ABOUT

The Art Design Gallery (ADG), is a contemporary gallery of sensual proportions located in the heart of Guethary; a charming and historic village in the South of France. Founded by Elka Leonard, a french artist and painter, and organized by Alison Granger. The gallery represents emerging artists dedicated in the fields of painting, photography, sculpture and design.
Elka and Alison work hand in hand as they are both very active and passionate about art and culture. Together they are able to meet and discover different local and international artists. They offer those whom they find innovative, an inviting space to display their creations. Both women have a common desire of creating an impressive exhibition and initiating the public into the magic of art apart from the norms of daily life. They want to create a moment of magic , and are inviting the public on journey into the heart of the creative process. The gallery serves a higher purpose than being just a place to show case art. It is more of an immersion into the alchemy of these creative works. The gallery strives to give those who visit a unique sense of inspiration and a glimpse of magic.
The gallery taps into the emotions of those who enter and strives to spread a dynamic and perceptive aura of magic and marvelousness. The gallery focuses on projects that are both artistic as well as those that enter the event sector, such as hosting and providing the atmosphere for events.
This year, the gallery is already in the process of a creative and innovative collaboration with the Hotel Regina in Biarritz, France. Selected artists will be chosen who will then create specific artwork in line with the theme of the Roaring 20’s. Linked to the history of the hotel that was created during the second half of the empire, this theme will give birth to a special and innovative exhibition from September- October 2018. Along with the exhibition, a collectors’ book will also be produced that will describe the project in detail. The book will be signed by the Art Design Gallery in exclusive partnership with the Hotel Regina.
In addition to the Hotel Regina, the Art Design Gallery is also collaborating with hotel Miramar ( a 5 star hotel) along with Hotel Silhouette ( a four star hotel) both located in Biarritz. The gallery will participate with 2 festivals organized by the city of Biarritz this year. The first one being the Roaring 20’s festival and the other being an International Jazz Festival. This is just the beginning. Art fares and social media are the new fields that Elka and Alison are on their way to conquering. Although the gallery is young, as it was just created in 2017, the gallery has clearly made its mark on the art market. Since it’s opening, the gallery has experienced a successful year, and is looking forward to many more to come.
