Gallery Hours Wednesday- Saturday 7pm - 10pm
Alison Milne Gallery is pleased to present It Looks The Same, a solo exhibition of new paintings by abstract artist Karen Kawarsky. This will be Kawarsky's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Known for her bold palettes and rich impasto texture, Karen's new work is an evolving process using oils and acrylics on found barn board as she continues to experiment with non-traditional tools. The uniqueness of the raw barn board propels each painting in a new direction, inspiring spontaneous choice of colour and texture.
