A Retrospective Exhibition of Peter Wyart’s Work

wyart retro 2If you missed the chance to see Peter Wyart’s exhibition of recent work in Montreuil last month, put the dates of his July show, a retrospective of 30 years of his work, in your diary.

At the last Wyart exhibition we attended the vernissage and decided to buy two paintings, only to be pipped at the post by another buyer who got his order in a couple of minutes earlier. It seems if you want to own a painting by Peter Wyart, you need to make sure you’re at the front of the queue.


More Than Just A Christmas Craft Market

The Christmas Craft Market that Frogsiders prefers is the one that’s held each year in Montreuil at 119 rue Pierre Ledent. This year it will take place on Saturday and Sunday, 1 & 2 December.

First, it’s held in the indoor comfort of a magnificent house with vast rooms. Second, the quality of the craft items on show is first class, and they are all genuinely the product of local craftspeople (unlike some of the stuff at other Christmas Markets). And, finally, it is as much a meeting place as a shopping expedition. You will meet people you know (or would like to know) there, some you may not have seen since last December’s event.

For both shopping and social reasons Frogsiders says “Do Not Miss It!”
