Greta Guzek Between the Lines June 6 – 18, 2020
Greta Guzek is celebrating 20 years and her 11th solo exhibition, which runs June 6 - 18, 2020, at West End Gallery in Victoria! Greta’s joyous and whimsical West Coast paintings are familiar both in their stunning beauty and their intimate charm. Greta utilizes intricate design and vivid colours; her artwork captures the idyllic qualities that are intrinsic to the serenity of coastal life and nature.
This latest collection of paintings also draws inspiration from the poems of Robert Perry, whose anthology “The Arbutus Islands”; provide insight into life on the West Coast. By having a different poem displayed with each painting, Greta hopes that it will enhance the viewer’s appreciation and understanding of each painting and offer a deeper glimpse into her artistic vision.
I live on the edge of a natural paradise where I witness, daily, the heartbeat of the earth; it is radiant. I found these same sentiments in the poems of Robert Perry, whose anthology “The Arbutus Islands” became my focus point for these paintings, seeing between the lines.
The artwork belonging to Between the Lines is physically located at our gallery in Victoria, British Columbia. To view Between the Lines, an Exhibition of New Work by Greta Guzek online, please follow this link to the exhibition page.

Gabryel Harrison's new paintings offer an harmonious and meditative break from the chaos and uncertainty of the modern world. In both her studio practice and her poetry, Gabryel invites the viewer to slow down, to perceive art as an object of contemplation or evidence of wonder. It is her belief that this simple engagement can be a radical act.
