While we were in Provence, France, in August, we were lucky enough to have the right date timing for a local art exhibition that was held in the town, which Claudie and her sister were kind enough to invite us to come along to.
Ollioules Mayor, Robert Beneventi – which we had the pleasure of meeting afterward – opened the Exhibition with a well appreciated speech.
One of the many artists that had their work hanging in the gallery, was in fact Claudie’s sister – an excellent aquarelle painter.
The three paintings below are painted by Claudie’s sister, wonderful motifs of three women. Look at the different details in their outfits and the movement in them!
There were so many paintings there – and people – so I couldn’t really take photos as I wanted, but I managed to take one of this fun and creative sculpture.
I had one or two other favorites besides from Claudie’s sisters paintings, which I totally forgot to take a picture of!
…and then we saw a fantastique stilleben (still life)…. or…..?
No, it was Tor taking a pause in the walking around in the gallery, obviously totally taken by the art…. *giggles*
So many artists participated with their work in this exhibition, that I couldn’t mention them all, I’ll just have to say that I loved that there is so much creativity going on in this little town!
Food and drinks was served outside in the gorgeous weather. It was such a pleasure to have some French snacks and some drinks. We were very honored to mingle with the people there, even though we only could speak English with a few of them.
Yes, it was definitely one of many highlights during this trip.
Another painting in a total different place catching our eyes while we were in France, were one of Pierre’s paintings: a very beautiful woman…
We definitely could notice that France really are the country of artistic heritage, everywhere there were so interesting and creative people!
