In a Marcel-Pagnol hall of the great days on Friday May 24, the Cévennes Essor invited to the opening of its 80th anniversary exhibition a whole audience of artists and their relatives, elected officials and residents completing the audience.

President Daniel Cros greeted and applauded the members of the office, as well as all the artists of the Cévennes Essor, adults and children, for the quality of their work. Completing the very beautiful exhibition of students’ works on the walls, a selection of paintings by illustrious painters who made the history of the association found its place. The works of Lacoste, Céssenat, Canonge, Roux, Feydédié, Savajol, Sauzet, Lombardo, Mialhe…, so many testimonies to the importance of the association born in 1944 under the name Essor cévenol – literary and artistic society.

Presentation of medals and distinctions

An anniversary marked by numerous medal presentations and distinctions, Élisabeth Francezon was awarded the Marcel and Jacques Feydédié prize. Acclaimed speeches, Mayor Laurence Baldit, while contemplating the exhibition, said: “We are surrounded by colors, by emotions. They are born from rigor, attention, observation, patience. It is the work that reveals talent and allows it to flourish. You hold a place extremely important in your promotion of culture.”

Failing to hand over the keys to the new premises that the Cévennes Essor will occupy at the start of the school year, the councilor anticipated the constitution of a new trousseau, offering a key ring bearing the image of the Puits Ricard. “A wonderful association, an admirable association”said the mayor of Salles-du-Gardon, Georges Brioudes, who was full of praise like Laurent Aiglon, elected in Sainte-Cécile-d’Andorge, or even Gilberte Moulière, Branoux’s first deputy. les-Taillades: “L’Essor Cévennes is a meeting place, but also an open door to culture.”

Patrick Malavieille, honorary mayor and vice-president of the departmental council responsible for culture, declared: “How far we have come since the creation of l’Essor in 1944. Poets, painters, caught up in the same movement of freedom and a fierce desire to bring culture to La Grand-Combe at a time when we not necessarily expected it With the Stade Sainte-Barbe and Les Joyeux Minors, the Essor Cévennes is one of the three oldest associations in the country. As Daniel Cros wrote in his book, From Surrealism to Realism. it’s really about “living, painting and thinking about the world”. May this appetite for art and culture last and continue.”

Exhibition open Tuesday 28 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday May 29 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
