The Gallery is honored and delighted to host an artist’s reception for the renowned San Miguel artist Marion Perlet.

“The Cat’s Meow”
Paintings by Marion Perlet
Fri, Apr 5, 6-8pm
“Marion Perlet: Inspired by Mexico,” the popular March exhibition at The Gallery, showcased the artist’s commanding sense of her chosen country. These paintings celebrated the everyday beauty of Mexican architecture, daily life, and traditions, as well as the hauntingly engaging mythology and deeply felt religious beliefs.
In February, The Gallery presented “Marion Perlet: Speaking of the Heart.” These sensual paintings, created from the heart, reflect love, commitment, and passion. The power of these magnificent paintings comes from the artist and are magnified, embraced, molded by the hearts and experiences of the patrons who view them
To celebrate the new year, in January The Gallery featured Perlet’s collection, “After Paris,” which represented a dedication from the artist to share the passion and imagination that her visit to France ignited in her. Visions of unicorns, Renaissance ladies and a ship of fools came alive in the artist’s iconic style. Of course, Marie Antoinette was invited, and she remains the queen of The Gallery.
Born in Munich, Germany, and trained at Montreal’s L’Ecole des Beaux Arts during the early 1960s, Perlet has lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, for over 20 years. Since her first exhibition at age 22 in Montreal in 1962, she has had over 40 solo shows, including in Mexico City at the Canadian Embassy, the Bellas Artes and El Instituto Allende in San Miguel, and the Museo Icongrafico del Quixote, Guanajuato.
Please join us to meet the artist and see her much-loved, esteemed paintings.
