Since 1975, the West End Gallery has showcased the works of leading Canadian painters and glass artists. Established by Dan and Lana Hudon in the West end of Edmonton, AB, the gallery has grown to include their son, Matthew, and a second location in Victoria, BC was opened in 1994. Although the majority of our artists' works are presented in both galleries, the expansion has allowed the West End Gallery to cater to the specific art needs of its clients in both western provinces. The West End Gallery is honoured to commemorate its 40th anniversary this April, coinciding with our move to a new location. We are leaving our well-known Jasper Avenue locale after 35 years to join the highly regarded 124th Street Arts District, at 10337-124 street, in Princeton Place.
The West End gallery has an impressive roster of renowned, contemporary Canadian artists - many internationally recognized and considered important acquisitions to dedicated collectors. Our painters range from photo-realism to abstract, including figurative, landscape, and still life, encompassing a variety of media. Our outstanding and innovative glass artists distinguish themselves with their talent, technique, and high quality work. They present an array of remarkable glassworks with a multitude of form and function that can only be described as inspiring, alluring, and exhilarating.
The West End Gallery entertains an educated and discerning clientele, hosting solo exhibitions as well as group and themed shows for veterans and newcomers alike to the Canadian art scene. It is our mandate to continue to provide an exceptional selection of Canadian painters and glass artists in the West End Gallery. Our collectors will always find works of lasting value and receive the very best in professional service from our dedicated staff.
To honour this anniversary milestone we have organized a special group show. Our artists have been commissioned to submit one major piece of fine art to commemorate our 40th Anniversary Collection Exhibition, coinciding with the Grand Opening of our new location. Participating artists include Claudette Castonguay, Ken Faulks, Peter Shostak, W.H. Webb, Annabelle Marquis, Guy Roy, Rod Charlesworth, Bev Rodin, Raynald Leclerc, Paul Jorgensen, Peter Wyse, Grant Leier, Brent Laycock, Shi Le, Ron Parker, Ariane Dubois, Michael Rozenvain, Joanne Gauthier, Fraser Brinsmead, Irene Klar, Jean-Gabriel Lambert, Élène Gamache, Gordon Lewis, Richard Cole, Robert Savignac, Glen Semple, David Thai, and Paull Rodrigue.
We invite you to join us at the Grand Opening Reception on Saturday, April 18, from 1-4 pm at our new gallery location, 10337-124 Street. All artwork is subject to pre sale. Please direct all purchase inquires to our Edmonton gallery.
