For the past few weeks, rehosting of this website was initiated and completed with success. We at Olszewski Studios hope that this action has not been an inconvenience to our Collectors and Visitors. At the same time, the Artist's Online Store website also went through some changes, which have been completed. Thank you for your patience.
An Olszewski Collector's response to Book No. 3, The Five Nativities.... Ron Hanson wrote the following:
Got up early this morning and read the book you sent. It was almost written as you were writing a private letter, so it was very easy to finish. The insight into your thinking and planning is amazing. No wonder every piece is a wonder of art. I also enjoyed the tid bits of your personal life, which added more depth and meaning to some of your pieces. I cannot wait to purchase and prize your upcoming art when it is released. Although I know it is hard to get a hold of, I await on pins and needles. What a great talent you are. Thanks so much for the book. I will place it in my showcase along side my collection.
Bob Olszewski has published another informative publication about his art found available on the Olszewski Online Store. There you will find more information about this new release: Olszewski Art Book No. 3: "The Five Nativities and How They Came to Be." Please note that the format for this release has changed and is different than the previous two publications, Binder No. 1 and Binder No. 2 which are being produced in this new format. Instead of publishing his writeups using notebooks and inserts, Bob is now having his handwritten writeups produced in a quality softcover glossy 8.5" x 11" full color book format. By going to this new format the cost has been reduced significantly. All are now available for purchase under the Publications Category on the artist's online store.

A History of Past "Keeping You Informed" Announcements from Olszewski Studios
A Webmaster Welcome
I am delighted to be involved in the development of my brother's web-site. This has been a truly wonderful experience gathering and sharing information about his magnificent works of art he has created over the past 45 years. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did researching and putting it together. We are continually updating the web site as there is so much information to share with visitors. Some astute visitors send in comments with correction I have made and these continue to be welcomed! We hope the site enhances your own education about the art and the artist.
Notice the two different colors shown in the block below. We chose these colors to differentiate when Robert, personally, makes contributions and when I make contributions to the information. As Bob's Brother, I've seen his art grow, sold his art, wrote about it, evaluated it, and lived some of it with him.
We have tried to make the web-site as user-friendly as possible. Be aware changes are being made daily improving the appearance, adding new information, and correcting that which has previously been published as this project grows. You will find new writings by Robert, items for sale by Olszewski Studios, beneficial links to other web-sites and descriptions to name but a few. FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) are most welcome, are answered as promptly as possible and we will share those that will assist others in their journey into the art world of Robert Olszewski. Since we launched the official Olszewski Studios web site, we have also established additional web sites (links shown below) which we hope will be of great value to you.
Here is the list of those sites (they all have something do with Olszewski):
To navigate from this page, you can either choose the menu buttons/links on the top menu, at the bottom or click on the bumble bees shown on this page. To assist you further, there is an Introduction and Guide and of course the search engine below can be very helpful. For example: Type in "Cinderella" without the quotes. of course and see what happens!
