Art Exhibition: French Eyes on Boston

French Cultural Center

Advance Registration Required at: https://frenchculturalcenter.org/events/french-eyes-on-boston/ The French Cultural Center is proud to host the show "French Eyes on Boston," a collection of portraits and landscapes painted by Marguerite Wibaux, who moved to Boston from France in 2017. Marguerite’s landscapes marry the Renaissance perspective tradition with an American expressionist approach. The paintings engage with the artist’s perceptions of various points of view in Boston. From a pictorial standpoint, the landscape series explores various mediums and techniques, mixing oil and spray paint with acrylic and collage. But what is a city without its people? The second component of Marguerite’s work explores Boston’s youth through portraiture. These paintings aim to pay tribute to a rich diversity of styles, personalities, genres, origins, and cultures in a visually thriving and energizing series. Join us on January 25 at 7:00 PM for the gallery opening, which will include a presentation of Marguerite’s work and a reception with light refreshments. Registration required.
