West End Gallery Victoria Closing

Dear Friends,

As West End Gallery turns to a new chapter in its history, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. This year marks a significant milestone - THIRTY years of being a part of a thriving arts community in Victoria, BC. We are filled with gratitude for the past and excitement for what's to come, but with a heavy heart, we must announce the upcoming closure of our Victoria Gallery on the corner of Broad and View Street.


The West End Gallery has been more than just a space for art; it has been home to memories, achievements, and the celebration of Canadian talent. As we prepare for this transition, we are immensely proud of our impact and the connections we've fostered in the beautiful city of Victoria, BC.

As we focus on what is to come, we renew our commitment to our talented artists and our gallery in Edmonton, which will soon be celebrating its 50th anniversary! We hope you will join us in toasting brighter days ahead and celebrating this momentous occasion together.

We invite you to our final Annual Garden Collection, which opens on Saturday, March 16. This exhibition will run until April 27, and we sincerely hope you will stop by and share some fond memories of our time in Victoria. Thank you for continuing to be part of our story. Here's to continuing this remarkable journey, filled with more art, inspiration, and the deep, enduring connections that art brings to our lives.

With heartfelt thanks,

Matthew, Dan, & Lana Hudon

Behind the Blooms: The Making of Breath of Life

05 March, 2024 3 min read

Breath of Life began with a drawing, a simple yet powerful blueprint for what would become a life-sized celebration of nature. In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
