What you need to know

The Galerie-Atelier L’Alcôve is managed by a collective of eight resident artists. It is therefore the artists who validate or not the applications: following the artists’ vote, the result will be communicated directly to the artists who have applied.

There are two application sessions.

For the exhibition period from January to June 2024

  • Receipt of applications up to and including 5 June 2023

All types of art are accepted: photography, painting, sculpture, silk-screen printing, collage, etc.

In the same way, group exhibitions are also possible (duo, trio, collective…).

The exhibitions last twenty days, and you have the entire exhibition space at your disposal. The exhibition is hung on Tuesday, and unhung from the last Sunday of the exhibition. A vernissage and a finissage can be organised, as well as open days for the artist and the public to meet.


We will take care of your communication, which includes the creation and printing of two posters and 50 flyers, as well as visibility on our social networks (Facebook and Instagram) and the local press.


You will also have an online gallery to present yourself on our website in the guest artists section and an article on the Alcove’s blog.
