The Gibbes Museum of Art, one of the oldest arts organizations in the country, will exhibit a collection of artwork by French masters of the Impressionism movement. Light Effects: The French Impressionists will be on display at the Gibbes from September 3, 2021 – February 20, 2022, showcasing principal artists of the movement such as Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, Auguste Renoir, Paul Gaugin, Mary Cassatt and others.
Light Effects: The French Impressionists will feature works by French masters that showcase short, loose brushstrokes, bright colors and a focus on modern life that became the language of Impressionism. Selected from private collections located across the country, including Charleston, this show is organized as part of the museum’s collectors’ series with the assistance of The Fine Art Group. The exhibition will be on display in galleries two and three on the museum’s second floor.
