CHATHAM — Local watercolor artist Tim Paholak will have an exhibition of his abstract and figurative paintings, in the Joan Allen Art Gallery at Camphill Ghent in Chatham, through July 30.
“I have painted with watercolors for many years and I explored and developed relationships with the primary and complementary colors and the many colors that lie in between. About six years ago I was introduced to oil painting and have primarily been working in this medium ever since; my focus has been the relationships between colors and what lies between them. I have developed an interest in using texture on the canvas to bring a textural component to these relationships. It seems to be an endless panorama that holds great wisdom, a journey from the soul to the canvas that goes from self-awareness to world awareness.”
