Anne-Cecile Pflieger offers The French Eye

Parksville's Blys Yoga Studio the venue for Pflieger art show

Artist Anne-Cecile will be showing her first photo exhibition

This weekend enjoy some art, design, cheese, wine and live music at BLYS Yoga Studio in Parksville, as artist Anne-Cecile Pflieger puts on her first photo exhibition called The French Eye.

Anne-Cecile grew up in France and has been drawing and taking photos since she was young. 

She studied graphic and visual arts in Geneva, Switzerland and has 10 years experience working as a graphic designer. 

She has been living in Parksville for the past two years where she continues to do graphic design work, photography, drawing and painting.

Photography stimulates Anne-Cecile and allows her to reveal the beauty in the world to those around her, she said.

“It’s like seeing beauty when sometimes people don’t see anything,” she said, “and suddenly you show them all this beauty.” 

The photography in this exhibition has been compiled over about four years and will include images of nature, people and city architecture. 

Anne-Cecile said the photos are from all over the place, from her garden in Parksville to a woman in Mexico and a cityscape in Geneva.

She never plans any of her work, just carries her camera around and keeps an open mind, she said.

“It’s playing with colours, nature and people and catching moments of truth.”

Peter-Jack Rainbird will be playing live music at the event and there will be cheese from Little Qualicum Cheeseworks and wine from Mooberry Winery.

The exhibition happens this Saturday August 13 from 5 to 8 p.m. at BLYS Yoga located at 265 Butler Ave in Parksville.
