Francoise Nielly’s opening
After weeks of waiting, we finally held last Wednesday the opening of Françoise Nielly’s special exhibition, her largest exhibition to date outside France!
A colorful event
Francoise Nielly was present to talk to art lovers and collectors from Quebec City and the surrounding areas. Guests were treated to delicious food and bubbles while admiring Nielly’s brand new pop art paintings. The colorful portraits represent Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol, Che Guevara, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie and many others. (Click here to see all the paintings!)
The evening was a huge success, with many guests on site who greatly enjoyed their evening – and unfortunately many disappointed people who could not be with us!
As previously announced, Porsche Quebec joined us in our Nielly Fever with two beautiful cars adorned with the artworks of the painter, stationed in front of the gallery. The cars stayed outside during the opening to welcome the guests and give them a taste of the creations to see inside!
The presence of Porsche was not the only surprise: Francoise Nielly was with us not only at the opening, but also the following Saturday and Sunday! Indeed, the painter returned to the gallery for several hours to meet art lovers, making those who could not be present on Wednesday very happy!
In the media
The largest exhibition of Françoise Nielly outside France has not failed to attract the attention of Quebec media. The newspaper Le Soleil announced our opening in a special article, quoting the artist: “In a face, there are perspectives everywhere: the eye, the nose, the features. It is a complex structure. Many people try to copy me, but it does not work. This balance must be worn in itself. “
The TVA team also went to the gallery to do an interview with the French artist for the art section of the TVA news:
