Many contemporary artists open their studios and welcome the public. A gleeful stroll throughout Avignon studded with visits to studios and discovery of the artists and their work.
The public is warmly welcomed to many different, individual and collectives work spaces, in and around Avignon. This Open House weekend seeks to create connections between the artists and viewers and enable the public to discover and explore the work created by the artists. A good way to get a sense of local artistic creation in Avignon.
This event was originally dreamed yp by Karine Debouzie and Françoise Dumon, part of the cultural association "Maison des Arts Contemporains d’Avignon" (MACA) and has since taken root and dynamically grown. Today the event us organised by the association "Peinture Fresh" which groups the atists and maintains close contact with the MAC’A and the Parcours de l’art.
For these two days of open studios, the public is invited into the artists' work space to discover their painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, calligraphy, graphism, illustration, design, street-art, video, digital art installations and other.
Some artists host you in their studios, others in their homes.
Some offer events such as readings, demonstrations, or hands-on workshops.
