Throughout the year we happily organize collective and / or monographic exhibitions in the Art Room and outside the walls in exceptional places. On these occasions, we bring artists together around a theme which is important to us and we are showing their recent works. These exhibitions can be seen for several weeks by appointment in the Art Room or open to the public during openings.

Cheminements, a solo show by Claire de Chavagnac Brugnon
November 12 to November 30, 2018
The works by Claire de Chavagnac Brugnon are the marks of the memories, the result of numerous travels around the world, in China, India, Stockholm, Spain, Australia... and "always elsewhere, to trace each time differently, at another temperature, with the tones of a new atmosphere, the resonance of the places she has crossed ".
Claire travels around the planet, armed with a travel diary and poses there as random preparatory works, paths without result following a linear mesh.
The juxtaposition of simple, repetitive signs, like the rhythm of passing time.
The colors, the materials and the gestures like the remains of the atmosphere of the destination.
Claire does not know in advance what it will do for her, much like a writer would take notes for a future manuscript, or a musician who would annotate his score.
Then she organizes later, on her return, the work on canvas. It is a mental wandering and the work weaves slowly but calmly and silently; from the sketchbook to the final performance. Each travel diary is the memory support of the artist for the realization of a canvas.
Always composed with a cyclic rhythm resulting from this repetition and distribution of traits, more or less mastered, more or less fine, more or less intertwined, with pigments, binders, acrylics and skin glues to give life to what the artist calls the "texture of time".
