    Discover Southern Burgundy in a region known for its unique Romanesque architecture (Cluny, Paray-le-Monial and many more) and off course its famous Charolais Beef !

    Less than two hours from Lyon, Paris (TGV), Geneva (car).
    We have our studios and normally in summer (July/August) we organizse different art events. Not this year because of the move and the building project.
    We hope to reopen in 2020 especially as it is the tenth anniversary of the Biennale d’Art Contemporain de Marcigny (71)

    We have one cat.
