img_0336   img_0341The Alsatian of the World met in their home land of Alsace (Eastern France) on Sunday 27th of August to celebrate their top talents. It was a great French “ambiance” with Alsatian from all over the world gathering together in the picturesque town of Andlau. There were engineers, CEOs, backers, bankers, rally car drivers, chefs and even artiimg_0352img_0357sts… Some of the greatest Chefs prepared a wonderful 3 stars Michelin lunch and the officials like Jean Rottner the Mayor of Mulhouse welcomed and congratulated the recipients and in particular our favourite French-Kiwi artist Florence ichter-Simon

Opening night at the Gallery in Railway Street

 

A big thanks to all of you who were able to attend the opening of Florence’s exhibition on Friday. It was an awesome event and it was great to having so many people attending.

We were particularly honoured to have the Honourable Thierry MARIANI former Minister and member of the French Parliament representing the French overseas attending the event during his short visit to New Zealand.

If you couldn’t make it on Friday, it not a problem, as Florence and I will be pleased to welcome you on Wednesday 20th of august from 6.00 pm to 8.00pm at Railway Street Studio – 8, Railway street in New market for a private viewing.

The great news is that not only you will see some awesome artworks, but the Jazzband “Pardon My French”  will perform some jazz standards in French throughout the evening. Feel free to come along with friends and family
