Au saxophone, Jean-Michel Proust : Histoires de Jazz
Saxophoniste, chef d’orchestre, compositeur, Jean-Michel Proust ne cesse d’exprimer sa passion pour la musique et pour le jazz en particulier. Il anime des émissions sur les ondes de radio et à la télévision. Il écrit de nombreux articles dans la presse. Durant plusieurs années, il est directeur artistique du célèbre Duc des Lombards, à Paris. Il intègre différents orchestres dont Big Band Ornicar.

BELINGARD :
Il semble bien que le nom de “Bélingard” vienne de la langue celte et de la tradition orale : “beleen garten” dont la traduction serait “le jardin du dieu Beleen ou Belin”, dieu du soleil et de la guerre. Cette idée s’accorde aux légendes parlant de gui, de chênes, de lambrusques et de tonneaux, de vins et de plaisirs partagés, encore racontées aujourd’hui par le propriétaire des lieux, Laurent de Bosredon, qui a pris la succession de son père en 1980. Il parle aussi avec plus de lyrisme et d’enthousiasme de son terroir, des cépages, des vendanges et des vinifications. Ce grand terroir bordant le sud de la Dordogne et ce Domaine devenu emblématique dans la région de Bergerac, permet au fil des millésimes, d’exprimer la personnalité de grands vins. Reconnue et distribuée dans de nombreux pays du monde, répartie entre vins rouges et blancs secs de Bergerac, la production du Château Bélingard se décline également en vins liquoreux de Monbazillac.

SOIREE DE CLOTURE : Jeudi 20 septembre

Avec la présence de Francis Varis, à l’accordéon :
En 2012, il enregistre seul à l’accordéon, l’adaptation des six « suites pour violoncelle » de Bach. Depuis quinze années, il parcourt le monde aux côtés de Titi Robin et accompagne de nombreux chanteurs en France et à l’étranger depuis 1985. Il crée avec Dominique Cravic en 1982 le quartet de Jazz « Cordes et lames ».  Aujourd’hui, près d’une quarantaine de titres pour sa discographie.
Un jeu d’une immense délicatesse au service d’un accordéon au souffle rare, surprenant et généreux.

Alors que dansent des personnages bercés par le vent,
deux hippopotames invitent le visiteur à les découvrir,
subtilement posés sur quelques cailloux blancs.
Un moine, en marche, lentement déterminé,
traverse les paysages sous le regard du chat pêché.
Une silhouette tourbillonne
et l’imposante Porte du temps
raconte des histoires de passages et de lumières.
Un héron picore, un manchot se promène.
Le chien garde les moutons et les oies se reposent.
Deux grandes silhouettes discutent,
l’oiseau des marais souhaite s’envoler.  B.G.

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.”
