The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce a new exhibition, featuring works by Christopher Thibault, in the Carnegie Gallery, at the Rochester Public Library.
Thibault is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Merrimack Valley. Starting out as a musician and lyricist in the early 2000s, he traveled across the country playing shows and writing songs that later influenced visual representation and colorful abstract landscapes from memory. Appropriating every form through his work, marrying text and image, abstraction and figuration, historical information, and contemporary critique, he explores the dichotomies of the 21st Century, creating personal mythology of nostalgic motifs.
The museum is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Waterstone Properties Group, Bernier Insurance, Merideth Village Savings Bank, MacEdge, Lenharth Systems, and Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
