Workshops win the day

Over 50 Loir-et-Cher artistes exhibit their works over a weekend

A little background…

In 1999, then again in 2000, a few painters and plastic artists decided to exhibit their work in a Blois workshop over a weekend.

Soon voluntary artistes created the l'Odeur de la Couleur association. First try, first success, artistes turned up en masse, and a number of venues opened to welcome an enthusiastic public. Since then, the event has been repeated every year.

In 2009, to celebrate the association's 10th anniversary, the team, backed by the City of Blois, proposed to bring all the artistes together in the same place, which led to "Les ateliers s'emportent" in the bishop's palace gardens. The association was provided with major logistics resources and effective help from the municipal services to organise the event, which forms part of Unesco's World Heritage Rendez-Vous.
