Other sight.

One may not understand painting… But one may like painting and angling.

Festival of painting 2009 in Magné, on the bank of the Sévre Niortaise river in Poitevin Marsh known as "mouillé", (wet).
The festival orgnanized each year the 3rd weekend of July, is a contest of painting and drawing open to all the painters. During 2 days, the participating painters, of all discipline, must exclusively carry out a work on the territory of the commune. Only one signed and not framed work can be subjected to the appreciation of a jury, chaired by the guests of honor, composed international artists and partners.
This festival, in first position in France for this kind of demonstration, accomodates 300 artists and 15000 visitors, and acquired a national and international recognition.
