Salon des métiers d'art


Over this past weekend, the town hall hosted the local art crafts show with book, porcelain, painting and furniture restorers, sculptors, stained glass... The Ecole Sablé trompe-l'oeil stall attracted a lot of attention, I just love that oval trompe-l'oeil!

Ce weekend se tenait le salon des métiers d'art à l'hôtel de ville avec des artistes versaillais, restaurateurs de porcelaine, de livres, de meubles, du vitrail... Ces trompe-l'oeil de l'Ecole Sablé ont attiré beaucoup de monde.

I cannot imagine how wonderful the crafts are in Versailles with centuries of history and tradition... would love to see it all!

Hay there, you with d'art in your eyes...

Sorry, just being silly. Glad you liked the hay truck, though.

I'll bet you thoroughly enjoyed this show, too. Even I enjoy going to arts and crafts shows...we have a big one here every October as you know...It sounds like yours and ours are very similar!

Sure, who wouldn't? Trick of the eye, hall of mirrors, made you look. A lesson about perception and physical reality.

Wow, the chandeliers are spectacular. What a beautiful setting!

What a lovely Town Hall! The trompe-l'oeil is certainly drawing the attention...I always thought that having a wall or room with a trompe-l'oeil painting would be magnificent. I once painted a "window" in my living room, it was simple however, it looked real. And certainly added interest to the wall!

ils ont de la chance de faire ce salon dans cet endroit magnifique, nous c'est dans un gymnase, beaucoup moins beau ;)

Mon ébéniste restaurateur des Vosges vient de partir à la retraite et que mon tapissier ne va pas tarder. Les tarifs y sont moindre qu'à Versailles ou Paris je n'en doute pas...

A very interesting show, I really love the trompe-l'oeil as a form of art!

Le "métier d'art" qui a créé les pots de fleurs ne s'est pas foulé.

Malyss said...

ça devait valoir le coup rien que pour visiter l'endroit; j'espère que les lustres n'ont pas éclipsé le travail des artisans!

I'd doubt you'd see anything that elegant at a craft fair around these parts, nor would it be held in such an exquisite location.

I enjoy this sort of event. I usually find several items that inspire me.

Magpie said...

I can see why that was such a popular booth also. Lovely location for the event too.

A beautiful locale to host such a show. I love trompe l'oeil too, especially on the sides of buildings.

I love local art shows.... love how the lights look like candles.

Loree said...

I just love those chandeliers. Maybe I can get a pair when I buy my own palace;)

J'ai vue sur TV5 monde que les métiers qui avais presque disparu revenais petit à petit; les métiers de l'art reste assez diversifié beaucoup cherche leurs voie, très bien cette espace mais pourquoi le weekend. vive les métier d'art , de mon coté j'ai du mal avec l'art dans mon corporation de souffrances.
