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. Utilizing the intricate design and vivid colours, her artwork capture the idyllic qualities that are intrinsic to the serenity of coastal life and nature.
“Viewers in front of my paintings most often remark that the first thing to strike them is the emotional impact of the painting … the second response is to the light in the painting, and, of course my paintings are all about emotion and light. If the viewer has felt the emotion I felt when I painted the piece, then we have clicked.”-Bill Webb
Blu Smith's artwork has always been an experience to behold. Broad, passionate brush strokes, intense reds and blues complimented by hues of soft greens and purple take you on an introspective journey into a landscape or abstract expression of Blu's creation.
