Painters and artists in assembly

Their works are exhibited throughout the year on the first floor of the town hall and this space made available to them, free of charge, is as much appreciated by artists as by the many visitors who come to admire their creations. The mayor, Jérôme Crampe, present at the general assembly of the Apab, these last days, was also warmly thanked for having had the idea of ​​​​these exhibitions which, each month, honor an artist from the ‘association. The latter specified that a new and numerous public, in particular during weddings, lingers in front of the panels adjoining the wedding hall.

Because at the Association of Painters and Artists from Borders, there are 34 members (including 2 children); 15 members regularly attend the workshop, which is open mainly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

But our artists from Bordeaux also went out with their easels for “paintings on the motif”, in Bordères, Orleix, Tilhac, in the Gers, last year, without forgetting the visits to galleries in Marciac during the jazz festival!

In Bordères, we find them on the occasion of the Floralies borderaises in May, at the Forum des associations in September, for the Gift Fair at the beginning of December, where they also participate in the Telethon by selling creations for the benefit of the AFM.

In Gayan too, they return regularly for exhibitions at the town hall and during Cultural Week in October; in this pretty village, they appreciate the welcome reserved for them by Patrick Gaschet, the mayor, and his team and they hope to return there in 2023. There are many projects for the coming months with, in addition to the usual events in Bordeaux, the participation at Un air de Montmartre, Cours Reffye in Tarbes, in June; the return of the annual Salon to the town hall, in May, and, why not, a competition for children?

The office, unchanged, is composed of: Patrick Trapani, president; Bernard Brunet, treasurer; Lyne Vautrin, secretary; Jade and Michel Monaco, members.
