In 2000, the artist Daniel Chotard, decided to create a space for meetings and exchange. A space where he himself would like to visit in the world - a place where a person could feel comfortable with the spaciousness and tools to create your craftmanship and art work.
With this project in mind, an association was developed. Since 2002, all exebitions and shows are organized in summer. This place was originally called, “résidence d’artistes de cantagal” (residencial artist center), then later „gîte" (Holiday Retreat) was included. This allowed this place to remain free from excluding non-artists and artist-compitions, a place for all guests to feel welcome.
During the rest of the year, the non-active-season, Barbara and Daniel, reside and work further and are your contact persons.
Barbara’s mother-tongue is German and Daniel’s French. You can also use spanish and english.
