Le Lavoir - Saint Germain Boucles de Seine
Chemin de halage
If you're looking for an unusal site to display your work just 15 minutes from Paris, then Le Lavoir (wash house), a treasure of the heritage of Carrières-sur-Seine, is the place to come. Pay a visit and you'll soon succumb to its charm.
Steeped in history, this site is part of the town's rich heritage. Built of stone, with an atrium and central basin, it is ideally located on the "poetic" Impressionist trail that runs along the Seine from Carrières-sur-Seine to Louveciennes. It is the living witness of a period when many an impressionist painter would set up their easels on the banks of the River Seine. The charming little stone bridge features in many paintings and is another symbol of that era, in which it also places the wash house.
Art fits quite naturally into this key exhibition site. The ancient stone construction shelters your work magnificently as it is enchanced by the zenithal lighting. The structure radiates an ambiance of bygone days that reminds us of the soft strokes of the Impressionists' brushes. Your work is exalted in the perfect showcase.
All year round.
