Curiosity Julien - Animateur web By Julien - Animateur web, the 05 December 2014

Paris has its 36, Quai des Orfèvres. Niort has its 36, Quai des Arts. On one side the Regional office of the Criminal Investigation Department, other one of the professionals of art professions. Nothing to do, we’re ok, but the name of this niortaise association created in 2013 call up to the curiosity. And curious in the Tourist office Niort Marais Poitevin, we are ! Then I went on the side of 36, Brisson street to discover what it took place there…

In 36 of the street Brisson, 36 Quai des Arts holds it its shop. Under the square of halls, in a stone arched space, Florence Piel assures the welcome and the advice. Jewels, sculptures, fabrics, tableware, fashion accessories… the works of the professionals of art professions offer themselves for me. They are more than 30 to join in 36 Quai des Arts in Deux-Sèvres, from diverse jobs : ceramist, cabinet maker, leather worker, mosaïste of art, photographer… More than a shop, it is a real place of exhibition !

For a city as Niort, certified "City and art professions", it is a real chance of a lifetime to possess such a shop to promote the wealth and the diversity of the art professions of the department. And at the approach of Christmas, it is also a chance of a lifetime for the people in lack of gifts. In 36 Quai des Arts, you are sure to find sometimes unique, quality works, which will please your circle of acquaintances.

Inaugurated in July, 2014, the shop of 36 Quai des Arts welcomes every 3 months a creative craftsman and an artist. At present, the painter Laurent Dibot and the sculptor Olivier Martin are for the honor till the end of December. They will be replaced from January by 2 new guests. It is the opportunity to come regularly to discover new works.

36 Quai des Arts aims to be to be also a place of exchanges. Indeed, Saturday a month, member creative craftsman of the association comes to make you discover his job around a breakfast. Opened to the Friends of 36 and to the Ambassadors of Deux-Sèvres, the breakfasts of 36 are the opportunity to meet a craftsman and to discuss with him of his job, its works…

You see, the art, and the artists, are not inaccessible, then meeting in 36 !
