Is the current art gallery format still efficient?To this question, the founder of Galerie Charron, created in 2007, answers that it is essential to know how to adapt over the years to the different expectations of collectors and art lovers around the world, in order to be able to promote the gallery's artists over the long term on the French and foreign contemporary art scenes.
As the art market and new technologies evolve, Galerie Charron reflects the image of its founder. Passionate about art, communication and Franco-German culture after a career within the television channel Arte, Cécile Charron likes to confront the cultural differences she knows well by establishing a dialogue between the works of her renowned artists and promising talents from all horizons.
Gallery Charron accompanies her contemporary artists, some of them since the beginning of the gallery's creation, in the development of their most ambitious projects in dedicated spaces, at international contemporary art fairs and, of course, online on the gallery's website. Gallery Charron's offer has been digitised in 2020, notably through interviews with visual artists, in order to offer the greatest possible visibility to its exhibition programme of contemporary artists. Galerie Charron has also founded "Artkemia", a support programme dedicated to visual artists.
Galerie Charron's main focus is on a diversity of expressive and narrative works that it calls its "coup de coeurs", which it fully acknowledges; a production of figurative and abstract art translated by the mediums of painting, sculpture, photography and works on paper. Over the last few years, Galerie Charron has expanded its art collection with internationally renowned artists. Galerie Charron is a member of the Art Galleries Committee.
