Les Impromptus 23 July – 8 August 2011

La Moutardiere is an old farm complex. Art works by local, national and international painters and sculptors were displayed in the gardens and in the restored barn, stables and pigeon tower. A selection of my French Field paintings were exhibited in part of the beautiful stables (a fitting location). The ‘Red Tree’ painting was a favourite of many visitors.

I am delighted to participate in Les Impromptus at La Moutardière on Saturday 23 July from 18.00 hours onwards, where I shall exhibit paintings inspired by my frequent stays in SW France. La Moutardière is a restored farm in the countryside on the edge of Caussade (82), dating back to the18th Century.

Maryvonne Constant is the enthousiastic driving force behind the cultural activities taking place there throughout the year. These include art classes, ateliers for artists, art residencies, and exhibitions and once a year Les Impromptus, a showcase of local, national and international artists. Participation in Les Impromptus is by invitation and I was so pleased to be included in this year’s event. This year’s artists, will exhibit their paintings, sculptures and installations in the restored barn, the old stables, a tower and of course, the extensive garden. The exhibition runs from  23 July till 8 August. I shall be posting photos as and when they are available. Watch this space.
