CMA is the only U.S. venue for this extraordinary exhibition. Featuring approximately 100 paintings, drawings, prints, and works on paper, the exhibition explores the Parisian art scene, focusing on the most important French avant-garde artists of the late 19th century, including Paul Signac, Maximilien Luce, Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Vallotton, Odilon Redon, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The Parisian Fin de Siècle was a time of political upheaval and intense cultural transformation. Mirroring the many facets of an anxious, unsettled era, this period saw the emergence of a broad spectrum of new artistic movements. Despite the diversity of styles, their subject matter remained largely that of their still-active Impressionist predecessors: landscapes, the modern city, and leisure-time activities, though the avant gardes added introspective scenes and fantastical visions to the repertoire."

Artists Paula Nees and Eileen Woods share an interest in the dichotomy of sumptuous beauty and the decay that time and neglect inflict upon it. From the remnants of exquisite textiles and papers, to letters that spell out someone's last words on earth, the exhibition looks at the ephemeral nature of animals habitat and human works. Both artists work with fabric and use unusual media in the translation of their ideas. Opening Reception: Friday, November 17th from 6-8 pm!
