L’ Art Caché

L’ Art Caché or Hide Art. Once a year, artists in the area come together in the small village of Albas (Pop: 74) and show their work. While there are art shows all over France all year round, this one is close to home and lots of fun. A chance to meet artists you haven’t met before and see what the ones you know have been up to.

Of course there is always food on offer from a free apéritif to a sit-down meal with art lovers and the artists themselves. Patric who appeared at the recent Bio Marché was there with his fiddle, a choir, animations for the children all topped off with a large dinner in the evening.

This is the third year that I have attended (and posted) this event and each year and delighted to see what is available. With the exception of the performance artists/ installation arts, the artists are available and happy to discuss their work.

I do hope that you enjoy the work presented here and that you find some inspiration for your own creative endeavors. Personally, I can barely wait to get back to my brushes and oils.

Perhaps a follow-up post is needed to include more of the photos from yesterday’s event.

    1. Sorry Christine! That is just a loose translation. If you walked around Albas, you would find the art tucked into all sorts of spaces (ergo, hidden). It implores us to look all about us. 🙂 xx

      1. My feet can only take part of the blame. Often it is the camera that leads me around or perhaps just being here in La belle France… 🙂

  1. Love the idea of hidden art – it’s so good to look for the things that aren’t obvious! Thank you for sharing all the wonderful photographs as well as your reflections.

    1. It is fun to walk about and never know what is around the next corner or in the barn… Look for the unexpected and you are rewarded. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Salut chère Léa,

    L’ Art Caché est tout simplement génial…

    Mon œuvre d’art préférée ici est “L’ allégorie du souffle”… Vraiment captivante et sublime 🙂

    Merci beaucoup.

    Mes meilleurs vœux pour toi,
    Aquileana 😀
