The Wooden Blocks are exhibited in Valbonne until 27 May!

Remember the War and Peace blocs we painted?

They are now part of a 'wall' created by artists, locals and children of Valbonne, in an exhibition inside the Salle St Esprit (next to the church in Valbonne).

The blocs are part of an exhibition to commemorate the first world war.

Last Saturday was the official opening, and Patricia Civel's impressive book  about the brave Valbonnais Albert Pourcel was presented in the presence of the mayor, senateur, and other dignitaries.
I can really recommend the book!It has lots of beautiful old pictures of Valbonne, the original letters of Albert Pourcel, which give a good image of how he experienced the war, missed his girl - and the story created by Patricia around the actual events. There is even a watercolour in it by Marina Kulik...

  Price: 29€

Until Sunday 27 May incl. you can admire the blocs and the other art, and buy the book, the expo is open every day except Monday, from 2 - 6 pm... 

For those of you who can't make it - here are some pictures (note that there is SO much more! )
