The 2018 summer exhibition of the Pôle Expérimental des Métiers d'Art de Nontron et du Périgord-Limousin, "Enamel, enamels, enamellers" presents the creations of about fifteen art enamellers from all over France.
Combining metal and coloured crystal, the art of enamel requires both particular dexterity and great rigour in the composition, drawing and exploration of volumes.
Practised in Asia since Antiquity, we know the importance of enamel in Limousin where it developed as early as the 12th century. Today, a new generation of enamellers is renewing the medium, its techniques and iconography. These creators wish to enhance their unique and prestigious know-how.
Paintings, sculptures, installations and other experimentations rub shoulders and form a whole that is both generous and sharp, allowing visitors to discover the variety and richness of contemporary enamel.
open from Monday to Saturday and every day in July and August
10h-13h and 14h-18h
