L’Art Caché

This is the third year in a row that I have attended the Albas “hidden art” festival and each time there are new and exciting works to view.  The village is small and surrounded by vineyards. There are numerous sheep in the area as well. The village itself is filled with charming old stone houses, gardens, stone walls and barns. Within this maze are the treasures we come to see. Upon arrival you are given a map to guide yourself from one exhibit to the next. Along the paths you will find brightly coloured markings to help you along the way.

The artist designs very detailed scenes within the cabinets of old television sets! That is what I call creative recycling! To see more of the artists work or contact directly:  you can look at http://www.facebook.com/zarno.patamodeleur or email at – zarno@orange.fr

Where possible, I have included the name of the artist and contact information. Unfortunately, there were a number of exhibits without the artist nearby and no sign, cards, handouts or other means to identify. I do apologise for this lapse in available  information.

 

Bisous,

Léa

    The photos are great and I particularly liked the poppies and that graffiti which says: “Avec qui?” (En fait, J’ ai trouvé que c’est une très bonne question).
