“A table!”: joint exhibition in Viroflay

A table!
from 10 December 2022 to 22 January 2023
at the Galerie L’Ecu de France
1, rue Robert Cahen, 78220 Viroflay

  • Open every day from 2pm to 7pm (except on December 25th and January 1st)
  • Opening on Saturday 10 December at 11am
  • Guided tour of the exhibition on Wednesdays and Sundays at 4.30 pm

From the garden to the table, fruit and vegetables invite us to a feast for all the senses. Just over 10 years after the French gastronomic dinner was listed as a World Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Arts of the Table continue to inspire us to share moments. All these simple things that are anchored in our daily lives are sublimated by the gaze of the artists with whom I share this exhibition: designers, visual artists, ceramists, sculptors, textile artists.

Opening on Saturday, April 16 from 6 pm.

Gallery La Boucherie, 7 rue des Préaux, 35800 Saint-Briac
The gallery is open every day from 10:30 am to 1 pm and from 4:30 pm to 7 pm except on Monday afternoon.

“Raphaèle BERNARD-BACOT returns to the gallery La Boucherie for a solo exhibition with about thirty pastels. Passionate about vegetable gardens, small plots of land patiently cultivated, she picks, with the tip of her pastels, the fruits and vegetables she finds there and makes them dance on the paper.
She works on the ground, meets the gardeners and keeps track of her encounters in numerous sketchbooks.
One of them is the subject of a book published by Rue de l’Echiquier “City Gardeners, Portraits Sketched On The Spot” (Jardiniers des villes, portraits croqués sur le vif) which she will sign on the evening of the opening.

Saint-Cloud Authors’ Salon

The 2nd Salon des auteurs clodoaldiens will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2022 from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm at Le Carré, 3 bis, rue d’Orléans in Saint-Cloud.

The originality of this salon is it was created by an author and his collective, who then contacted the town of Saint-Cloud and not the other way round!
It is an opportunity to sign my book on city gardeners.
And also a lot of meetings, workshops and competitions in perspective with the public and the 39 other authors.
