The Elk County Council on the Arts is pleased to present “Mysteries of Liquid” featuring stained glass by Michael Orshal and watercolor paintings by Grover Slater. An opening reception will be held Friday, April 22, 6-9PM in the ECCOTA Gallery at 237 Main Street in Ridgway. The show will be on display and available for purchase until May 21.
“Mysteries of Liquid” refers to the liquid state of both stained glass and watercolor paint. Everyone is aware that glass, when melted, is in a liquid state. Most do not know that as it cools it remains a liquid because there is no crystallization. As watercolor evaporates it leaves behind pigment in interesting puddles.
Both stained glass and watercolor are great ways for artists to express the attribute of color. Backlit stained glass gives an enhanced glow as light passes through it. Light passes through watercolor pigments and is reflected back from the white paper below, giving it the glow that other paints cannot give.
Both artists, Orshal and Slater, work out of their Kersey studio, Flower Ridge.
Opening Reception: April 22 6PM-9PM in the ECCOTA Gallery, 237 Main Street, Ridgway
