Greg Chapelski

Join us at the Blackwell Gallery as we feature Greg Chapelski's Watercolor Paintings for the month of May!

Greg recently moved to Coeur d’Alene after having lived in Colorado over 50 years, a major part of which he free-lanced as a writer and illustrator in the world of advertising. He is a graduate of Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design in Denver.

Outside of a few formal watercolor classes during his school years, he is mostly self-taught. Now retired, Greg has devoted himself to mastering the medium of watercolor and teaching it to others. He often drives his pick-up truck on back-roads, with camera in hand, to photograph reference material such as old structures, steam engines, rusty pick-ups, or anything with scenic or nostalgic value…. Click, click!

Being a craftsman in all he does, Greg makes almost all of the frames for his paintings, along with cutting mats, fitting glass and installing the hangers. As he says’ “It’s a part of the process”. Enjoy!
