Lower East SIde Events..save the date


Save the date !
You are invited to our grand Re-Opening at our gallery space on the Lower East Side
When:  Friday March 1st, 2013 from 6:30 - 8 pm
Where: 83 Orchard street, New York, NY 10002


The Muriel Guépin Gallery is pleased to present "Legacy", a new show featuring the artworks of Anne Geoffroy and Isabel Brito-Farre.


Anne Geoffroy's painstakingly rendered drawings and sculptures evoke her lost childhood, and suggest a cumbersome family legacy laden with secrets. In search of an identity, Geoffrey questions how and what we transmit to future generations. She refers to some of her drawings as "les Fantômes," or the ghosts, and to some of her sculptures as "les Héritières," the heiresses. These pieces have a haunted quality, and carry the weight of her own past and that of her family.
Isabel Brito-Farre, a native Spanish artist who lived in New York but recently moved back to Spain, makes stitched drawings of Americana. When she first came to the United States, she had never seen a hot dog machine or hanging traffic lights; she had never experienced a laundromat or the American flag. She felt as though she would never completely fit in or understand American culture, and created the word "Anostalgia," or "sans nostalgia," to describe this feeling. To her surprise, Brito-Farre has grown to feel as though some of the objects she depicts in her "Anostalgia" series are now part of her, too.


The show will be on view until April 14, 2013
