Artist produces contrasts of large oils and miniatures
Kanata Artists’ Studio Tour
This year John Mlacak has developed a great deal of his time creating large oil landscapes depicting waterfalls, streams, porch and patio flower gardens, and autumn woodlands shrouded in their first snow.
He has used rich, vibrant contrasts of colour to capture some of the grandeur of our natural setting. Mlacak is eager to show you these new paintings as well as his very popular miniatures during this year’s Studio Tour.
Mlacak is particularly pleased that Chapters in Kanata Centrum is featuring the work of the Studio Tour artists during the month of April.
Interested shoppers will be able to purchase art resource books which Chapters ordered from a list compiled by the “Tour” artists. Brochures will be available in the store and some of the artists will be giving demonstrations and entertaining in the fireplace area.
Mlacak is an award-winning artist and his work can be seen at his home gallery and studio by appointment. He also displays at regional galleries and art festivals throughout the year. After the Studio Tour, he has a solo show at the Atrium Gallery in Nepean – June 4 to July 21.
Visit Mlacak’s web site: www.igs.net/~mlacak/ to preview 50 to 70 paintings, many of which will be available for the Studio Tour.
John Mlacak is a full-time artist and has lived in Kanata since 1965. He has participated in the Kanata Artists’ Studio Tour since its inception in 1992 and looks forward to opening his home and studio to you on April 30, May 1 and 2. Remember to take the tour.
