"Cinq en Seine" opens in two weeks at the Etienne de Causans Galerie (25 rue de Seine) and runs until April 20. The exhibit features the work of five internationally recognized artists—two sculptors, a painter, and two photographers. All Eye Prefer Paris readers are invited to attend the opening vernissage on Monday evening, April 11 from 6–9 pm. Join us for the festivities.
As one of the artists, I welcome you to the exhibit and am pleased to offer a sneak preview of the show. It's always a soul-searching challenge to choose work for an exhibit. I'm focusing (no pun intended) on images from three recent series, but there are a few old favorites woven into the show as well.
Yes, it's true. I have become addicted to the circus. So I'll be showing work from my new "The Circus is (Always) in Town" series. I also have a passion for Paris in the snow (a rarity these days, but, fortunately, I went wild during the snows a few years ago so that we can be reminded how beautiful Paris is covered in white). And, finally, I am sharing the "Free Floating" series, the result of a few years of taking deep breaths to go under water in swimming pools to capture grace, suspension of time, and defiance of gravity in all its beautiful and mystical glory.
Please join sculptors Kent Ravenscroft and Françoise Baron, painter Nadine Coleman, photographer Raye, and me for a celebration of the arts . . . and an appreciation of the spirit of community.
