What If? Gallery is an inviting, new, down-to-earth gallery that welcomes and invites artists and art lovers to experience the unique atmosphere of variety, acceptance, and the inclusive sharing of art. The gallery walls are filled with abstract, realism, impressionistic and representational art with mediums such as oil, acrylic and watercolour painting, professional artistic photography, encaustics, pen and ink, graphite drawings and some newly developing sculptural aspects. The pieces are available to enjoy, admire, or purchase.
At What If? Gallery, we strive to give a voice to artists who simply must speak their heart through their art. Every piece which fills this space is created originally and captures the personality of the artist who has created it. It is of utmost importance to the owner that original art be available and accessible to all people. It is our belief that in order for people to connect with each other and the world in which we live in a meaningful manner, we must share in, and appreciate, the expressive experience of art. What If? Gallery represents artists from Saskatchewan as the local talent is staggering, however, the gallery looks forward to expanding its collection in the future.

This artist is definitely one to watch in 2019. Doris Kolowrat is a uniquely talented artist from Strasbourg, Saskatchewan. Doris studied art formally at the Vancouver School of Art (Emily Carr University) for two years and then studied art history at the University of Victoria. Intriguing use of materials, combined with the approach taken as she considers the manner by which her vision will come to life, is something to behold. Allowing herself to become lost in the creation of her work, she finds both the bold and the minute details within the constructs of the painting process, subsequently making her work undeniably unique and bringing the words “original art” to life.
From Doris: “The most important aspect for me is colour. The intensity, brightness or dullness, and the electric or harmonious colour combinations, lead and drive the second important factor-composition. The work must have balance and harmony, but of course, my idea of compositional balance may not necessarily be yours! The third major factor is the paint itself. The way it drips, plops, blooms, and moves, is a language in itself that I love to interpret and form into a work that pleases me, and hopefully, the viewer.
