Following its huge success last year, Découv’Art will return to the Terre Sainte region for a weekend of open door events and artistic demonstrations.

Taking place over the weekend of 29 to 30 September, Découv’Art will provide the general public with the opportunity to meet local artists at work in their own workshops.  In total, 13 artists and 1 art gallery located across 6 villages will open their doors throughout the weekend. Click here to find out more about each of the participating artists.

Many of the artists will also provide demonstrations of the techniques that they use in their projects. Sculpting, painting, ceramics, glass-making, photography, illustrating, pottery, woodworking, and sewing are just a few of the trades that you can expect to see on your tour of the workshops.

This is a rare opportunity to see for yourself the level of creative dynamism which prevails in this region, and to chat with the artists about their work, their sources of inspiration, and the techniques and materials that they use.

Click here to view the event flyer and make a note of the artists you wish to see. Don’t forget to ask them when they will next be displaying their work locally. Many of the artists participating in Découv’Art exhibit regularly in local, Swiss and international exhibitions so this is a unique occasion to see them at work in their “own space” when they are at their most creative!

There will be a special opening on Friday 28 September for a number of local schools so if you live in the area and your child is interested in art, then he/she may be fortunate to get a sneak preview of the artists at work before the weekend.
