Vernissage: American Artist Ralph Brancaccio

One of the many great things about living in Paris is the multitude of vernissages (art openings) that seem to happen constantly in galleries and alternative spaces around the city. They’re generally free and open to the public, and they provide a great opportunity to check out both emerging and established artists. And of course, mixing it up with other art-interested people over wine and hors d’oeuvres is always a good time.

Tonight’s vernissage of note is that of American artist Ralph Brancaccio, whose mixed-media installations address current events in order to provoke positive social change. The vernissage is sponsored by Sarah McDonald’s Incubator 5066, an organization that helps to support and expose the work of emerging artists. The event will take place from 6-10pm at Patrick Ahmed’s Medley hair salon in the Marais.

Event details: 21, rue Vielle du Temple, 4eme. 6pm-10pm. Free and open to the public. For more information, call 06 20 59 84 46. Expo goes until May 1, 2010.
