Situated in a heritage building in the heart of Gastown, Vancouver, Baron Gallery and Studio is a relative newcomer to the Vancouver art scene. Baron Gallery has a New York sensibility with a strong appreciation for contemporary art and its history.
“The acquisition of knowledge from the arts opens yet another venue of understanding and pleasure from which the participant may enhance their own creativity in Life’s Journey.”
-Rosemary Baron Swingle, gallery owner.
Very early in childhood, Rosemary Baron’s appreciation of art and architecture was formed by unusual opportunities, influencing her wide spectrum of the cultural arts beyond traditional boundaries. Growing up in New York City within a family of artists and artisans influenced her education and career development in the arts.
It is Baron’s intention to break the tenet that cultural arts are for the select few, but rather the arts should be available to everyone. Baron Gallery offers fresh and innovative ways to connect the exhibiting artist and the audience. Exhibiting and guest artists will offer lectures and hands-on workshops and some may remain in residence while their work is on exhibit at Baron Gallery. Baron believes this direct connection with the artist will forge an intimate and greater understanding of art and the artist.
