Château Saint-Martin & Spa Unveils Art Experiences for Summer 2023

Château Saint-Martin & Spa, an Oetker Collection "Masterpiece Hotel" with French Palace distinction, has partnered with celebrated artists Agnès Sandahl and Marilyn Vergne to offer guests exclusive access to art exhibitions and experiences this summer.

A painter and ceramicist, Sandahl, has long found inspiration at Château Saint-Martin & Spa and is exhibiting several pieces in the hotel’s art gallery. Influenced by the region’s heritage and the artists who have famously roamed the neighboring village of Saint-Paul de Vence, such as Picasso, Braque and Cocteau, Sandahl has developed a color palette employed across her works that is inspired by the Château’s Provençal atmosphere. The exhibition showcases large-scale paintings and ceramic plates in a show of color underpinned by the artist’s abstract vision.

Guests may also admire Sandahl’s ceramic works while dining at the Michelin-starred Le Saint-Martin restaurant, where her presentation plates adorn the tables. Each piece is unique and handcrafted by the artist. This summer, Château Saint-Martin & Spa offers visitors the chance to explore the Agnès Sandahl gallery in the heart of the historic pottery town of Vallauris. Guests are invited on an exclusive private tour of the gallery and studio, followed by a ceramics or painting workshop with Sandahl.

In the bustling atmosphere of the Montpellier School of Fine Arts, Marilyn Vergne found her passion in working with clay. Then, in the workshops of the city of Paris, she immersed herself in the secrets of ceramics. For 30 years, her love for clay has always guided her, infusing each artwork with timeless magic, vibrating with poignant poetry. Now, guests of Château Saint-Martin & Spa are invited to the heart of the historic city, to dive into creativity during a guided ceramic workshop led by Vergne to create a personalized work of art. Every Thursday and Friday afternoon, guests can delve into this fascinating art for two hours. These sessions take place in the gardens of Château Saint-Martin & Spa or in Vergne’s gallery, the Hang’art, in Vence.
