A Springtime Gathering of Artists

What
A mid-spring, nocturnal gathering of neighborhood artists. An opportunity to meet - and support - some local, creative talent. An informal exhibit and showcase of:
-Fashion
-Ceramics
-Artistic lighting
-Headware
-Jewelry

You might even get a cup of tea...or three.

Who
This causal community get-together will feature a different guest or two in each of the nine boutiques.

There will be painters and fashion designers and jewelry creators: Sophie Guyot, Pauline Pluquet, Gaëlle Richard, Cécile Raquin, and Emie Latestaire, to name just a few.


Where
In the Croix-Rousse, Lyon. All participating shops are literally a five-minute walk (or less) from each other. It's simple to get there: just take the metro to Place de la Croix-Rousse and walk up the Grande rue and turn right. See the map below.

When
Thursday, April 21st, from 5 to 10pm. That's tomorrow!

Why
For the chance to chat, mingle, rub shoulders, go elbow-to-elbow with the makers of some unique artistic creations.

To stretch your legs after a long day at work.

Because it's Thursday, and Thursday is such an I-want-to-go-out-and-pre-celebrate-the-weekend kind of day.

And finally: why not?

I know it's too early to talk about Christmas, but wedding season is upon us, and we're inching closer to school graduations, family reunions and summer birthday barbecues. You just might get thee gift idea that friends and family will be talking about for the next five years.

You just might bump into that friend or neighbor you've been meaning to call.

You just might come away from it all feeling inspired to fashion a little bit of artwork from your own burgeoning inspiration.
