The partnership between the Château des Vigiers and the Galerie Bénédicte Giniaux continues with passion and elegance, as Art is integrated in this prestigious domain : from the beginning of May, 16 Chateau rooms have been chosen to welcome one or two works of art each, all signed by some of the artists of the gallery.
The gallery displays the figurative art as a priority, which is mainly customised and stylized about the Animal world and Travels themes; without neglecting nudes and still lifes. It is an art gallery, where dream, poetry, tenderness, humour and witness of life dominate; and where the works of art are signed by renowned artists, deeply committed to their creation.
This year, for this second edition of “An artist in your room”, 8 of the 18 artists of the gallery have the place of honour in some of the rooms of Chateau des Vigiers:
Alfons Alt (Photographer ‘altotypiste’ – German) ; Christine Bourcey (Painter and sculptor – French) ; Philippe Bouvet (Painter – French) ; Jean-Pierre Dall’Anese (Sculptor – French) ; Christophe Loyer (Sculptor – French) ; Sylvie Mazereau (Painter – French) ; Patrice Mesnier (Sculptor – French) ; Emmanuel Michel (Painter and sculptor – French).
This quite confidential event is well matched with the exhibition of 4 big-sized paintings in the old wine making building “Brasserie le Chai”. And it is also an introduction for this summer exhibition: “Wolhfahrt – Sculptor” which will be presented outdoor, on the grassland in front of the Dépendances Suites of Chateau des Vigiers.
