Voila! CPC's Paris Show!

Paris came to visit the CPC! We had a fantastical opening for our lovely French artists: Christine Gendre-Bergere, Alecos Fassianos, Philippe Favier, Vittorio Matino, Friedlaender, and Annick Claudé! Their beautiful prints adorned our walls, offering a great variety and a taste of Paris for all to see!

Here are Philippe Favier's "Vertical Embassies", very delicate, simple but refined. The CPC is the only gallery in this entire country with access to this enigmatic artist's work. He was the first contemporary artist in France to be included in the dictionary - imagine that! These photos don't do these prints justice - they are really stunning in person.

Some of Philippe Favier's small prints lined the back hallway of CPC. This is a close-up of "Great Trip to 'Cansanie'".

Another print from Christine's "Filiations" Series: "Simonne (with Henri et Louise) in Biskra"

During the day, the CPC threw open its doors to reveal etching demonstrations. Croissants and madeleines were consumed, and visitors got to watch Duffy show off his drypoint printing techniques!

Le jour est trés bien. Les gravures c'est manifique! Au revoir!
