VAIL — Galerie Zuger in Vail welcomes artist Andre Desjardins Friday and Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. In Desjardins’ work, the essence of life emerges with every brush stroke, every texture and nuance, transforming the empty canvas into a statement about the mysteries of life, love and our universe itself. His thoughts are made real and hidden faces break free from the chaos of life, giving an almost serene and tranquil feeling, while muted and subtle colors coax one into a dreamlike state of viewing the mysteries that Desjardins has revealed.

“I speak of interior peace, of fulfillment,” he said. “Whether it is through painting or through sculpture, I endeavor to transcend the mere representation of a subject to approach the interiority, the spirit.”

Desjardins devotes his time, energy and passion to translating emotions into images of timeless beauty and humanity as the founder of what he calls “visual emotionism.” Stop by Galerie Zuger today and Friday to see f how his style fuses the figurative with the abstract and tells the stories of those he has encountered.

Galerie Zuger is located on the second level at the Solaris Plaza in Vail Village. For more information, call 970-476-5619 or visit
