It has been a transitional year for the West End Gallery. In January 2022, Dan & Lana accepted my offer to purchase the West End Gallery Ltd. It has been many years in the making; you might even say a lifetime, as I grew up in the gallery and have spent many years working within it.
My wife, Jennifer, and I have committed ourselves to the stewardship and ongoing growth of the West End Gallery.
Dan and Lana will continue to be a part of the gallery; their contributions may just be arriving from a warm beach in Mexico!
We have a lot to be thankful for this year.
The continuing success of this gallery does not stand on the shoulders of one but many people - Our dedicated team of Amy, Cole, Dallas & Dersu in Victoria and our incredible artist's dedication to continuing to contribute to Canadian art and culture.
We are also incredibly thankful to you! This small business that started in 1975 continues because of the loyal support of our supporters.
Graff's mastery of mixed media is evident in his dramatic paintings that seamlessly weave together the opulence of metallic leafing, the subtlety of transparent colour glazes, and the sleek finish of high-sheen resin. This chemistry of materials breathes life into his canvases, crafting a dance of depth and luminosity that invites the viewer to explore every inch.
We invite you to step closer, let your eyes wander, and allow your mind to engage with the elemental forces that inspire David Graff's extraordinary art.
