Gail Borowski


Gail Borowski is a wife, mother, and art teacher who is dedicated to painting. She finds her inspiration in the natural, spiritual and handmade beauty around her. Within each painting she celebrates color married with theme. She tries to share this with her Kindergarten through 8th grade art students, as well as the guests at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Drop In Workshop, where she teaches.

Gail has exhibited her artwork in solo and group shows at The Scarab Club, Rochester College’s Hamm Library, Shelby Township Community Center, the 555 Gallery, The Woods Gallery, and Firebrick Gallery. Most recently she was in the Our Rivers Our Lakes exhibit at the Grosse Judy_Palmer30yearsPointe Art Center. She is currently illustrating a children’s book for author Denise Coughlin. She also hosted a solo art exhibit at Fieldstone Winery in Rochester in November 2014. Gail is an active member of the Grosse Pointe Art Center and Anton Art Center.

Gail earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Center for Creative Studies and her Master of Art in Education from Michigan State University. She is currently employed as an Art teacher by Utica Community Schools and is on staff at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Learning and Interpretation Department.

She hopes you enjoy the peacefulness and warmth of her acrylic paintings and collages in this show. More work can be seen at

Artist Statement

My work explores the color relationships of everyday objects. Subtle nuances of color are the things that excite me in my studio practice. One of the other main focuses of my work is the idea of closely examining items that are usually taken for granted or even forgotten. As an artist I like to develop a relationship with my subject matter, and I will often study the objects for lengths of time to gain a greater appreciation for their own beauty and personal characteristics.

The objects and scenes that I choose for my work are usually quiet in their subject, because I believe that that there can be great interest and beauty in stillness. My work is about introspection through a deeper awareness of the world around us.

-Confucius, “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
