Welcome to the West End Gallery
Alain Bédard presents his premiere exhibition with West End Gallery. His passion for painting started in 1976 and led him to pursue art studies at Cégep de Ste-Foy in Quebec. He then traveled to New York to continue his studies and gain experience in illustration. Never one to rest, Alain’s desire to push his own boundaries led him to further his education at Laval University, completing his Baccalaureate in 1984. While attending Laval University he had the privilege of studying under the renowned Canadian painter Claude A. Simard, who became a great friend and mentor. Having worked as a professional painter for many years now Alain has developed a distinct style based on his travels, love of architecture and brilliant use of colour. Join us for the opening reception Saturday May 16 from 1-4pm.
The West End Gallery is proud to present Fresh Perspective by Brent Laycock. After living in Australia for 18 months, Mr. Laycock returns with fresh eyes to his beloved Alberta landscape. There is a newfound intensity in his acrylic paintings that draws you into his canvases. Observers will notice an underlying abstract quality, perhaps a new colour combination, or an intriguing texture that will evoke an emotional response. Alberta’s endless inspiration has fuelled Brent’s creativity for decades and this exhibition of new work is not to be missed.Please join Brent Laycock at the opening reception of Fresh Perspective, Saturday May 23rd from 1-4 pm. The exhibition will continue for two weeks, closing Thursday, June 4th. Please note, artwork is subject to presale. Direct all enquiries to our Edmonton gallery at 780.488.4892
