A Fresh New Dialogue on Canadian Landscape: Paintings by Micheal Zarowsky
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.”

 

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 31, 1pm-4pm.

The Chapel Gallery, is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm. It is located at  15 King Street in Bracebridge

Pond: A series of images created over time of one wetland in Muskoka by Jane Croteau
Pond, (“p
änd”): a small body of still water formed naturally or by artificial means
. This pond is still, intermittent and changeable A fascination with its transformation has brought Jane Croteau back with several cameras over a dozen years. Images from all seasons form this collection. Not a typical Muskoka waterway but rather closer to the norm: small, almost hidden in woodland, passed by many but know by few. She is hiding in the open, unnavigable, dressed in changing light, sometimes a jewel, other times a dowd.

Calm and Chaos: Paintings by Neil Sternberg

Calm and Chaos represents the duality of the paintings, quiet and introspective on one side and a view of the chaos and demoralization going on in the larger world on the other. Throughout Neil Sternberg’s career as an artist, his work has mostly been about his personal world, his immediate environment of both people and places, however, as he observes the world in its current state, Neil have increasingly felt his own obligation to comment about it in his art. The connective tissue between the two halves of the show is the human spirit, whether it is being at one with nature or being at odds with our own humanity, our determination to thrive is what he is interested in. The calm portion of the exhibit are concepts observed firsthand, created either directly from nature or working from images of his own, while in the chaos part of the show the source of inspiration is sometimes borrowed from found images. The G20 riots, the emerging of First Nations, or one of the many wars going on in the world are all areas of exploration in his art that highlight the determination of the human spirit to be unfettered.

Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour Turns 40
The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour began its artistic journey in the late seventies, when sculptor Richard Green, joined by a few friends, first developed the innovative concept.

Through discussion, demonstrations and displays, visitors to the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour were able to deepen their understanding and appreciation for a multitude of artistic mediums and techniques. Over the past 40 years, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour has seen a continued evolution, presenting only the finest professional artists and craftspeople working within Muskoka. There is always something new to discover, from well-designed functional items to expressive fine art. This year, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an exhibition at the Chapel Gallery.
