A visit to the Montreux Art Gallery

Posted on: 15th November 2013 | Category: Music, theater and art, Swiss adventures

Contemporary art received real appreciation from our students this month with the 9th edition of Salon d'Art Contemporain, at Montreux Music & Convention Centre. The girls spent an afternoon enjoying the many different media presented to them in this huge temporary centre of art. From paintings to the more unusual, digital, light art, they were able to ponder over an extraordinary number of diverse works and to formulate opinions on all sorts of creative practices.

Within this complex, artists and gallery owners were present, encouraging the girls to ask questions over their work: is it difficult to come up with ideas being an artist? Is it difficult to sell your work in the current climate? The trip gave the girls an insight into a difficult but very beautiful industry, allowing them to gain a better understanding of the hard work that individuals put in. Let us hope they walked away inspired and motivated in whichever topics intrigue them.
