Gunter Heinrich and Anthony Sam, principals of Winchester Galleries and Winchester Modern announce a special exhibition and sale to celebrate their twenty years in business. "We are honoured to be marking the occasion of our 20th anniversary with a show of masterworks," said Heinrich, "and we invite everyone to join us."
Winchester Galleries first opened in a small shop at the Oak Bay Junction, then expanded in 1997 and 2009 to its present Oak Bay and downtown locations. Specializing in Canadian, American and international fine art, the galleries have established a reputation for handling important works of art. Winchester Galleries and Winchester Modern take pride in building important historical and contemporary art collections for clients and in representing many of Canada's world-class established and emerging artists and artists estates.
"20/20: A Celebratory Exhibition" presents 110 masterworks curated by Heinrich and his staff. Of note is AC-96-004 by William Perehudoff; Andy Warhol's 1967 Portraits of the Artists; Écran chromatique by Claude Tousignant; La Malbaie, Quebec by A.Y. Jackson; Emily Carr's 1936 Tangle; and the large 1964 mixed media, Sans titre by Jean Paul Riopelle. Other featured artists in the exhibition are Jack Shadbolt, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, David Milne, Joseph Plaskett and David Blackwood.
Fine Art, Winchester Galleries, a 96-page catalogue that has been published to accompany the exhibition, is available through Winchester Galleries and Winchester Modern.
A special preview of the exhibition will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, to be followed by an official opening and celebration at both galleries from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
