Five Year Retrospective at Moulin à Nef
A five-year retrospective exhibition featuring the work of VCCA Fellows who have been in residence at Moulin à Nef was recently on display at our studio center in France. The exhibition includes the work of 34 Fellows and included drawings, poetry, photography, paintings, film, fiction, essays and CD images of work, events, Auvillar, and participants.
In addition, almost 40 people attended the community dinner held on June 15 in the Moulin à Nef's spacious ceramics studio. Some were friends we've known since our first visit five years ago. Some had never been to Moulin à Nef. Several joined as members of VCCA France (Please ask us how you can join for $25!) To a person, they delighted in seeing the work of VCCA Fellows again and sharing stories of your visits. They were especially touched by our Fellows' written remembrances of their village, which appeared alongside work in the exhibition.
Amanda Fields, Brian Silberman, Alison Chandler and Susan Schmidt are currently in residence at Moulin à Nef. As is customary, they will each share their work in a public forum for the benefit and enjoyment of the village.
