Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery October Exhibit

Oct 28, 2016 @ 6:00pm   Events, Member Events

 Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery
invites you to come meet
Martine-Alison Chabert
A solo exhibit featuring
our France artist and her
Petite Femmes
Please join us for wine and Cheese on First Friday October 7 from 5:00 – 8:00.
This exhibit runs through October 28.
Martine-Alison Chabert paints from the heart. Her little women (Petite Femmes) tell the story of her life. Placed in fantasy worlds of lush greenery, that can appear in every possible color, les petite femmes are accompanied by at least one animal which usually depicts the male. Toucans pop their heads from tree tops and bushes. Tiny little bugs and critters with hairlike legs appear for those taking a closer look. It is a fantasy treasure hunt of whimsical details.
Chabert’s oil paintings take approximately one month to complete. When she begins her creativity is in full motion. What is in her heart or on her mind becomes the subject that pours out on canvas with great detail. All is from her imagination, even down to the design of the clothing and folds that drape the curves of her women. She retreats to the solitude of her studio to “design” her next composition. In the weeks that follow with brushes that have few hairs, she begins to develop and bring vibrant color to her imaginary worlds. By studying her works in order, one could read the story of her life.
Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery is truly
Uniting the World Through Art
Our Studio Exhibit, also opening on October 7, is a real treat this month. Amanda Edwards brings us colorful mosaics that have been tediously created with joy and love. “Glass allows me to take a thousand little pieces of color and turn them into a flowing representation of my very active imagination.” Edwards has many public mosaics, including Boston Children’s Hospital, Maine’s Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House in Maine and Ohio.
Please join us for these two wonderful exhibits along with works of 25 artists from 10 different countries. Both artists will be present for the opening. Martine-Alison Chabert, visiting from France, will be available at the gallery for a few weeks. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet this lovely creative lady.
Where: Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery, 48 Free Street
When: October 7-28, 2016
