Bread & Roses marries a winning concept with a great new location, 7 rue de Fleurus, 75006.
A labor of love for successful restaurateur Philippe Tailleur, this petite gallery, located next to his restaurant and gourmet “deli”, provides a truly French experience allowing visitors to enjoy contemporary art, good food and wine in one location. He and his wife both believe that “art is a way of living…a way of linking people to what is most important in life…good food for the body and good art for the mind”. The current exhibition by French artist Patrick Baillet, which mixes photographic images with recognizable paintings in a unique format, ends on September 27th.
While galleries abound along the rue de Seine and neighboring streets, Bread & Roses is the only gallery on the other side of Blvd. Saint Germain…a trend which I hope will continue. Everyone is invited to attend their vernissage to celebrate the opening of the next exhibition by French figurative painter/sculptor, Eliane Larus, whose works evoke the simplicity and spontaneity of childhood on October 16th from 7-9:00 PM.
