Arrivals from Dordogne, six painters exhibit all week at the Récollets convent (1). This group of friends forms the Art Quantum group. Their exhibition, called “Colors Story”, takes place in the two exhibition rooms. Claude Jarry des Loges, one of the painters, had already come to present her creations last year. She loved the welcome given to her by the people of Cognac so much that she asked her friends from Bergerac, with whom she is used to exhibiting, to join her in coming back this year and presenting their works together.

Each of the painters has a unique technique and a particular style. Priory room, Claudine Menou, the one who created the link between the different artists by giving them painting lessons, presents her latest creations, more refined, inspired by music, where colorful birds are perched on black and white partitions. white. Dana, whose real name is Danielle Manier, presents abstract figurative paintings. We see the color bursting from the canvas. “Painting is an emotion,” she confides. His in this case. Alongside them, Christiane Hess, known as Chrystal, paints “to let off steam and escape from the daily routine”. This painter, tired of figurative art, reveals very spatial and colorful forms “which express the joy of living”.

Salle Marvaud, we find the instigator of this exhibition, Claude Jarry des Loges. She likes to paint when it is intuitive and appreciates that one can visually enter into her paintings. Nadine Goepp offers works in two different styles. She adopted a technique of painting on crackle and uses another painting technique, abstract, for which she uses brushes, squeegees and knives. Finally, Annie Papp combines painting and drawing in a semi-abstract graphic style representing motifs inspired by landscapes.

(1) The exhibition is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day until Saturday May 18. The opening takes place Wednesday May 15 at 6 p.m.
