Contributor Kim Kerr pays a visit to Brights Gallery, a bastion of great art (and good taste!) in the heart of Blue Mountain Village
Located in Blue Mountain Village, a visit to Brights Gallery is a must-do when visiting this beautiful part of theGeorgian Bay area area. Home to a fine collection of original Canadian and international art, Brights is as much a mini-art gallery as it is a retail outlet.
There’s no pressure to buy, just professional, helpful art enthusiasts eager to share their expertise and enthusiasm.
If you’re looking for a piece of work by a particular artist or in a particular style, you won’t be disappointed. Among the eclectic artworks represented, there’s an obvious love and appreciation of the Canadian landscape and the great outdoors.
Winter activities like skiing and snowboarding feature heavily, naturally, and are an obvious indication of the influence these sports have had on artists like Luc Deschamps and Angela Morgan.
Brights Gallery Has Local Artists on Display
Lovers of the Georgian Bay area in particular will want to check out the work of Mark Berens. Born in Montreal and now a resident of The Blue Mountains, Berens’ remarkable art will strike a chord with Canadians due to its emphasis on the great outdoors – the trees, water and rock that so define the area, executed with a subtle nod to the style of Canada’s famous Group of Seven artists.
Brights Gallery offers a variety of art related services, too, including in-home or office evaluations, as well as the opportunity to spend time with a piece of work before making a purchase. Other services include custom framing, installation, appraisals and restoration, as well as art sourcing, portraits and special commissions.
