A meeting place for artists

The Festival International de Peinture de Magné, open to all, is one of the leading painters' festivals in France.

The festival is organised by Magné Animation, a cultural association supported by the Salons Nationaux: the Société des Artistes Français, the Salon Violet, specialist journals such as Univers des Arts and a host of loyal partners.

The process is simple

For two days, starting at 8am on Saturday morning, participating painters will be asked to create a work of art, on the motif, exclusively within the municipality, on a support stamped by the organisers. Only one signed and unframed work may be submitted per participant.

From 3pm on Sunday, the works will be exhibited in the gardens of the Town Hall and submitted to the jury, chaired by the guests of honour and made up of international and national artists. from Festival partners.

The figures speak for themselves

At the last edition of the Festival, 287 artists took pleasure in "sketching" different landscapes of our commune, coming from 46 departments as well as England, Australia and Reunion Island. 30 prizes were awarded. The public, always loyal and estimated at around 12,000 visitors, appreciates this weekend which puts Art within everyone's reach.

A wonderful adventure in the Marais Poitevin

The Magné Painting Festival is one of the leading painters' festivals in France. It's the fruit of a dynamic partnership between an exemplary organising team, with 60 people lending a hand over the course of a weekend, and the municipality, local authorities and partners whose support has been unwavering for 25 years. It has become one of the vectors that has enabled Magné to become a major player on the international scene.

Drawing on its experience, Magné Animation is determined to ensure that this wonderful adventure continues over the long term, in the heart of a Marais Poitevin full of hope and promise for the future.

At a time when many agree that the quality of the works produced is of an increasingly high standard and when some dream of awards, isn't it natural to agree that the winner is painting and that 1st prize goes to Art itself, which has found a home here?
