Véronique Faravel, Orange
Marie-Pierre Hogret, Ensuès-la-Redonne
Régine Pivier-Attolini, Martigues
Eleni Pappa Tsantilis, Brignoles
Elsa-Claire Warot, Lambesc
From the terracotta rooftops, to the mountains and cliffs, to lavender and sunflower fields, to the sparkling blue of the sea…Provence is a beloved place where painters have for years come to be inspired by the sheer energy of the region. This inspiration is revealed in the work of Véronique Faravel, whose abstract works colorfully represent the vibrations of words, and the paintings of Eleni Pappa Tsantilis, which represent the gentle, slow, and simple way of life in Provence. The exhibit was designed to bring into the living rooms of art lovers the inspiration found by modern artists in the Provence region.
Each of the artists in this exhibit brings a unique interpretation of the beauty found in the south of France through the use of a variety of mediums and techniques. The work of Marie-Pierre Hogret is purely abstract, representing the vibrancy found both in Provence and the place of her childhood, Madagascar. The works of Régine Pivier-Attolini play with the colors of Provence and their infinite variations to free herself from realistic representations to reveal the soul of Provence. Finally, our mixed media artist Elsa-Claire Warot creatively depicts the four seasons in Provence through four panels that she has specifically dedicated to her land..
The exhibit will be featured through October. To view, visit: galeriejumelles.com/exhibitions, or click on the button below. Enjoy!

When we began to pull this exhibit together, the driving force was “beauty”…in all its forms. In a world that can be so busy, we hope that this exhibit will encourage all who view it to slow down, and learn a little about art and our extraordinary artists. Most importantly, we hope that the exhibit will bring a little bit of beauty into all our lives.
