Are you ready for the weekend? Do you have a cozy cottage to visit to stay warm and relax during this wet and chilly fall weather? Whether you're staying home, or making a trip this weekend, we have two new paintings by our newest artist, Christian Bergeron, that would be stunning in any location. His colourful, prismatic villas lend a relaxed atmosphere to any room, whether you're taking some time out from a busy week, or dreaming of plans for the weeks ahead.
We have a new artist at Crescent Hill Gallery! Born in the Province of Quebec, Canada, Christian Bergeron is an artist painter with more than forty years of experience. His works are shown in the most beautiful private and corporate art collections in Canada, USA and Europe.
In the past ten years, he has been developing and perfecting a modern (prismatic) style of his own. Known for the mastery of the spatula, his only tool, and for his bright colors and contrasts, he became an associate member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston in 2007 where he exhibits his works regularily.
Christian Bergeron is an artist in constant evolution inspired by his many travels around the world who masters the nuances and visual compositions like no other.
Today is the day to come visit Crescent Hill Gallery, meet world renowned artist Maya Eventov, and see local artist Bob Arrigo painting live from 7-10pm! Come celebrate Fall Colour at our annual autumn event, featuring the newest works of our many talented artists.

It looks like it's going to be another lovely hot day out there! We hope you have a chance to kick back and relax for a while to enjoy the day.
We have a beautiful new collection of Maya Eventov's floral paintings! These pieces are just lovely, and a great way to add some everlasting flowers to your home. Maya's works evoke feelings of happiness, well-being and joy of life. She wants to share with you the warmth of the afternoon sun and the heat of the sidewalk, the smell of exotic flowers and the taste of ripe fruit. She wants you to wander the roads of Tuscany with her or enjoy a quiet moment in an overstuffed armchair in a romantic setting somewhere in Spain.
Just in! A stunning new painting by Mark Berens! The surface quality of his landscapes is thick, creamy, and rich in the palette of nature’s liveliness. Berens is particularly noted for his ability to capture depth and light through textured dabs of a well-calculated colour palette. Upon viewing a Berens Oil, it is almost as if one could reach out and pick up one of his fallen leaves. Through closer inspection, the quality of the paint reveals itself in a somewhat abstract manner, creating a unique bilateral dynamic for viewing.
We have two lovely new landscape paintings by Steve Tracy today! These pieces are just stunning and must be seen in person. Currently, Steve lives in London Ontario where he has donated his time to a recent public art endeavor in the downtown core. “I have great interest in London and want to see it thrive” he says, “I want to help the London core to be brilliant and revived – with glorious retail, thriving businesses and healthy lifestyles.” Steve was also commissioned to paint one of the 12 violins for Orchestra London’s “Painted Violins: Strung out on the Arts” soirée at the Museum of London.
We have some lovely new paintings by Marie-Claude Boucher! Marie-Claude maintains a palette of primary and pure colours. She has developed her distinct style with the use of spontaneous and confident brush strokes: “I am not looking for perfection in the details, but rather simplicity in my settings.” It is in the countryside where she finds her inspiration, often interpreted through welcoming red-roofed houses and characteristic clotheslines. The liveliness in her painting style allows us to appreciate her personal zest for the act of painting, and her colourful approach bears her inimitable signature.
To describe the theme of Peter Panov's paintings, you must enter the door into his vast and incredible imagination. He depicts Paris around the 1920s, and elaborately decorates and expands on the idea of "Man and his City". His characters are recognizable, familiar and yet convey the essence of individual memory and history. Panov's images are alive with narratives detailing of endless fantasy, joy, musical tales and intriguing places.
Flowers are starting to bloom everywhere, including right here at Crescent Hill Gallery! We have some lovely new paintings by Emilja Pasagic in the gallery today, so be sure to come by and check them out! Depending on her mood and what is available in her studio Emilija can incorporate as many as a half dozen elements into each painting. Her technique involves a unique blending of bee's wax and oil paint applied to paper, board or canvas. In this contemporary application of the ancient technique of encaustic, the paint is sometimes blended into the hot wax, burnt into it or simply painted upon it. She often fuses paper and cloth into the pigments to create textures, and uses gold leaf and various gel mediums to add unique antique effects. The paintings take on depth and mystery with a balanced tension between texture and form.
