Michael Milczarek

Michael grew up and lives on Massachusetts’s North Shore where he draws his inspiration from painting the everyday scene.

“We have a great range on subject matter to draw from in New England, ranging from rocky coastlines, smooth beaches, salt marshes, fields, meadows and mountains.  We drive by them every day going to work, school, errands and endless soccer, band, and football practices.

My inspiration is to remove the asphalt, streetlights and buildings in order to see the landscape as it truly is.  The majority of my landscapes are literally a view from the side of the road.”

Michael works primarily with a full color palette often tilted towards a tonal approach.  His goal for a landscape painting is to convey a sense of quiet calm we all need from time to time.

He is an artist-partner in the Saltbox Gallery and is a member of several area art associations.

Karyl Hayes,  one of the founding members in 1988 of the Saltbox Gallery, is a member of the Copley Society and the North Shore Arts Association.

Karyl is an “en plein air” painter who uses watercolor to explore the play of light on the landscape. Growing up on the Maine Coast cultivated a love of the inter-relatedness of the sea, sky and land, a focus which has influenced the direction for much of her painting.

Karyl teaches watercolor on the Isles of Shoals (Road Scholar Program) and exhibits widely on the North Shore.

In 2010, her watercolor, “September Blueberry Fields”, earned the Paul Strisik Memorial Award for Outstanding Landscape at the North Shore Art Association. In 2014 “Catching the Light” won the Mary James & Slater Brown Memorial Award for Excellence in the Rockport Art Association Contributing Member Show.
