Revelations at Grand Palais

When I went to REVELATIONS at Grand Palais previously it was a mostly all-French affair with just Norway as guest.
The latest edition last weekend of 
The 4th arts and craft biennale was
 a delight
Since 33 more guest countries were added.
The mix of craft artists working in so many mediums was outstanding.
Usually I'm not so thrilled by crafts but the grand scale, strong colors, variety of textures, materials and shapes made for an exciting experience.
At Revelations you had a chance to speak with the creators about their medium. Quite a few were honing their craft on site.
Revelations will be back in 2021 for another four days at Grand Palais. Its well worth planning ahead.  
All the brilliant colors and textures inspired me to do a new set of subscription bonus watercolors. Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast. If you enjoyed this please share with a friendGet monthly Paris letters, maps and watercolors in your mailbox at ETSYxxx💋Carolg and Bear 🐻 in Paris
