The Artym Gallery is very pleased to present a special show and book release this May long weekend.

On May 21 at 10 a.m., a show of 35 paintings from the estate of Armand F. Vallée, which have never before been for sale, will grace the walls of the Artym Gallery.

A new book of Armand’s life and paintings, titled “Armand F. Vallée”, will be available for the first time, with author Elinor Ewert in attendance signing books from noon until 3 p.m.

Armand F. Vallée was born in Austria in 1921, beginning a life full of challenges, hardships, and inspiration, which included fighting and being injured in World War II, its devastating aftermath, travelling extensively throughout Europe and North America and finding and marrying his soulmate, Beatrice.

When Armand passed away in February of 2009, he had been enthusiastically involved in the creation of a book about his life and painting.

Author Elinor Ewert interviewed him exhaustively for this publication, and the Artym Gallery selected works spanning his entire career to create a beautiful and thoughtful homage to the life and art of Armand F. Vallée.

The paintings that will be featured in counterpoint to the book release include 35 original paintings that have never before been available.

A part of Armand’s private collection, these works include paintings from some of his most famous and interesting series, including works from the Calgary area, Northern Alberta, the Anza Borrego Desert, the Lascaux caves in France, totems from the West coast, and, for the first time, a selection of Surreal works.

For everyone: collectors of Vallée’s work, long-time admirers.

Take this special opportunity to view some of his most special original works, that have never before been available.

Join them on Saturday, May 21 for this special event: paintings become available at 10 a.m. (no pre-sales!), and author Elinor Ewert will be signing books from noon until 3 p.m. The show continues until May 29th, and you can view the show online at www.artymgalley.com
