Christian Bergeron

“Saveur Internationale”

An Exhibition of Contemporary, Prismatic, and Traditional art.

Artiste-peintre canadien, Christian Bergeron

Internationally renowned Canadian artist Christian Bergeron will be headlining a new exhibit at the Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn, Ontario. It will be an exciting exhibition of international caliber, showing never seen pieces from his past 2 years of travel.

The paintings highlight some of his excursions, from Romantic Paris, where he rented a studio for the past 2 years, to inspiring Provence, where he experimented with softer tones dictated by the spring light. Christian also travelled to the Côte d’Azur, Spain (home of Dali), Rome, and New York, following in the steps of great painters. He spent last winter in Rome, away from the harsh weather of our country, to paint outside again.

Christian’s work will contain his always successful prismatic and figurative work, and will also contain select pieces of contemporary art. Among some of his favorites are his contemporary pieces.

Christian will be in attendance at the opening of the show on Saturday June 27th, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

Artist Bio

Christian has more than forty years experience. His works can be found in the finest corporate and private collections from coast to coast in Canada, the United States and several European countries.

At a very early age he demonstrated an aptitude for figurative art. Self taught, he developed his art under the influence of the great painters in Quebec, such as Francesco Iacurto, for whom he was a student and model. Over a ten year period, he developed and perfected his personal style, named “prismatic”. Prismatic gives another dimension to the painting by increasing the effect of light at different angles, producing spectacular perspectives.

Known for his vibrant colors, contrast, light, and the control of his spatula, he became a well known artist and an associate member of the Copley Boston Society of Arts in 2007, where he exhibits regularly.

Christian Bergeron is everything ... but the half-measure. He is an artist who is constantly changing, and is inspired by his many travels around the world. He plays with the nuances and visual compositions in a masterly way.

“As a consequence the same painting can have a very different appearance as the light changes during the course of a day. Art should be dynamic. It should move you both emotionally and in another sense, visually.” he adds.

The exhibit opens Saturday June 27th. And the artist Christian Bergeron will be in attendance from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, providing a rare opportunity to meet the “artiste-peintre” who makes his home in Quebec.

The gallery is located 3 km east of Buckhorn on the south side of Highway 36. Open 7 days a week, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Also open by appointment.
