Galerie Old Chelsea is thrilled to present the latest works of local artist Roy Brash, with the vernissage of “My Outaouais” on Saturday, June 15, from 1 to 4 pm. This exhibition is a heartfelt invitation to art enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, offering a unique journey into the heart of the wilderness through Brash’s masterful blend of brushstrokes and colours.

The Essence of Wilderness

Roy Brash's new collection captures the tranquil serenity of nature, evoking the peaceful atmosphere of a forest by the water. With each painting, Brash invites viewers to experience the cool breeze rustling through the trees and the gentle lapping of water against the shore. His use of subdued colors, reminiscent of the natural hues found in the forest, creates an immersive atmosphere of calm and introspection. Whether it’s the adventurous journey of a backpacker through the woods or the peaceful solitude of a cabin at the lake's edge, Brash’s artwork encourages viewers to lose themselves in the beauty of nature.

Dynamic Energy of the Log Drive

In stark contrast, Brash’s portrayal of a log drive is filled with energy and excitement. Through dynamic brushwork and vibrant colors, he brings to life the exhilarating scene of logs rushing downriver, driven by the powerful force of water. Each stroke of the brush captures the adrenaline-fueled thrill of the loggers' daring exploits, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats. This vivid depiction highlights Brash's ability to convey both tranquility and excitement through his art, making "My Outaouais" a diverse and captivating exhibition.
