"ARTMONIE OF WINTER" in February 18th and 19th 2017
The cultural season of "Artistement votre en Sologne" opened with an exhibition of paintings and sculptures. Two talented artists presented their works in perfect harmony.
We have seen in the paintings of Patrice BOURDIN, a painter who is passionate about pastels, the sincerity of the emotion that he feels for the nature that surrounds him.
The presentation of the technique of the pastels that he made for the public, interested a lot of the many people who came to listen to him and watch him work.
As for the sculptures of Marc HABARNAU, delicate and powerful works, they enchanted the public. Works to watch and even listen ...
The themes came together in a complement of colours. The harmony thus provoked, was a real pleasure for the visitors !!
