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.
