The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross will present the paintings of French artist "Gabrielle Thierry in the exhibition Gabrielle Thierry: The Musicality of the Water Lilies/La Musicalité des Nymphs" from August 30 through October 7, 2017. An opening reception, with the artist in attendance, will take place from 5 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12th.
Thierry's series was inspired by her rediscovery of the Water Lilies landscapes of Claude Monet. With special permission to paint on site in the Musée de lOrangerie in Paris, she translated eight of Monets landscapes into colored musical scores. Her recent work has concentrated on visual representations of music, and strives to show interactions between color, form, notes, and musical compositions.
