Lez’ Arts Chez Nous

Bienvenue!
Bienvenue!
So delicate!

A blue sky was over Chateau Bonnafous welcoming the local artists, artisans and all who joined in. The grounds, facilities and location are perfect for the many events held here. This is an annual event and there are always a few artists/artisans that we have seen previously.

We had a beautiful day for admiring the talents and skills of so many local residents. There is also the opportunity to purchase some of the items and to talk with the vendors. Naturally, you will be surrounded by friends, family, neighbours but perhaps make a few connections. Most of the tourists have moved on as the season’s change.

In addition to the singing group there was a concert held later in the evening. An actor read some poetry. Being a poet myself, I was disappointed that it was not his own work but he read so well with a voice that really held you. One woman brought her loom and gave demonstrations of weaving and had numerous examples of her work.

The majority of work is visual so I shall let the pictures do the talking!

Bisous,

Léa

  1. I love the paintings – especially that first one. It looks like the blue sky was the perfect accompaniment. It is nice when those tourists move on too – a little like breathing a sigh of relief.

    1. I just love all these opportunities to see art and socialise. There are a few tourists but few of them stop into such events. We get tourists nearly year round as we are on the route de Cathar in the heart of the Cathar region. There are many hikers, cyclists and others. Also, the vendange is about to start and young people come from all over Europe for the weeks required to get the grapes picked. Then there is a lot of celebrating the harvest and the new wine. It is rough but someone has to do it! 🙂

      1. I’ll have to get out there for the vendange sometime – even if that would make me a tourist. I’ll celebrate wine anytime!

      2. Oh absolutely! It is a wonderful time to be here. Yet after nearly six years, I cannot think of a time that is not. The wine here is spectacular and I take my empties up to a friends cave and get them refilled. Two litres for five euros. That my friend, is organic and delicious.
        If you are serious, let me know and I will tell you of another adventure at the same time which you must reserve your space about a year in advance it is so popular! 🙂
