Spring Collection: An Exhibition of New Work
10337 124 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta
May 16, 2020 until May 22, 2020
The West End Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Brent Laycock
opening on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Much of his landscape painting expresses his
love of the panoramic expanse of earth and sky which he develops into lyrical compositions. He
works using a fluid, spontaneous style where the paint is applied in bold direct strokes rather
than conforming to a preliminary drawing. In his painting, communicating an emotional
response is more important than detailed representation.
Between the Lines: An Exhibition of New Work by Greta Guzek
1203 Broad Street, Victoria, British Columbia
June 6 until June 18, 2020
Greta Guzek is celebrating 20 years and her 11th solo exhibition Between the Lines June 6 – 18, 2020, with West End Gallery! 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 paintings capture 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.
The West End Gallery is pleased to present Fraser Brinsmead's premiere exhibition in Victoria opening July 4, 2020! "Big Cities, Private Moments" is a collection of original paintings based on cities from Fraser's travels including: New York, San Francisco, Vancouver and Victoria. Drawn to the diversity of the urban landscape, Fraser is consistently enthralled by the bounty of personal connections found within the larger environment.
Salt Spring Island artist Jeannette Sirois presents her second solo exhibition with West End Gallery. Jeannette’s painstakingly detailed botanical drawings are a sight to behold. Spending thousands of hours in the studio, her coloured pencil pieces on paper are a testament to her dedication, patience and passion. Using nature as her guide, Jeannette expertly renders the intricate blooms plucked from her garden, including tulips, irises and poppies.
