Be among the first to explore the Louisiana Art & Science Museum's newest exhibition, A Work in Process: Paintings by Gustave Blache III at this exhibition's opening reception. Meet the up-and-coming artist himself and mingle with friends while enjoying complimentary wine and appetizers. Ordinary people engaged in the process of their everyday work forms the primary subject matter of these intimate paintings. Blache's painted scenes are contemporary; yet, the size of Blache’s depictions, the ornate framing, and the subject matter recall the paintings of American and European masters in art history, from the laundresses of Impressionist Edgar Degas and the stonebreakers of Realist Gustave Courbet to the urban laborers found in the paintings of the American Ashcan School. The reception is March 11 from 6:30 pm–8:30 pm. The exhibition is on view until June 4. lasm.org.
