A space shared by several artists and craftsmen, this is the concept of L’ApARTé proposed by Aude Pradel.
At 21 bis avenue Jean-Jaurès, L’ApARTé welcomes customers or the curious from Tuesday to Saturday. At the same time art gallery, den of curiosities, solidarity shop, Aude Pradel, jewelry designer, welcomes you in the middle of art or craft objects imagined, drawn, sculpted, painted, shaped, created by 21 enthusiasts from the department or beyond for three of them: “After creating my jewelry on rue Raspail, I wanted to offer a place shared by different artists and craftsmen, so I opened L’ApARTé on October 14 last, recalls Aude. I wanted to surround myself with creators and artists with very diverse know-how. It is a solidarity shop where the creators share the permanence according to the possibilities.”
Placed well on the shelves or hung on the picture rails of the premises, the works are exposed to the gaze immediately seduced by the visitor, eager to discover and choose the creation which will come to decorate the house or will make a beautiful gift for a loved one: “Objects for children and for adults, there is something for all tastes and all ages.”
Exchanges of knowledge
At L’ApARTé, exchanges between creators are commonplace: “It’s an exchange of knowledge, we can even do initiation for people who are interested, depending on everyone’s availability.”
In this world of beauty and work well done, there are many choices, here Isabelle Guillet’s mural fresco, there Sébastien Puech’s artistic ironwork, Séverine’s wooden objects, Aude’s jewellery, games in pebbles by Sophie, painted pebbles, stained glass windows, hats rub shoulders with mirrors, wooden sculptures, cardboard by Agnès, the art of glass by Norbert, jewelry by Pauline and many other beautiful creations. Everything is beautiful at L’ApARTé, which makes it difficult to choose: “But the prices are affordable”, emphasizes Aude. “Art is an infinitely precious good, a refreshing and warming beverage, which restores the stomach and the mind to the natural balance of the ideal”, said Charles Baudelaire. So without hesitation, let’s push the door of L’ApARTé for the pleasure of the eyes and the soul.
