The Museum premiere of these new paintings by Paul Gervais features portraits with a tenderness that urges the viewer to lean in closely, to really study them.

All of the subjects in the portraits are personal, from the life he has shared for 46 years with his husband Gil, of whom there are several paintings.

The exhibition is curated by Kathleen Goncharov, the Senior Curator of the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

She chose to accompany the 14 portraits with a series of 13 paintings by Gervais of imagined objects.
