Joanne Gauthier’s much-anticipated solo exhibition of new paintings opens Saturday October 7. Joanne was introduced to the life of an artist from an early age and worked diligently pursue that passion at the University of Quebec. Her dedication and endless creativity have sustained her throughout her career and are what drives her to continually push her own boundaries. In this recent series of paintings lush floral imagery is principally inspired by colour. “I make small sketches that I reproduce to scale. When I apply color, I want to create color contrasts often compared to the central color of the composition. Creating interest around this color and then making it vibrate to the maximum until an almost surreal atmosphere emerges.”

Brent R. Laycock
Solo Exhibition of New Work
October 14 - 26, 2017
10337 124 Street, Edmonton, AB

Please join critically acclaimed landscape artist Brent Laycock as he presents his latest solo exhibition of new work at the West End Gallery, Saturday October 14 from 1-4 pm. A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts as well as the Society of Canadian Artists, Brent Laycock received his MFA and BFA from Brigham Young University, Utah. Highlights of his career include having a watercolour presented to Queen Elizabeth II for her Majesty’s Royal Collection and creating a design for the roof of the Hyatt Regency Hotel ballroom in Calgary. Exhibition continues through October 26.

"The majority of my paintings are landscapes. Although I have experimented with many other forms and subjects, it is the interaction with the land that continually fuels my interest. Perhaps this passion comes from my background as a farm boy or perhaps it comes from just living where the sky, mountains, prairie and water have a continual impact in my perceptions. In the landscape, I see the spiritual connection between ourselves and the divine. I only hope to transmit some of its power to uplift the soul." - Brent R. Laycock

While acknowledging his education and technical training in Fine Art at the Okanagan University College in Kelowna, Rod largely considers himself self-taught. His vibrant patches of colour, the rugged terrain of the Western landscape, and snowy rinks with children at play capture a uniquely Canadian cultural identity. Rod has departed from his previous colour palette by making one small change to his under-painting, producing dramatic effects, resulting in fresh and vibrant new landscapes. “What initially inspired me to paint was how we all see the world differently. I wanted to create my own visual language that could be used to portray the Canadian landscape in all of its rugged subtleties.”

Grant Leier & Nixie Barton
Exhibition of New Work
October 28 - November 9, 2017
10337 124 Street, Edmonton, AB

The West End Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of new work from beloved west coast artist Grant Leier. Please join Grant at the opening, Saturday, October 28 between 1-4pm. Grant Leier’s unique and exotic still life paintings are rich in colour and pattern. All artwork subject to pre-sale. Exhibition continues through November 9.

“I’ve never been interested in painting the landscape. I feel a need to inject intense colour, pattern, and a sense of celebration into everything I paint. I want the ordinary to be exotic, the black dog to be red, the pears to be blue. My focus has been colour, people, animals and… still life. More than anything I want my images to evoke a sense of well-being and goodness… I believe that documenting social and political concerns in the visual arts is important, but I feel it is equally important to pursue the creation of work that simply makes you feel good.” - Grant Leier

The grandeur of British Columbia’s backyard provides Steven Armstrong with infinite inspiration: rocky coastlines, sunlit meadows, breezy bays, and majestic mountains come alive on his canvases steeped in colour, light, and space. In his attempt to create paintings that, while built from recognizable places, will be suggestive of a broader human experience, we enter a dialogue on an emotional and enduring level – lone objects come to represent more than simply trees, rocks, earth, and sky, they suggest places that carry meaning for us as individuals. “How do you communicate the experience of exploring a costal rain forest, of hiking to an alpine lake, or watching the wild Pacific waves roll in? I grew up fascinated by the way we conceptualize and express our relationship with the natural environment and with one another – that sense of connection. I approach painting as a form of communicating an ever-changing relationship with place. It’s a dialogue, really; a conversation into which the viewer is invited.”
