Intro
Since 2012, the Galerie de la Perle Noire presents creators from the South and the Mediterranean, and each year hosts two exhibitions featuring a selection of paintings, sculptures, and unique artworks. Also the departure point for a circuit of the Artists’ Studios of the Perle Noire which accommodate over thirty artists in residence.
"BELOVED
It all begins deep in a cavern.
Some cave paintings...then come the drawings, and finally, after tens of thousands of years, the long awaited letter.
A free spirited character, boldface and bright eye.
And so Calligraphy was born.
Henceforth man would write everywhere, of everything.
To be needed?  More, to be-loved.
And should the letter fall in love with his adored companion, a jewel.
Revelation, declaration.
And so twenty jewellers from all the world join our creators of the 'Grand Sud' to celebrate these secret and sublime unions.
While paintings float in the space of the gallery, school desks hide precious gems.
A mysterious encounter, from ink to gold, artist's dream, lettered alchemist.
While excitement of words stir the emotion of giving, come, words of joy!"

For 2000 years, Agde has secretly cultivated her beauty. Feminine and extravagant, the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean reveals herself to those who know how to coax such exuberant gifts.
Within her dark facades of volcanic rock a golden vibrance glows.
A city where waters and cultures meet, a pearl of pearls nourished by a melting pot of influences, illuminated by a unique and spectacular beacon of Art Deco, the emblematic château Laurens.
