Galerie porcheBased in the Grenoble area since 1966, the Vent des Cîmes Gallery is now an established cultural name in the Rhône-Alps area. With 48 years of experience, the gallery has gained a solid reputation in the contemporary arts sector both here and further afield.

Founded by Mrs Vachez, the gallery was first set up above the ski resort of l’Alpe d’Huez (hence the name). Shortly afterwards she decided to transfer the gallery to Grenoble, the capital city of the Alps, and took up residence on the riverfront of the Isère.

In 1995 an economic opportunity encouraged the former proprietors to move closer to the city centre. Now the Vent des Cimes Gallery is situated in the well-appointed commercial premises at 25, avenue Alsace Lorraine.

The works of art are currently exhibited on two floors. The ground floor is mainly used for temporary exhibitions while the first floor is reserved for works by different artists and works from previous exhibitions.

The Gallery Vent des Cimes: an opportunity

In the year 2000 Françoise and Claude BOBIN decided to embark on an exciting adventure by taking over the gallery. Possessing both a combination of solid commercial experience and discerning knowledge of the artistic world, the directors were able to further develop the gallery and its reputation.
A few years later, their daughter Sarah, passionate about the family business, decided to pursue artistic studies. After obtaining a Master’s degree in Art history, she joined the gallery full time and took over the business in January 2014.

How the gallery works

Many exhibitions are organised at the gallery at regular intervals. Invitations to new exhibitions are sent to our clientele between 7 and 8 times a year. Our role is both to seek out and present new artists with promising talent and organise exhibitions promoting more established creators.

Our collaboration with artists is always founded on a relationship of confidence and will continue to do so. Today the gallery is proud to present painters and sculptors with national and international renown.
