The next monthly Franklin Art Association meeting will take place on February 3 at 6:30 pm, as usual, via Zoom. Following an informal virtual social gathering from 6:30-7:00, the formal program will be devoted to a viewing of a Franklin TV Cable retrospective on the work of painter Christine Toubeau. Toubeau, a member of the Franklin Art Association, is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2004. She has worked as a fashion illustrator, a free-lance graphic illustrator, an art teacher at Tri-County’s Graphic Arts Shop as well as at the Franklin County Technical School in Turners Falls, and for several years had her own wall mural painting business here in Franklin.
Toubeau’s original, acrylic, paintings deal with the theme of the interaction of humans with futuristic technology. She currently has an exhibit of her acrylic paintings on view at the First Universalist Society Church in Franklin. Franklin TV cameraman Chris Flynn, in collaboration with Toubeau, combined footage of that exhibit with additional images taken from her larger body of work, including paintings featured in a 2010 solo art show at UMass entitled “The Robot Next Door” to produce the film to be shown at the FAA meeting. During the show, she will also illustrate her approach to working with large, four foot canvases as well as a painting with acrylics demonstration from her home studio.
The meeting is free of charge and open to all. Anyone wishing to attend should email the FAA Corresponding secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask to be added to the contact list for the meeting. A link to the meeting will be sent out to all attendees several days before the meeting.
