Parcours dans l'art actuel 2012

Every autumn, the town hall hosts an exhibition of Versailles based artists. Since it was raining pots and buckets AGAIN, that's where I went on Saturday. It is the 10th anniversary of this event hence an 'art post' to greet visitors! I'll be showing you a few of my favourite works this coming week.

Chaque automne, l'hôtel de ville expose des artistes versaillais. Comme il flottait encore samedi, c'est là que je me suis rendue. C'est le 10è anniversaire de "Parcours dans l'art actuel" et les visiteurs sont accueillis par ce poteau de tableaux ! Je vous montrerai dans la semaine à venir quelques œuvres que j'ai aimées.

I'm glad you had a great place to go and get out of the rain and enjoy at the same time!! Our weather is rain, rain, rain so much of the time here in Seattle and I can identify with you! Looks like a terrific exhibit! Look forward to seeing more, Ciel!! Hope you have a drier week!!

It is a shame about all of that rain. I like your shot into the light.

Sign, rain again??!! Have you started building your ark?

At least you had a great place to visit.

I thought of you while watching a show on the Nemours Mansion in Delaware. Evidently, Alfred DuPont had the gardens fashioned after the gardens of Versailles. I need to plan a visit, it's an amazing place. http://www.nemoursmansion.org/

This looks like an elegant setting for the art exhibition.

I thought it was raining "cats and dogs." "Pots and buckets"? Hmmm...well, at least you got to this fine exhibition. Seems to me I remember a similar post from this place last year? Oui? I shall look forward to your other photos in the near future! BTW, why if we say "photos" instead of "fotos," do we say "future," instead of "phuture"? English is a very weird language!

Lowell said...

Hi Ciel: Thanks for your comments today. Re your question on Cedar Key: the "other bird" is a wooden eagle which is supposed to scare away the crows. :-))
