Description: Sculpture for beginners

Marie-Claude Gallard, also known as Marieke, is a sculptor based in Villard Notre Dame. Having been a painter for 30 years, she now produces work that reflects a geo-poetical approach to Oisans. Her sculptures are totem-like constructions that combine a variety of materials, including wood, stone, bone and plaster. Since settling in Villard Notre Dame, she has also been working on a series of “high-reliefs” and “bogeymen” inspired by legendary tales of Oisans.

Marie-Claude organizes this event as part of the “Oisans Route des savoir-faire”. This "Route" brings together all the artisans, artists, producers and cultural sites of Oisans that are willing to open the doors of their workshop, farm or museum to share knowledge with the general public. The “Oisans Route des savoir-faire” opens the door to Oisans mountain culture, the richness of its heritage and the many facets of local expertise. Following the winding roads, you will be able to enjoy varied scenery and meet vibrant local characters. Above all, you are sure to appreciate the quality of their work and a taste of their produce!
