I am happy to share with you today this creation of the Chef Philippe LECHAUVE, tasted in Bonny-sur Loire which would have heavenly well accompanied a Pouilly-Fumé Villa Paulus 2011 : « Crab Cannelloni with green cabbage leaves, wasabi mayonnaise, pan-fried scallop-shell, Black sesame’s dressing, white tarama’s emulsion with Stem ginger ». Who is trying in the kitchen?
We are now « authorised » to reveal the identity if the artist we have chosen to show at the Estate Masson-Blondelet for the second International Fair of Contemporary Art in the Estates of Pouilly- Fumé, which will take place from the 1st to the 4th of May 2014 in Pouilly-sur Loire. It is Diane de Cicco, from whom you can see some work below, and see some more on her website.
But what is FIAAC en Pouilly-Fumé ?
In 2013, the first edition was dedicated to contemporary painting untitled : White and Colours.
Nineteen Pouilly-Fumé wine-growers (like Masson-Blondelet Estate ) were exposing nineteen artists chosen for the strenght of their work. Locals, nationals ou from abroad, those artists are representatives of the great streams of today’s painting : abstraction lyric, chromatic or gestural, neo-figuration, gross art , neo-support-surface.
Artists and wine-growers are present all together in the estates for the duration of the FIAAC in Pouilly-Fumé, this year from the 1st to the 4th of May 2014. The first ones to introduce and sell their work, and the second ones to make discover their vintages and their cuvées.
At the same time, the Pouilly-Fumé Tower and the Caveau des vignerons ( wine-grower estate), both placed at the heart of the village of Pouilly-sur-Loire, few steps away from Masson-Blondelet estate, hosting a collective exhibition from the nineteen invited artists.
A new appointment not to be missed for art and Pouilly-Fumé amateurs and works and flasks collectors ! See you soon…
