Many people refer to Jacques Pepin as an artist in the kitchen but few know that the legendary French chef is an actual artist away from the kitchen.
Pepin likes to paint and many of the chef’s creations, which include a painting of a rooster and one of sone pigs, are going on display for the first time at the Guilford Art Center in Connecticut.
Apparently, Pepin started painting over 50 years ago, inspired after creating hand-drawn menus.
The collection opens at the gallery June 21st and after this the exhibition will be open to the public free of charge.
“I am pleased to be partnering with the Guilford Art Center for this exhibition in support of their stellar reputation in the arts community and access to all approach to sharing art education and experiences,” said the chef.
