Salvador Dali Sculptures – New Exhibit

We are very excited to announce the arrival of a collections of spectacular sculptures to Vancouver this summer. Two large-scale original Salvador Dali sculptures are placed on public display for the enjoyment of all residents and guests to the city. One of the new sculptures, Woman Aflame, stands tall at nearly 12 feet, 3.60 meters high and takes the place of Dance of Time, the iconic melting clock which stood at the entrance to Lot 19 in 2017.

Reflections: Inspired by the Masters

Reflections: Inspired by the Masters

Chali-Rosso Art Gallery presents a unique exhibition of select historical masterworks from our private collection, accompanied by an ensemble of contemporary artworks they inspired.

The gallery has partnered with some of the finest, accomplished, local artists to create a group show dedicated solely to exploring how art and artists are connected, through time and space, due to infinite influence and inspiration.

A select group of talented artists has been challenged to create works of art that are directly inspired by any of the masterworks in Chali-Rosso’s gallery collection. This includes original works by Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Miro, Chagall, Motherwell, Hirst, Lichtenstein, Warhol and many others.
The contemporary works will be exhibited next to their inspirational works by the Masters.
This exciting project aims to illustrate how relevant the art of the Modern Masters continues to be and how their influence can still be felt in the contemporary art of today. In addition to the academic value, the goal of the exhibition is to gain a visual experience about how art is continual and successive.

The project has been endorsed by the MOV, Museum of Vancouver, dedicated to inspire a deeper understanding of Vancouver through stories, objects and shared experiences. 

EXHIBITION: MARCH 10 – 24, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 10, from 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm 
ALL DAY OPEN HOUSE: MARCH 11, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm
