The Arborealists are delighted to announce they have been invited to stage a major exhibition in France at  Musee  Collegiale Sainte-Croix in Loudun. This is a very large museum and will allow for each Arborealists to exhibit several works. Tim Craven, Senior Curator of the Arborealist movement visited the  Museum to meet the Curator in July 2017 with  the artists Guillaume Brandy and Francis Dalschaert and estimated that approximately 90 works will fill the exhibition space.The exhibition will run from 9 March - 28 April 2019.

Loudun is a substantial medieval hill-top city an hour’s drive to the north of Poitiers. The venue is a former church and is a large, beautiful and prestigious space. 

This project started in 2016 when a group of Arborealists visited the village of Vaux en Couhe to meet with French colleagues and to capture  the forests, woods and trees in the area. An exhibition in 2017  at the Musee Dortoirs des Moines at Saint Benoit near Poitiers was described in the local press as sublime. The culmination of the collaboration will be seen at the prestigious Musee Collegial de Saint Croix, Loudun in spring of 2019 where over 100 works of art from the Arborealists and their French guests can be seen featuring sites of special interest in France as well as individual trees.
