Lyon’s art galleries are both in tourist epicenters and hidden away, off the beaten path. Lyon can boast some of the best galleries not only in France, but in Europe too. Showcasing both antique and contemporary art in various mediums and techniques, art galleries in Lyon are a dazzling assortment of human expression.
Galerie Catherine Mainguy opened its doors in 2008. Catherine Mainguy used to work as a textile designer in Lyon before transitioning to paintings. Her large works deal with concepts of transition and passing, sitting somewhere on the edge of reality. Visitors can also find the works of other contemporary painters like Fred Calmets, Eric Lacombe, Florian Eymann, and Nicolas Favre.
