Welcome to the West End Gallery
Quebec based artist Alain Bédard presents his second solo exhibition of new paintings in Victoria. Inspired by his travels in the south of France this latest collection of work is a visual diary of his journey from Paris to the Côte d’Azur. Capturing the breathtaking scenery and je ne sais quoi associated with the French way of life, these paintings transport the viewer to the sunnier and carefree days of summer. Ever the diligent artist, Alain has consciously pushed his own boundaries to continue his artistic evolution. Moving away from the tightly controlled aspects of his painting he has introduced a looser more impressionistic feel. The resulting canvases are awash with colour, light and atmosphere marking this collection as the culmination of his professional career. "It's the most important exhibition I've done in 40 years of work ... I think people will love [it]... there's something for everyone." - Alain Bédard. Exhibition continues through February 28, 2019. All artwork is subject to pre-sale.
The West End Gallery is pleased to present, "Why Not?" a solo exhibition of new works by Guy Roy opening on Saturday, February 23 from 10 am – 5pm.
Painting primarily on site in the Amiante and Charlevoix regions of Quebec, Guy Roy describes himself as a ‘colorist painter.’ Light yet vibrant colours, deep contrast, and grand canvases characterize his landscape paintings. The stronger the contrast, the more the light explodes. When asked why the trees that he painted were pink, Guy responded, “Why not?”
Exhibition continues through March 7, 2019. All artwork is subject to pre-sale. Please note, Guy Roy is unable to join us for the opening of his exhibition in Edmonton.
Please direct all artwork enquiries to our Edmonton location 780.488.4892 / 855.488.4892 or via email email@example.com
