This year’s polar temperatures and continuous rain did not prevent us from duly participating in the Bassano Fiera Franca. And even better than that, since on top of our strong delegation of farmers from the Voiron surroundings, we were able to have several painters from “Les Amis des Arts” come and show their work.
Our farmer friends decently held the Voiron stand, what with cheese and walnuts products for sale, although we thought for long that we couldn’t make it, this year’s harvest having started so late that they had to work until 4 o’clock in the morning at washing, drying and bagging…They drove back bravely on Sunday night, so that they were back at work on Monday morning.
The paintings show was organized in a beautifully restored room were the paintings were nicely shown to advantage. The several dozen comments left on the authors visitors’ books were of praise and denote a reasonable success for a first try, bad weather and insufficient advance advertising being taken into account. We shall do better next time around!
