Marc Chalmé is having a solo debut exhibition called Still Light at Axelle Fine Arts. His pieces include mysterious landscapes, still-lifes and figurative pieces. His distinguished and unique style has brought him a considerable following across Europe. The way he depicts the light in his paintings give his work an almost serene and eerie feel. His most recent exhibition in France was critically acclaimed at France’s largest auction house review, by Gazette Drouot. On September 28th from 6-8PM, Marc Chalmé will attend the opening reception for his exhibit and will be available to discuss his work.
