It is to lend a helping hand and, above all, to make it a little more visible local talent that brokerage LFCinstalled in in the city center from Mantes-la-Jolie since September 2020exposed every month achievements and artist different.

As we know, it is a problem for many amateur artists to exhibit their works.

This project is the result of our meeting with Sophie Rigaud, who runs “Label Mantes. It gives us contact with the artists and on our end we give them visibility by giving them a five meter wide wall.

Openings are held every month

Registered trademark created last year “Label Mantis” develops initiatives to support local talent.

“Within a few months, I’ve already enabled four artists to exhibit at LFC,” enthuses Sophie Rigaud, the label’s founder.

Since last spring, the premises of the agency located in the heart of the city have been replaced by a jeweler, a graphic artist or even an origami specialist.

It brings some life to the street, we want Mantes-la-Jolie to move. We try to do things well. For example, we set up a tripod on the street to announce exhibitions, we hold openings every month (note the last one was held on Tuesday, September 13). We manage to get about thirty people together, some of whom are future customers. It gives another perspective on the agency and is beneficial for everyone.

“Making Place Accessible”

Either way, both partners are happy to inject some life into their agency.

“It’s a small family here, we’re breaking down barriers by making the place accessible. Why not give the idea to other merchants in the city center,” they conclude.
