Every summer, the multi-artist show ABBYAC takes over the beautiful gardens and interior of the Abbaye Saint-André, at the hilltop Fort Saint-André in Villeneuve Lez Avignon (yes, they spell it Lez not Les). This year, 22 artists are participating, showing sculptures, paintings, engravings, ceramics and installations...with Galerie 22 in Coustellet as the co-curator. The vernissage (opening) will be Wednesday Aug 26 from 6 pm to 9:30 pm and all are welcome; admission that evening is free. The show runs until Sunday Sept 6 and is open from 10 am to 6 pm, every day except Monday. Admission is 6€ for adults, free for kids under 8 and discounted for groups and families. In conjunction with ABBYAC, a nine-artist show called "Grandeur Nature" is ongoing at the Domaine Dalmeran in St. Etienne du Grès until August 29. For general info, go to the websites linked above.
