Already one year of existence.
Maison Particulière allows works of art from private collections to be shown to the public. We had wished this House to give the opportunity to collectors to lend a broad choice of works of art, a choice originate by them around a theme we are suggesting. Visitors are aware of the pleasure and luck to appreciate pieces of art, which, most of the time, are not visible.
|The warm welcome our visitors have been awarding us with is a joy. Maison Particulière’s proposal, which we have aspired to be under the sign of sharing, is a success. New and many visitors, and collectors, have expressed their delight in discovering our House, “particulière” and private certainly, but especially open to the public, few days a week.
Thursday April the 19th, our new art exhibit Struggle(s) started and will last until Saturday June the 30th.
More than ever, we would like to express our gratitude to the artists whose works are shown at Maison Particulière thanks to the collectors who participate with us to Struggle(s). They have been particularly present during our opening week, for the utmost pleasure of our members: Josep Niebla, our artist guest, from Barcelona; Jane Hammond, who came from New York; Jan Van Imschoot from Gent; Chila Burman and Dexter Dalwood, from London; Carlos Aires, from Madrid; and Helmut Stallaerts from Brussels.
Once again, our deepest thanks go to Karen Reynders and Martine de Limburg Stirum from Art Brussels who, by including Maison Particulière in the Off fair program, enable a great number of visitors to discover our House. For a whole week Brussels shone as a welcoming and vibrant city, generous with its collections and collectors.
Because of their active and friendly support, Degroof Bank, since the beginning, have helped us make our House well known and recognized to new and interested, as well as considerate, visitors and collectors. It is a pleasure and an honor for us to have their encouragement and to have them at our sides.
Without them, no art exhibit at Maison Particulière; Struggle(s) is able to show amazing choices of art thanks to 3 couple of art lovers and collectors: from a 3 000 year old archeology piece to rare modern drawings, from young contemporary artists’ works to tribal art. Again, collectors are showing their sensibility and openness to all forms and expressions of art.
Our deepest and affectionate regards go to Jean Claude Rachline who has illustrated the works of Struggle(s) with original pieces of writings, full of sensitivity and heart.
We are grateful to our members who, since the origin of our project, support and care for us. They appreciate the special mood we have developed at Maison Particulière: a welcoming house, a place where you can quietly take the time to appreciate art and read about art.
We are delighted in having seen you in such great number those first days of Struggle(s), we are delighted at the thought of seeing you more in the future days, in a regained peaceful atmosphere, with your friends.
A foretaste of September: Maison Particulière from Wednesday the 13th will open, from Tuesday to Sunday, with one late opening on Thursdays until 7.30pm. Wednesdays will remain for the members only.
