La Vie En Bleu: The Life & Art of Marguerite Castaing

On display for the first time in over a decade, this exhibition of Marguerite Castaing’s work showcases over 80 drawings, paintings and pastels detailing her life as a passionate female artist throughout the 20th Century.

November 4 – December 31, 2020.  Gallery Hours:  Tuesday-Sunday, 1:00pn-4:00pm

First Friday Art Walk — November 6 & December 4, 2020, 5:00pm-7:30pm.  $5.00 Entry Donation.

Born in 1900 in southern France to a family of painters, Marguerite Castaing had a long career as an artist.  At 16 she became a member of the French Salon where she exhibited for over two decades. While living in Paris, she studied under renowned artists Paul Albert Laurens and Pierre Bonnard.  She rubbed shoulders with influential writers, collectors, and critics like Pulitzer Prize winner Louis Bromfield.

Marguerite’s work, Impressionistic in style, elicits passion and precision. The artist was inspired by the people and places that surrounded her, from family and friends to the rolling landscapes of southern France, and eventually the colorful seasons of New England.
