A vernissage is a term used for a preview of an art exhibition. If the vernissage is not open to the public, but only for invited guests, it is often called a private view. There is a comparable ceremonial ending of art exhibitions, called a finissage. Larger art exhibitions also may have an event at half time of the exhibition called a midissage. These latter terms are rare in English; they are more commonly used in German but not in French.
