” The Gallery ”
Established in January 2003, the Gallery Arcanes is located in the heart of the “Carré Rive Gauche” a well known antic-dealers district in Paris 7th. She combines two partners, Anne Deconinck and Geoffrey Renaud. They forged their work experience for 15 years in the Auctions of Drouot as well as in the Paris Flea Market. Specialized in the Decorative arts of the XX th century ( 1920-1970 ), the Gallery shows the various ornamental currents of this century.
She presents the best of the decorators and the cabinet makers, documentations or origin in the support. The Gallery exhibits at the same time decorators qualified “safe value” but also attempts to promote creators less known by the general public or the periods of their creation less mediatised.
The ceramic of the XX th century is also very present in the gallery Arcanes, the intention being to emphasize the great masters of the enamel.
The Gallery shows all year long Valérie Hermans and jean Girel’s ceramic work. Both are contemporary French artists.
