OPENING RECEPTION: “Rendez-vous a Paris | Photographs by Isabelle Perreau” at Archway Gallery

March 2 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

ON VIEW THRU APRIL 4, 2024: Photographer Isabelle Perreau’s new exhibition is a lover’s hand extended to the viewer in an invitation to take a carefree, romantic stroll through the picturesque Paris of tourists, lovers, and revelers from all over the world.

“Let’s stroll along the bustling boulevards and climb up the steep narrow streets to Butte Montmartre,” she entreats. “Then we’ll get lost in the intimate maze of Le Marais. Let’s blend into the Parisian crowd, admire all the prestigious monuments, then go sip a glass of Chardonnay on the terrace of the Café de Flore.”

“Then let’s just walk around to find the well-hidden gems off the beaten track. And breathing in the exciting air of old Paname, we’ll remember Victor Hugo and Sarah Bernhardt and Jean-Paul Sartre, and the many other luminaries of the Ville Lumière. We’ll go sing on the Champs Elysées, and dance on the Left Bank! We’ll have so much fun and take many selfies together, and then stop for a delicious bite at sweet Angélina’s Salon de Thé. And of course, we’ll make love, and when we fall asleep, we’ll be exhausted, but there will be so many stars still in our eyes! And then, tomorrow we’ll start for even more adventures throughout the magic city….”

Isabelle Perreau was born in Angers, in the Loire Valley, France. She studied philosophy in Paris and earned a Master’s degree with honors. In Caracas, Venezuela, where she followed her diplomat husband, she began a new career as a psychoanalyst à l’Ecole du Champ Freudien de J. Lacan. She also worked at the Alliance Française. It is only since moving to Texas 20 years ago that photography became her chosen mode of expression. Her camera has become her companion on innumerable travels across the planet. She had a solo exhibition (2015) and a group exhibition (2017 ) at the Alliance Française. This is her fourth exhibition at Archway Gallery, where she has been a member since 2017. All exhibitions have been part of FotoFest.
