It’s all in the family in this series of events marking the opening of a show of photographs by Marie-Christine Poulenc, “Par les Champs et par les Grèves.” The opening of the photographer’s exhibit of nature images inspired by the stories of Gustave Flaubert (tonight at 6:30 p.m.) is followed by a one-hour documentary by Marie-Christine’s son Christophe about the life of the family’s most famous member, her uncle, the composer Francis Poulenc (8:30 p.m.). The opening will also feature music by the latter Poulenc, performed by pianist Shimon Aranovich. Tomorrow evening at 8 p.m., there’s a reception and a pricier ($75) performance of Poulenc’s music by the Zépyhros Quartet. The exhibit is on view by appointment,
