Events and activities in Grimaud in November 2023

Friday, November 3: Opening of the Joël Cunin exhibition

Copyright Joël Cunin

Painting is an act of love, and for the painter that I am, no subject is more beautiful than the human being, and particularly the female body. These women, as muses and models, through numerous exchanges and sharing, have taught me, among other things, that femininity is not solely about the appearance of the body.

Come and discover the works of this artist during the opening of the exhibition at Maison des Arcades at 6:30 PM.

Exhibition from Nov 7 to Dec 29. Tuesday to Sunday: 10 AM – 1 PM / 4 PM – 7 PM.
