “deathly afraid” of his Babka Anna Andryc, in part because she spoke a foreign language in a time when “no one wanted to talk about their origins before coming to America,” and because she was a woman more tenacious than the era allowed . . .

' She was such a strong woman—married three times—something which was unheard of in those days. One husband even mysteriously disappeared.' Now Michael enjoys hiding behind her in his paintings, traveling with her on outlandish adventures.
