Zarowsky show continues at Chapel Gallery

Do you need an uplifting splash of colour during these overcast days? Micheal Zarowsky’s solo exhibition at the Chapel Gallery will brighten your day. Step into the gallery and become embraced by every colour and hue imaginable. “Never one to be contained by any medium, I have over the years made continued leaps forward by taking the watercolour medium in new directions, thereby opening new possibilities,” says Micheal. Many of his watercolours are on paper but others are painted on prepared Norwegian birch panels by means of a special technique he has invented through trial and error. “Working on gessoed panels isn’t much fun as it is akin to painting on a kitchen counter top with every stroke beading up, streaking, smearing and misbehaving like so much spilt coloured water. But I am dazzled by the new textures, the strength and the immediacy and directness that result,” enthuses Micheal. Forest Full of Morning After a Light Dusting of Snowfall can be seen until April 21 at The Chapel Gallery, located at 15 King Street in Bracebridge. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm until 5pm with admission by donation.

Hilary Clark Cole shared your post.

dan lake / beaver pond inlet connecting to dan lake / bare tree trunks in the water have bird houses nailed high up / how? / look impossible to climb without tipping / anyways side-gressed here / pond is situated so as to catch sun and shoreline reflections just right / no matter however you circle the shoreline / working on a series of smaller pond reflections from this beaver pond until it the beavers move on and it dries up

New Friends At the Chapel Gallery

MUST see show on right now at Chapel Gallery in Bracebridge. Don’t let the cool wintry card fool you, inside is a delicate riot of colour, images online do not do it justice. I’ve posted a link in the comments to one of the pieces in the show. One of my several (!) favourites.

New snowfall for a new pine series

Details

For Micheal Zarowsky, paintings of water form a visual language of their own. “It is my coming to know, through studied detailed isolation of form, of the essence of ponds, rivers, streams and lakes of the Ontario North,” says Micheal who has developed a distinctive way of seeing and conveying the world’s beauty that pushes towards abstraction. “The paintings are an expression of the distances to which I was able to lose myself, lose my edges, becoming one with the moment wherever it found me, while interacting and realizing the world around me.”

Bill Gayner You know things about the woods most of us don’t. Thank you for sharing as much as you do with us.

 

 

 

Micheal Zarowsky okay. nothing one can say there….

 

 

Josy Britton I especially love this one

 
Micheal Zarowsky thanks Josy, was trying for an aliveness of a just landed snowfall / i keep losing myself in different stages of snowfalls and prefer when it is a light covering, so that everything is articulated in freshness…
