Nous allons fêter le neuvième printemps de la galerie à Bergerac !

Décidément les rives de la Dordogne restent un endroit propice pour préparer un édito en marchant !

Depuis de nombreux mois, voire quelques années, nous devons tous nous adapter aux changements de la société dans laquelle nous vivons. Parfois, ce que nous avions compris ne fonctionne plus tout à fait de la même manière, ce qui nous paraissait facile ou simple s’est souvent compliqué. De nombreux codes ont changé. Tout a évolué avec une immense rapidité.

Cependant il y a toujours de très bons moments à inventer, à créer, à partager et à vivre !

En 2020, nous allons fêter le neuvième printemps de la galerie à Bergerac et la vingt-sixième année de mon activité toujours aussi passionnante. Certains artistes sont présents depuis le début. Nous avons fait un bon bout de chemin ensemble !

En mars, nous participons à ARTUP Lille avec Valem, Joanna Hair et Didier Caudron.

En avril, nous organisons une exposition collective « Terres d’Afrique » où certains artistes de la galerie présenteront tableaux, sculptures ou photographies. C’est avec une très belle émotion que je vous annonce que Ernest Pignon-Ernest présentera exceptionnellement quelques œuvres. J’admire vraiment l’ensemble de son travail. Autre invitée de marque, Elsa Lunghini, chanteuse, comédienne et photographe, présentera quelques tirages bien choisis.

L’été sera très poétique avec une grande exposition des sculptures de Christophe Loyer au Château des Vigiers.

La nouvelle galerie en Lot-et-Garonne à Villeréal donne une véritable ouverture sur un autre département et amplifie la communication ainsi que la réputation de la galerie.

Que 2020 permette de trouver les bonnes clefs pour être une année constructive afin de vivre cette nouvelle décennie avec espoir et confiance.

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

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.”
