Introducing Alex Mikhailau

Kitimat Museum and Archives’ latest exhibition

Kitimat Museum and Archives will be hosting an opening function for an art exhibition by Kitimat artist Alex Mikhailau.

The opening of the Subtle Beauty of Kitimat exhibition, featuring some of the emerging landscape artist’s paintings, will take place on Friday, April 5, from 7.30 p.m in the upstairs gallery.

Mikhailau is a self-taught artist who moved to Canada in 2013 from Belarus – he continued to learn and practice in visual arts after his arrival in Kitimat.

In 2018 he began presenting his works in local galleries and online.

Mikhailau’s favourite medium is oil – he combines plein-air and studio work to create his paintings.

The exhibition consists of a series of oil paintings depicting various landscapes of Kitimat throughout the year, both urban and the nature surrounding it.

Mikhailau’s inspiration came from the daily walks with his dog: town walkways and forest trails are usual guests on his canvas.

Mikhailau will be in attendance and refreshments will be served.

(Plein-air is a French expression which means “in the open air”, and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors)
