Set your sights on the French Cultural Center’s latest exhibit, Marguerite Wibaux’s French Eyes on Boston, a collection of oil paintings capturing the city and its youth. The assortment of colorful portraits and architectural landscapes encapsulates Wibaux’s vision of Boston, which she developed after moving to the city from France in 2017. Utilizing traditional French techniques established in the 20th century, Wibaux held live sessions to translate each portrait subject’s personality onto the canvas. She shines a light on the city’s generation of youth, as shown in Medina’s Vibes (seen above), depicting a young man gazing out calmly in front of a fabric-inspired background. Lay your eyes on the works at the French Cultural Center through Feb. 28. / Celia Carbone
