Certains marchent sur la lune

Certains marchent sur la lune

sur la tête ou sur Mars …

D’autres balayent leur trottoir

et saluent leurs voisins …

Quel grand écart !

Certains labourent sans compter

pour encaisser toujours davantage …

D’autres plantent des graines une à une

et se contentent de leur humanité …

Quel grand écart !

A petit pas vers une nouvelle année

intimidés et inquiets nous sommes.

Décembre 2018 a été si particulier

il a sonné les cloches de la colère

de l’incompréhension, des abus,

des déséquilibres et des peurs.

Chaque année de nouvelles couleurs

de nouvelles odeurs

de nouveaux projets

de nouvelles inquiétudes

de nouvelles appréhensions.

Etudier Dame Lune

et vouloir marcher sur Mars

sans oublier de balayer son trottoir

et de saluer ses voisins avec le sourire.

Autant de souhaits, de vœux, de projets

pour ce début d’année si particulière.

Bénédicte Giniaux, Janvier 2019

Edito 2017

Ce matin, je suis partie marcher le long de la Dordogne

Edito 2014

Offrir à chacun une invitation au rêve et au voyage

Edito 2012

Transcender une émotion, rendre hommage, dénoncer une réalité, tendre vers un mouvement…

Edito 2011

Dans chaque atelier il y a quelque chose à découvrir, à comprendre et à partager

Edito 2010

Le fait d’être à l’écoute d’artistes, d’être dans l’échange et le partage d’émotions est une motivation quotidienne et un véritable bonheur.

Committed to living artists for more than 25 years, Bénédicte Giniaux started in the Oise and Paris regions before moving to Bergerac, Dordogne, where she opened her own art gallery in 2011.
In the heart of the historic centre of this charming city, the gallery presents the work of twenty permanent artists. The figurative art, which is here always customised and stylised, remains a priority, through various themes (the world of humans and animals, journeys, nudes, everyday life scenes and still-life paintings). Numerous abstract artworks are also on display.
In this art gallery, poetry, tenderness, humour and life stories are predominant. The artworks are signed by professional artists deeply committed to their work. Some of them even have a solid reputation abroad.
From small to large formats, the artworks are made of bronze, terra cotta, raku, iron, Corten steel, stainless steel, wood, glass fusion, etching, engraving, drawing, collage, watercolour, pastel, acrylic paint, oil paint, photography…

The gallery is run with passion by Bénédicte Giniaux. All her energy is dedicated to various artists, from France and abroad, with whom she chose to work and on long-term partnerships. They work hands-in-hands with a mutual confidence.
Throughout the year, various events give the gallery its tempo: solo or collective exhibitions, in situ with the permanent artists of the gallery, as well as outdoor exhibitions in partnership with important places, such as this summer exhibition at the Château des Vigiers.

“Over the past nine years, the Bénédicte Giniaux art gallery has been able to win over and retain an audience of amateurs and collectors from all over the region and passing through the Dordogne. The quality of the selected artworks, as well as the friendliness of the reception, undoubtedly make it one of the most important art galleries in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.” Florence Peyron

“I have always been working with artists from whom the sensibility and the creative techniques passionate me. I appreciate their investment, their commitment, their artistic search as well as the way they look at their own work. Some of them are present since the beginning of my activities, and when new artists fit in the gallery, my selection criterion are mainly linked with their professional background and I look for long-term partnerships.
All the sculptures and all the paintings are one-offs. Regarding the bronze sculptures, casted in limited edition and numbered, each one of them is called “Épreuve originale”. I never put on display artworks made from resin, neither for indoor nor outdoor.
All the artworks are technically mastered, and I always deliver a certificate of authenticity, alongside a text of introduction or a catalogue about the artist.”
