Welcome to the West End Gallery
March 17 – 29, 2018 Patricia Johnston Exhibition of New Paintings Patricia Johnston presents her sixth solo exhibition at West End Gallery. Capturing arresting images of the West Coast, Patricia’s paintings are almost photographic in quality while still maintaining a painterly effect. Her mastery and sensitivity to colour is extraordinary and enables her to layer paint in a way no other artist can. Inspired by the poignancy and beauty of a single moment she can hold a vision in her minds eye long enough to translate it to canvas. Dramatic sunsets, crashing waves and miles of sandy West Coast beaches offer magnetic vistas drawing each viewer further into the landscape.
The West End Gallery presents the premiere, solo exhibition by Gerda Marschall in Edmonton, AB Saturday March 24, 2018. Marschall’s floral paintings are alive with light, colour and texture, evoking the sunlit acres of gardens that surround her studio. Using thick layers of oil paint and gestural marks, Marschall manages to capture the sensations of her gardens in full bloom, from vases of cut flowers in joyful profusion to fields of blossoms stretching out into the warmth of a summer afternoon. Drawn in to the masterful handling of paint, the viewer is invited to stop and experience her gorgeous gardens and still lives as Marschall does, full of movement and life.
Please join Gerda Marschall at the opening of her exhibition, Saturday March 24th from between 1-4 pm. Exhibition continues through April 5. All Artwork subject to pre-sale.
