New Year Reception 2023

 New Year Reception 2023

January 15th, 2023, Hangar Vows Ceremony

For this lovely moment all together, we had the honour to have Sylvie, the Hangar's president, saying a few words for this new year 2023:

        "Mr. Mayor, ladies and gentlemen honorary presidents ..... Dear Members,
It is a great pleasure to have a traditional greeting ceremony after the covid period, and I thank you for your presence.
First of all, I would like to highlight the work accomplished in just over 3 months by Celina, treasurer, who accomplished a complete overhaul of our accounting system .  Many thanks, Celina for this remarkable work.
        I do not forget Imme, Vice-President, and all the time spent ensuring the smooth running of the Hangar and Thecla, Secretary General who has just joined the Board. It is a pleasure to be surrounded by trusted colleagues on whom I can count , thank all three of you.

And now the spearhead of the Hangar, the teaching team, a range of skills, talent, who give life to what brings together all of us here in the art world.
        A warm thank you to Nelly for oil painting, Marina Kulik for watercolor, Francesca for art therapy, Marina Teding for portraiture, Pim for acrylics who unfortunately could not join us today, Marie for sculpture and last but not least Valentine , for mixed media who started mixed media classes on Friday mornings. They welcome you every week for moments of conviviality, learning and shared happiness of artistic creation that make the success of the Hangar.
We also thank all those who support us through donations.

        We started this mandate three months and 3 weeks ago, precise, with the aim of regaining the pre-Covid dynamic. We have reinstated the Café Culture that takes place every month from now. An exhibition is already planned around Fete de St Blaise in Valbonne from January 27-February 12th, and we are talking with the mayors of Grasse, Le Cannet and Antibes to prepare future exhibitions.
The traditional Spring Trips will take place in September, as last year.
        As you can see, the Hangar is in full swing and will still offer you many intense moments in 2023. I wish you, on behalf of the Board, a surprising and creative new year, which keeps you healthy and will be a succession of happiness and successes in all areas for you, your families and your loved ones!"


We thank you all for being a part of the Hangar &

Hope to see you soon to our monthly Café Culture events!
