Welcome to the West End Gallery
Irene Klar’s much anticipated fifth solo exhibition opens Saturday September 15. Inspired by water, whether it be the sea or rivers near and far, Irene focuses on the people who rely on it- those people who make the water a timeless source of life, travel and trade with the canoe being the prominent fixture. More than just carrying her blanket-wrapped figures, Irene transforms the canoe into the foundation of each piece. As her style evolves closer to abstraction, the canoe is deconstructed to its linear element and acts as the focal point for the composition. Recognized throughout North America, Irene has painted commissions for: Amnesty International Canada, Amnesty International USA and the Trans-Canada Trail. She is also widely represented in both public and corporate collections.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday September 15 with artist in attendance from 1-4pm.

Please join Rod Charlesworth at opening reception of, “Colourful Horizons”, solo exhibition of new oil paintings which opens at the West End Gallery in Edmonton. Rod will be in attendance Saturday, September 29 from 1 to 4 pm. This exhibition continues through October 10, 2018. All Artwork subject to pre-sale.
Drawing from the iconic Canadian shield terrain of the Northwest Territories and Northern Ontario, Charlesworth has created an exhibition that shows the best of the awe-inspiring north. Blending techniques from the impressionist school with Group of Seven sensibilities, Charlesworth’s splashes of bright colour perfectly describe the wild texture of rough evergreen branches and glassy lakes in the late evening light. Charlesworth’s paintings are a love letter to the essence of the Canadian landscape. Anyone gazing at a Rod Charlesworth painting of solstice light over the land would have to agree.
