Welcome to the West End Gallery
Join us at the opening of, Life in Montréal, the latest exhibition of oil paintings by Robert Savignac. The opening reception takes place Saturday, October 13, 2018 between 1 - 4 pm. Please note Mr. Savignac is unable to attend his opening in Edmonton. The exhibition continues until October, 25, 2018.
Robert Savignac was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1946 and grew up to study at Vieux-Montreal CEGEP and Université du Quebec. Savignac lovingly paints the chaotic splendor and lush abundance of urban gardens. In intriguing corners where the natural world meets with his imagination, he creates a beautiful oasis apart from the real world. Flowers spill from balconies, vines creep up the side of a stone wall, while dappled sunlight plays in light and shadow. He is able to masterfully play with perspective, composition and a jewel-like palette to create contemporary portraits of floral space. Robert Savignac is an artist who graciously allows us to savor his love of painting. His works are featured in numerous private collections in Canada and Europe and is one of Canada's most sought after artists.

Sensational Victoria based artist Ken Faulks unveils his much anticipated collection of new paintings at West End Gallery. Employing the methods and media popular with the Group of Seven, oil paint on small wood panels, Ken takes to painting outside, “en plein air”, like no other artist finding it both challenging and tremendously satisfying. Back in the studio he expertly renders these smaller “plein air” paintings into impressive larger works on panel. Lush brushstrokes, a bold palette and a keen compositional sense have become synonymous with his style. Grand skies, log strewn beaches and other familiar landscapes from around southern Vancouver Island have delighted and excited both new and established collectors. Please direct all artwork enquiries to our Victoria location 250.388.0009 / 1.877.388.0009
