2018 Summer Exhibitions Opening Reception
July 11, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of our Summer 2018 Exhibitions:
LOOK, LOOK, LOOK…A PLAYFUL BOOK
OPULENCE: NOT EVERYTHING THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD
Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 6-8 pm
This exhibition offers a journey through works of artists whom childhood enchanted and who want to enchant children; the discovery of a creative sector abounding and lively yet little-known; a unique view of art books for children from reflection and the collection of the Association Les Trois Ourses.
Our 2018 Artist Members exhibition is of artwork that looks behind the velvet curtain, in particular at our current economic, social, political, ecological, and cultural issues/concerns. There are also playful works that have multiple lawyers of meaning and interpretations.
