This year is the 28th annual Grand Prix de Peinture du Castellet sponsored by the Rotary Club de Saint-Cyr Vallee de Saint Come.
The exposition opened on Friday the 8th of September and the exhibit will be up through the 16th of September. This will be the second time I have exhibited. The first time I won first prize!
The feudal village, as described below, is to me, one of the most charming villages in the south of France, overlooking the Cote d’Azur, and very close to where they make one of the best rose wines I’ve ever tasted… the Bandol winery. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, drop by and enjoy the charm of Castellet and some excellent art.
We took advantage of attending, then doing a bit of sightseeing and having dinner at a restaurant overlooking an incredible view of the valley below… beautiful domaines with their neat, never ending rows of rich green vineyards and the contrasting patterns of the grey green orchards of olive trees.
