Celebrating 30 years with West End Gallery, Alberta artist W.H. Webb presents a special solo exhibition of new acrylic paintings, opening Saturday March 18.
Often describing his landscapes as “painterly realism,” Webb uses acrylic paints in a manner reminiscent of the traditional school of watercolourists. While his paintings may be viewed as topographical landscapes, they are intellectually developed with the inter-related elements of space, form, colour, line, unity, and rhythm. His work reflects the beauty, mood, and endless horizons of the vistas and mountains of Alberta.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday, March 18 with artist in attendance between 1 and 4 pm. All artwork is subject to pre-sale. Please direct inquiries to our Edmonton gallery location at 780-488-4892 or to email@example.com. W.H. Webb's exhibition continues through March 30.
Quebecois landscape artist Guy Roy presents a solo Exhibition of new paintings, opening Saturday April 8. Passion, spontaneity, and movement are alive in his grand canvases, threatening to burst with bold colour and dramatic light. His eighth solo exhibition in Edmonton, Guy Roy constantly endeavors to push his own artistic boundaries - to surpass himself with every new brushstroke. This will be his sixteenth exhibition with West End Gallery, a testament to his talent and collectability.
“Painting is a constant endeavor. You must overcome your fears, develop your spontaneity, and above all take risks while accepting mistakes; understand your deceptions while trying to surpass yourself with every new brushstroke saying: this time I will succeed.” – Guy Roy
Join us for the opening reception Saturday April 8 with artist in attendance between 1 and 4pm. All artwork subject to pre-sale. Please direct inquiries to our Edmonton gallery location at 780-488-4892 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Guy Roy's exhibition continues through April 20.

West End Gallery will be featuring Edmonton artist Fraser Brinsmead's solo Exhibition of new work: Iconic Hotels of Western Canada. Fraser will be our artist in residence on Saturday April 22, conducting a painting demonstration during his Exhibition's opening reception between 1 and 4 pm.
Fraser Brinsmead was born in the small community of Lac la Biche to a physician father and musically gifted mother. In 1956 the family moved to Edmonton, and Fraser’s love for music and art began to emerge. Fraser's first glimpse of the “big city" affected him quite deeply; retaining those feelings of awe, his passion for art and music parlayed into an architectural career spanning over three decades. Architecture has been described as "frozen music" and "bringing form into the light," themes that inspire Fraser's paintings - familiar scenes into which the viewer is compelled to join in, hear the sounds, feel the crowd, breathe the smells and experience the light.

Toronto based landscape artist Shi Le presents a solo exhibition of new work, opening Saturday May 6. A professional artist and an art educator, Shi Le received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute of China, and a Master’s at the University of Waterloo. He has taught fine arts in various post-secondary institutions including Lakehead University, Queen’s University, and the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Shi Le's paintings are re-interpretations of the tradition of Canadian landscape painting, depicting scenes of pastoral beauty formed around Southern Ontario.
“Landscape is a recreation of the moment in memory that captures my emotion in response to the truthfulness of nature. My response and understanding to the surroundings are central. Through a palette knife-stroke and flat brush-stroke, I hope to reactivate on the canvas the fascination that the landscape of Ontario has drawn on me.” – Shi Le
