I am back from the exhibition in Northern France and it was a blast! 😀
There were many people for the opening (probably at least a hundred, which means a lot for a little place in a little town!). And people seemed to love the exhibition very much and to really feel inspired by our work… So, we are so happy! 😃
As a reminder, this is an exhibition by the family of mine, the Jacqu’Art Family 😌✌️so there are some creations by my 2 sisters, my mother, my father and me. ☺️
Let me share a few pics! I did some pans of the exhibit. I hope they conveys in a nice way the joyful creative atmosphere of the exhibition, and the light and spacious feel of the place.
Let’s begin with the outside of the exhibition room.
By the way, feel free to click on the panoramic shots, below, to display them in a bigger size! 😉
So, there are already a lot of things to discover in the hallway!
There are some artistic photos (of mine) to see and, above all, to the left of the door, the showcase with my sketchbooks display!
(My dad is waiting just at the entrance, to welcome you! ☺️)
I talked to a lot of people who seemed really impressed by my simple everyday work. Some of them seemed even tempted to try to make a sketchbook themselves so it was a really good inspirational sharing!! 😀
In the inside, you don’t know which way to turn!! There are amazing photos here, watercolors and collages there, wire sculpture everywhere!… 😝
As you can see, the room is really enjoyable to be in, with this gorgeous light coming from the bay windows.
Through the bay windows, we can see kids coming back from the swimming pool which is just there or going to the nice creative or sportive activities taking place in the same building as the exhibition.
This creates a playful mood and allowed us to make a few outside/inside nice pics with the artworks. 😉
These are the ink on rice paper kakemonos I created for the exhibition. 😊

Let’s move on to the showcase with my mother sculptures and collages. Aren’t they so lovely, so poetic?! 😀
My mom also made a surprising setting to go with the photos my father photos shot at a local bear factory, with bear bottles, a dry stick and some clingfilm!! 😆
Here are a few other pans where you can have…
Not bored by stunning creative stuff yet?! 😛😜
Here are the two watercolors I made for the exhibit. My first watercolors in an exhibition ever!!
They come with a poem from my mother called “On my paper” which evoke a brush crying, sliding and dancing on the paper. 😊
As a conclusion, here are some close up shots my younger sister Sylvaine did in the exhibition, starting by me, with my camera and my palette full of colors!! 😙
The last photos are by © Sylvaine Jacquart.
If you have the chance to be in France in the next few days or weeks, please note that the exhibition keeps going until June the 30th, in Douai, Northern France.
Thank you for visiting virtually our exhibition! I hope you liked it!
