Art at the Manoir de Couesme
Every September the Manoir de Couesme here in Ancinnes hosts a month-long art and sculpture exhibition by a featured artist. 2012 is the turn of Bap, a sculptor and artist originally from Dijon.
Today Jude and I went to see the exhibition, which as usual is arranged around the grounds and the buildings of the Manoir de Couesme, just 5 minutes up the road from us on the way towards Bourg-le-Roi.
As expected, it was a super exhibition and we can highly recommend it for anyone visiting here between now and the end of September – it is a rare opportunity to admire this delightful manor house, which dates from the 15th century and has been beautifully restored by the current owners, as well as to view the interesting sculptures and art works of Bap who works in slate, wire and also some amazing blue sculptures in coloured plaster and polyester which are made by moulding the material over sleeping horses!
From today and every day until 30th September, at the Manoir de Couesme, 5 minutes from La Basse Cour between Ancinnes and Bourg-le-Roi. Take advantage also to admire the beautifully restored manor house and grounds. Entry free, open 10am to 6pm daily.
