  • French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France

  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    A Summer of Inspiration at Agora Gallery

    The weather is heating up, and so is the atmosphere at Agora Gallery as we present art that has the ability to inspire and energize. The French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France features artworks that seem to have a life of their own, infused as they are with the passion and power of the artists who created them. Delightfully poised between the simplicity of frankness and the complexity of a conscious awareness of the world, the works speak in a language that is both compelling and persuasive. In Pathway to Abstraction, artists glory in the wonder of life and their own comprehension of it, passing on a message of optimism and understanding to us through their work. These works will capture your attention and enthrall your emotions, bringing you in to become an active interpreter of what you see. Sensorial Realms introduces us to a sense of mystery that seems to infect and enliven the banal and the everyday. The essence of creativity anima

  • Description:

    Les petits français rendent les mamans américaines jalouses. Et ce n’est pas Pamela Druckerman qui me contredira. Selon cette American Mom expatriée au pays de Gavroche et ancienne journaliste du Wall Street Journal, les « Bébés made in France » restent assis patiemment dans les dîners de plusieurs plats au restaurant alors que leurs parents discutent pendant des heures et mangent avec appétit le même plat que leurs enfants. Ils jouent joyeusement dans le parc sans avoir recours à Maman pour les surveiller. Ce sont des écoliers indépendants, qui travaillent dur avec un fort sentiment de famille et de fierté nationale. Alors cet été, les parents new yorkais qui cherchent à donner à leurs propres enfants une dose de ce je-ne-sais-quoi d’éducation à la française, ne cherchez pas plus loin que le Bleu Blanc Rouge Summer Camp.

    Pour la troisième fois cette année, je réitère cette joyeuse immersion dans la culture française. Une fois encore, les bambins de tous niveaux de français – du « mes p
