Mike Kowalski and Neal Philpott

LAND & SEA–two Northwest artists paint the
unique land and seascape of the Northwest

Opening Reception:  First Friday  May 6, 6-8pm 
A professional artist/illustrator working in watercolor for over 30 years, Mike Kowalski 
now splits his time working in oil and paints
‘en plein aire’ whenever possible. With
accomplished brushstrokes and a keen
sense of color, he crafts the varied and
complex light qualities of the waters,
reflections and skies of the Northwest.

“Being surrounded by our local natural
beauty pulls at me daily and provides
an endless amount of subject matter.”

As a “preservationist” painter working in realism, Neal Philpott has become an artistic witness to our Northwest environment.  He paints places and scenes that may not exist in the future because of environmental changes.  He does not remove the  “ugly”
elements or add  “pretty” colors.  He shows us how a simple patch of sunlight can transform everyday views into something special.

“I try to capture how light enlivened these scenes and makes them transcendent for a brief moment.  I am of the mind that we have precious resources that may disappear.  I’m painting for the Northwest.” says Philpott.
