Art + Sculpture Show Opens Tonight

Sorry for the short notice on this one, folks. But there's a lovely art show and sale opening tonight so I thought I'd slip it in here quickly. The annual show is called ABBYAC and it's on view through September 7 in the gorgeous gardens of the Abbaye Saint-André (at the hilltop Fort Saint-André) in Villeneuve les Avignon, just across the Rhone from Avignon. Twenty-three artists will be showing sculpture,  engravings,  ceramics and installations. The vernissage (opening party) is tonight, from 6 pm to 9 pm, and everyone is welcome; most artists will be present. Entry tonight and for the duration of the show is 6€ for adults and free for kids under 8; reduced and family prices are available. The show remains on view every day from 10 am to 6 pm. There's parking on the hill so just drive on up...and don't miss the great views of Avignon. The site for the Abbaye (with directions) is here...and there's info in English here...and a bit more info on the show is here. This year's show is in partnership with Galerie 22 in Coustellet.  Bon Weekend!


  1. I am so glad to know about these gardens! My husband and I will be in Provence soon. I have read about Villeneuve-les-Avignon, but have never checked it out. We always spend a day in Avignon. Now, we know that there are other treasures nearby! Merci, Julie.

  2. Julie are you going? take pix? I would LOVE to see this and to visit VlesA..
