Visit the Atelier de La Conche

Atelier and Gallery de La Conche

 

Website/Site Internet:www.bowater.fr



This year, for the first time, we opened our Gallery as part of the
Festival Arts & Vigne in Chatillon-en-Diois.

The Festival ran from 7th to 14 August.  Opening in our own Gallery,
which is about 5 minutes' walk from the village, as we expected reduced
the number of visitors substantially, especially given the very hot, sunny
weather throughout the Festival.  But, as we had hoped, we had enough
serious visitors to declare the experiment a success.

The Gallery will now remain open in the long-term.  Since the end of the
Festival visitors have continued to come and we have had a reassuring number of sales and orders.  

We are usually here, at home, but of course not always.  It's wise to phone
us in advance so that we can be sure to be available if you wish to visit
the Gallery.  We have plenty of parking space and are in easy walking
distance of the village.  You will find a location map on our website:


Apart from Georgina's graphic images created for interior display, which we
present more in the manner of classical art than in the standard, conservative
photographic form, we also have a wide range of more conventional
photography and a valuable collection of images that we took in
Papua New Guinea between 1970 and 1973 and which were the subject of a
substantial exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.





We print in our workshop on-site and, if required, to order onto Fineart
Watercolour Paper or 'Lyve' canvas.  The canvas prints are treated
with a matte, protective, invisible coating which dispenses with the
need for glass.
