Announcement   Cabinetmaker/Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph creates uniquely handcrafted items out of natural solid hardwoods. He believes in quality and uniqueness. He likes to stand out from the rest. He likes to add his own flair on the items he creates.

NOTE: Shipping to the USA takes 5-8 business days only.


Paul sells at many art and craft shows during the year. After building kitchens for over 25 years paul decided to build fun stuff. He built his own gallery on the premise where he lives. He believes in walking to work. His gallery is nestled in the quiet countryside on the outskirts of Guelph.

Masterpiece Wonkies and Art Gallery at 7100 Fife Rd. is a dream of master cabinetmaker Paul Szewc (pronounced “Chefs”) whose reputation as a craftsman is well known throughout North America.

Contemporary- and traditionally-designed furniture is situated among sculpture and paintings in the 2,400 square foot gallery, which opened four years ago, built from materials harvested on site or reused from the renovation. The Great Room offers visitors a myriad of opportunities for selecting quality furnishings, collectibles and gifts.

“I describe my furniture as organic because I take a slice of out of a tree to make it as natural as possible,” Paul said. “I turn defects into assets.”

The gallery was a natural evolution, Paul said, because as his work became more well known, visitors who came to view his works wanted to see complementary accessories.
“Our customers are people who want to add something nice to their homes, and not just something that is mass-produced,” he said. “They are looking for something that will last a lifetime; that is intergenerational.”

This is a very high quality piece! The top slides back into place backward or forward with a magnetic closure that is very small and powerful. The pieces all fit together well.

About

Masterpiece Laser - Art Among Art

Paul Szewc is very active in the Summer show season and started to get a cliental around Guelph and throughout Southern Ontario. People started asking if he had a retail outlet where they could purchase his works. He then set up an area in his Garage to sell his works. People started coming every week so he knew it was time for an outlet. He decided a second floor on his Studio would be the only answer to his space problem.

In January 2009 construction started on the second floor for a 2,400 square foot display area. It would include a Grand Room for large pieces, a large reception Area at the front, and a “Wall of Wonkies” which can hold more than 260 Mini Wonkies at a time. In addition to the inside Paul wanted to make a statement with the outside of the building to intrigue people to come and visit. He decided to add his crazy design to all the faces of the building.

Construction of the Gallery concluded in October 2009 and opening night was on the Guelph Studio Tour Weekend October 20th.

Although grand, the gallery is a forward thinking design with many environmental considerations: BarnBoard from the siding of the previous Studio was dried, planed, tung and grooved then used for the floor in the Grand Room. The Plywood roof was removed and painted to use inside for the ceiling of the Gallery. The building is comprised of 2x6 exterior walls with in floor water heating. Energy efficient lights are used with motion detection timers.
