The Elk County Council on the Arts Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibit from local artist John Mosebarger.
"Lost in a Kaleidoscope" is Mosebarger’s debut solo exhibit, featuring inspired watercolor paintings that play with darkness and light. 
“My work reflects the reality I see around me, not just physically, but mentally. What I see is unique to only me, as is the same for every living creature on this planet,” Mosebarger said. “My paintings are the things I discovered while adventuring, that beneath everything we see, there is a more vibrant color than anything we can actually see. That idea of life itself being something that connects all living beings, tethering us all together, a colorful strand of fate that coils around our existence.” 
Mosebarger began painting after seeing pieces by Pete Winklbauer.
Mosebarger has learn new ways to manipulate water and pigment to create a still-evolving personal style with Winklbauer’s guidance. 
"Lost in a Kaleidoscope" will remain on display through July 28. A reception with the artist will be held at the Elk County Council on the Arts Gallery on Friday, July 13 from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
