« Un artiste dans votre chambre »              Communiqué 2016 – Français / English

Le partenariat du Domaine du Château des Vigiers avec La Galerie Bénédicte Giniaux se poursuit avec passion et élégance pour intégrer l’Art dans cet établissement de prestige : dès le mois de mai, 16 chambres de luxe accueillent chacune une ou deux œuvres d’art, signée par certains artistes de la galerie.
Pour la troisième édition « Un artiste dans votre chambre », 8 des 18 artistes de la galerie sont à l’honneur dans les chambres du Château des Vigiers :
Alfons Alt – Christine Bourcey – Jean-Pierre Dall’Anese – Christophe Loyer – Sylvie Mazereau – Patrice Mesnier – Magdalena Reinharez.
Evidemment ces œuvres sont en vente et les clients de l’hôtel peuvent les acquérir.

Depuis plus de 20 ans, Bénédicte Giniaux organise des expositions dans des lieux atypiques et aime s’adapter aux espaces pour créer des ambiances particulières, ayant toujours comme double objectif, celui de surprendre le visiteur et celui de valoriser le travail d’artistes reconnus.
Cet événement assez confidentiel, s’accorde avec la présentation de 3 très grands tableaux d’Emmanuel Michel dans la Brasserie du Domaine des Vigiers, Le Chai et permet également d’introduire la prochaine exposition d’été : « Sculptures au Jardin 2016 » qui aura lieu sur les pelouses des dépendances du château.

« An artist in your room »

The partnership between the Château des Vigiers and the Galerie Bénédicte Giniaux continues with passion and elegance, as Art is integrated in this prestigious domain : from the beginning of May, 16 Chateau rooms have been chosen to welcome one or two works of art each, all signed by some of the artists of the gallery.
The gallery displays the figurative art as a priority, which is mainly customised and stylized about the Animal world and Travels themes; without neglecting nudes and still lifes. It is an art gallery, where dream, poetry, tenderness, humour and witness of life dominate; and where the works of art are signed by renowned artists, in France and abroad for most of them, all deeply committed to their creation.
This year, for this third edition of “An artist in your room”, 8 of the 18 artists of the gallery have the place of honour in some of the rooms of the Château des Vigiers:
Alfons Alt – Christine Bourcey – Jean-Pierre Dall’Anese – Christophe Loyer – Sylvie Mazereau – Patrice Mesnier – Magdalena Reinharez.
Of course, all of these works of art are on sale and can be purchased by the guests.
Bénédicte Giniaux organises some exhibitions in atypical places for more than 20 years. She loves to adapt her plans to the available space in order to create some specific atmospheres with a double objective, surprise the visitor and enhance the work of reputed artists.
This quite confidential event is well matched with the exhibition of 3 big-sized paintings made by Emmanuel Michel in the old wine making building “Brasserie le Chai”. And it is also an introduction for this summer new exhibition: “Sculptures au Jardin 2016” which will be presented outdoor, on the grassland in front of the Dépendances Suites of Chateau des Vigiers.

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.”
