JP Molenaar’s Art Show | 09/10/2020-24/11/2020 | All Day

JP Molenaar's Art Show

Stop by the library from October 9th to November 24th during opening hours to see JP Molenaar’s Art Show. The exhibition is free and open to the public! On Friday October 9th, meet the artist between 4 pm and 6 pm!

JP Molenaar is a painter and the owner of the gallery Trois Murs in Savennières. Through his art, he tangoes with the duality of life with which he colors his own life. He believes that one can choose to do, or not. To take pleasure in things others may dismiss as whimsy. He also feels that the state of mind of individuals impacts their sense of reality. In his paintings, he prefers to portray those who attempt to hide their secrets but who, ultimately, reveal them with a simple gesture, a lowering of the eyes for example. He immortalizes such moments of revelation with his paintbrush. In each piece of art he creates, he attempts to provoke emotions with splashes of color, carefully chosen, or at times, simply lustily applied.


Books and Tea | 15/10/2020 | 2:00 pm-3:30 pm

“Books and Tea” is a monthly meeting for bookworms and tea drinkers. Bring a book you’ve really enjoyed, talk about it and pass it on! The group will meet from 2 to 3:30 pm at the tea shop in town called “La Cour”. No need to sign up, just come and enjoy!


Garden Club visit | 15/10/2020 | 3:00 pm-6:00 pm

Garden Club visit

The garden club invites you to discover the beautiful gardens in the area!

This visit is to the Manoir de Clairefontaine, in Baugé. An authentic medieval manor, transformed in the 15th century, surrounded by 5 hectares of landscaped park with animals and ponds. We will have a short visit of the manor and then hopefully we will be able to enjoy the Autumn leaf colours in the park.

Please note that this visit will be on the third Thursday of the month, not the first one!

This activity is open to library members and offers visits once a month to a garden between April and October. For more information and/or to sign up for this visit please send an email to Sylvie Leys  at elliagardenclub@gmail.com.
