Je t’aime PARISh PARISh PARISh Exhibit

Erin Parish, Tom Parish and Shirley Parish fulfill their dreams to show their work together in one place with the opening reception of the Je t’aime PARISh PARISh PARISh exhibit on Nov. 30 at the Midpoint Gallery. At the reception, British Singer Haywoode, known for her song Roses and Italian DJ SoundsInsane will perform and provide music.

The name for the exhibit comes from an important trip they took in the 1970s to Paris. It is also derived from the inventive play, in which artists insert themselves and transform the mundane, in the spirit of the “Ready-made.” It is a nod to Dadaism and Surrealism.

Their art stays away from trends as they prefer the more traditional style of artists like Van Gogh and Vermeer considering their works high points in the history of mankind. They choose to remain with the centuries-old technique of painting, one stroke at a time.
