  • We had the pleasure of visiting the show organized by the Association Saint Sever in color as part of the benedictine Abbey of Saint Sever of Rustan (Hautes Pyrenees) this 20th edition of the Painting & Sculpture Exhibition runs until July 10, 2016 from 14 h to 18 h: this year more than 80 artists, painters and sculptors from the greater South West present more than 250 paintings and sculptures , Painting & SCULPTURE will be honoured with two prestigious guests: the painter JEAN PIERRE UGARTE: when the eye stroke the canvas of Jean Pierre, the Viewer is caught. He escapes, walks, hides, hides, strays, then finds himself. In the distance, sprung from the depths, something called, reveals feelings buried for a long time already. Then another detail we catch, we reassure, leads us, then let us drift. Then the reverie installs and keeps us. There, once was the man. Then something stopped talking. Nature has reclaimed his rights, hung his lush vegetation on the steep ridges of a mountain, where the boat stopped to become concrete. Hope is reborn, with wires stretched, a waterfall that gushes, a light that is a guest, a bird which spends. Then the magic of possible is part of the challenge of an unlikely world. The sculptor CHRISTIAN ice: I carve on pieces of wood found out in nature... My work is guided by the material and is based on the structure of wood, its original forms, its raw energy, his first swing. I'm looking to show the pristine beauty, giving them a presence and connections with the human body. The sculpture is the body double and challenges us about ourselves, about our relationship to time, to the nature. The confusing aspect of the material and ambiguous forms give sculptures a mineral, plant, and human identity. Sculpt wood to be in contact with the world, to find essential rhythms. Seek agreement with nature to agree with yourself. Marco GILA, Bruno SCHMELTZ, Rémi TROTEREAU..., well of other artists will accompany them for this event. Allow 2 hours for the visit, you won't regret! Contact email: stseverencouleur@yahoo,fr

  • Church of the old benedictine Abbey founded around the year 800, whose prosperity was undermined by conflicts that devastated the region during the hundred years war. It is a monumental building whose entire architecture, well that strongly marked by the characteristic style Benedictine, develops the eventful history steps. Inside: paintings, including a respectable "baptism of Jesus", various murals including St. Pierre and heads of cherubs, statues (from the 15th to the 17th century), including a Honourable Pietà, busts-reliquaries, beautiful stained glass to characters whose recount some episodes from the life of saint Sever, colored glass in geometric patterns to the high altar, carved stalls, baptismal, confessionals, double tribune, many elements of the destroyed parts as the capitals carved and figured, processional banner. Finally, at the bottom left, don't miss the wonderful sacristy panelled and floored (woodwork from the 18th century), which contains some superb liturgical furniture. Note that the cloister of Saint-Sever was purchased in 1890 by the town of Tarbes, which got him into the Massey gardens where it is still visible. Anecdote: when we arrived the door was ajar and we have had to slightly push to enter. We had almost finished our visit, when a lady, cigarette in mouth and reeking of tobacco, more mother Denis outraged that sweet Tinkerbell, stumbled us upon the dawn of the innocent and in the choir. What are we doing here? Where there was not to be...! It was a mistake if the door was open, someone not him having not regulatory closed after a funeral mass that took place... God knows when! As we finished our very interesting visit, we left, under the evil eye of the bignole which still has bite moustache not have precipitated us in a CL - of-low-pit! So if adventure you want to visit this "reserved sanctuary", take care to check that it is between June 1 and September 30. The rest of the year this beautiful heritage is out of reach. For more information contact the Town Hall at 05 62 96 63 93 or 05 62 96 65 67. A visit, if it possible, essential. Classified Historical Monuments, by order of 22 September 1914. Classified Historical Monuments, by order of 22 March 1991. Admitted to Historical Monuments, by Decree of February 23, 1999.

  • Certainly, the place is not a hot spot for tourism and yet. Push all lovers of art and architectural history, the visit of the Abbey is a must. It contains items that we see no or more elsewhere. In particular a completely clothed piece of woodwork of the eighteenth century or a fountain with a dragon! The building has yet to be restored to part, but the visit is a great moment of discovery. So feel free to come out of the box.
