Enjoy an amazing exhibit of Marguerite Castaing works. Born in 1900 in southern France to a family of painters, Castaing had a long career as an artist starting at 16 when she became a member of the French Salon where she exhibited for over two decades. She studied under renowned artists Paul Albert Laurens and Pierre Bonnard, and 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. On display for the first time in over a decade, this exhibition of her work showcases over 80 drawings, paintings and pastels detailing her life as a passionate female artist throughout the 20th Century.
This collection of her paintings will be on display now through August 21. Admission is free and gallery hours are Tuesdays through Sundays from 1-4 p.m. For more information, visit www.staaa.org
