La foire de Narbonne (28 April – 6 May 2012) is normally the place where you would buy a swimming pool, order your windows or even test drive a car. This year the Ateliers d’Art du Pays Cathare were invited to exhibit. 7 of the Atelier d’Art du Pays Cathare decided to take advantage of this offer.
The stand is located in Hall 4 and shows an extensive range of artisanat d’art savoir-faire. Boris Klein’s handmade knives, Verre et Bois and their glass top over a wine barrel. Marble art objects, ceramic / mosaic work, a re-upholsterer and obviously jewellery by myself and Bob Kimberley.
The Bjangles Collection as shown above are proving a great success!
And if you are tired of us…why not come along and savour the wonderful delights of the Pecheurs from Port la Nouvelle. Each day they offer their catch and a glass of wine – a wonderful lunchtime apéro for fish lovers!
See you there!

A new photographic exhibition, called EXPATS PORTRAITS, showcasing the work of Tony Slaughter who moved to the region six years ago, opens at Le Clap art gallery in Paraza on 5 August 2011.
EXPATS PORTRAITS features 16 people, of varying nationalities, different ages and diverse backgrounds, all of whom have chosen the Languedoc as their new home. Apart from taking their photographs, Tony Slaughter interviewed each subject about their reasons for moving to the region.
Today, the Languedoc-Roussillon has become home to many thousands of men, women and children from every country in Europe – and beyond. Latest available figures show that the population of the Languedoc-Roussillon was 2.58 million at 1 January 2008. In the decade since 1999, the annual population growth of the region averaged 1.3 per cent – twice the average growth for the whole of France.
This virtual population “explosion” is due in no small measure to inward immigration from the rest of France but also from abroad. Stats show that four European countries account for almost three quarters of overseas property owners in the Languedoc. Germany comes top, closely followed by the UK, then Belgium and Switzerland.
But no matter what country they arrived from, each new resident from outside France – an “expat” – has a story to tell. Why? How? When?
Photo-journalist Tony Slaughter said: “I hope to be able to find a patron or sponsor who can help me publish a book with the photographs in this exhibition together with the interviews in full.
“I believe it would make a fascinating social document. And prove the point that every picture does tell a story.”
A number of other artists will also be showing their work at the exhibition at Le Clap art gallery which has the overall title VISAGES MOSAÏQUE. The exhibition opens at 18.30 on Friday 5 August, 2011, and runs until 4 September. The gallery is open between 15.00 and 19.00 Wednesday to Sunday and can be found beside the Canal du Midi, quite close to the Café du Port.
