Saint-Tropez Welcomes First Art Fair
May 19, 2017 by
The beaches of Saint-Tropez are so beautiful they’re basically works of arts themselves–so it’s not surprising that the French Riviera is welcoming its first ever contemporary art fair at Plage de Pampelonne, the most famous of Saint-Tropez’s beaches.
Art Pampelonne Presqu’ile de Saint-Tropez will feature 60 contemporary art galleries from across the globe and open to the public on Thursday, June 29, 2017, from 2-9 PM. Visitors can also enjoy the work of these notable international artists on Friday, June 30, and Saturday, July 1, from 12-9 PM and on Sunday, July 2, from 12-8 PM.
Nikki Beach Saint Tropez will welcome art show attendees throughout the duration of the fair and will also partner with Perrier Jouët to host a pop-up Champagne bar within the Art Pampelonne pavilion.
Before Saint-Tropez became the luxe seaside resort that it’s now known to be today, it was first a hub of artists. Saint-Tropez attracted French New Wave filmmakers and modern artists, like Matisse and Paul Signac. It is also the birthplace of pointillism and Fauvism. With such a rich history steeped in art, it’s a wonder that we’ve had to wait so long for an art fair to hit the coast of Saint-Tropez! This inaugural art fair is one you won’t want to miss.
