Terra’Sylva: the meeting of floral art and visual arts

What can floral art and visual arts do together? Those who ask the question may find the answer by going to the 3rd edition of Terra’Sylva which will take place on October 26 and 27 at the Pavillon de la Ville in Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe). This year’s theme will be “Diversity as Identity”.


During these two days, the organizers will offer a conversation to the visitors: “each one through his discipline and the chosen materials, tells us his Guadeloupe. And, in an ongoing exchange with the other, participates in an argument on our vision of ourselves and our archipelago”, we read in the press kit of the event.

Among the participants in this exhibition entitled “Diversity as Identity”, we will find enthusiasts of bonsai, orchids and floral design, painters, sculptors, a photographer etc. : Ksli Orchids, Ikébana Ohara, Karukéra Bonsaï Club, Alchimy, Marcelle and Bernard Deraine, Marc Mauréaux, Widy Timbalier, Renée Hardial, Johanne de Azevedo, Éva Catalan, Dominique Descieux-Reynoso, Kazanac, Élizabeth Tharsis-Mugnier, Tony Boyer and Sandrine Sioubalak. About 60 works will be presented to the visitors.

The colours related to the theme that we will find in the works and scenography will not only be green, as in the two previous editions, but also white, brown, red and grey that “should remind us of our forests, our trees, our flowers, our sky, our buildings, the iron sheets and the asphalt in a space where the old and modern mix, explain the organizers.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on Friday, October 25 at 7:00 pm. The crowd will be received on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. It will be able to see and buy the works on display or to participate in several demonstrations: painting with Sandrine Sioubalak, sculpting with Johanne Azevedo, Ikébana with Guadeloupe Ikébana Club and bonsai with Karukéra Bonsaï Club.
