Melancholic reflections on the rainy day of June 13 were brightened by CFA Association Russia’s social event in Totibadze Gallery at the Moscow Contemporary Art Center Winzavod. CFA Russia invited Muriel Rousseau-Ovtchinnikov, a renowned French artist whose paintings are currently displayed at the gallery, to talk about her work, modern art, and fascinating stories of her life.

For about 30 CFA Russia guests it was a great opportunity to put aside the monotony of work and see Muriel’s exhibition named The Weather Changes The Happiness Stays, catch up with each other, and do some business networking in a friendly environment over a glass of fine wine and French cheese.

Muriel moved to Russia in 1993 after marrying a Russian painter, Nikolai Ovtchinnikov. Since then she has worked as a painter, designer, as well as founded the famous chain of cafes, Jean-Jacques (named after Jean-Jacques Rousseau to whom Muriel can trace back her lineage).

It is through painting Muriel tells the story of her life – childhood spent in France, adult years filled with happiness, her arrival to Moscow and falling in love with Russia. Guests were pleased to learn about Muriel’s stories through the exhibition that was a look into her soul and an attempt to capture memories filled with happiness.

After Muriel’s presentation and a few follow-up questions, the event smoothly turned into a friendly networking session during which the guests had an opportunity to meet each other over a glass of red Chilean wine and the servings of Brie cheese.

CFA Russia would like to thank Marina Tsurtsumia, the director of Totibadze Gallery, for helping us with the organization of the event.
