ARTCHEVAL is an artistic residency project made possible through the generous support of numerous partners in the Saumur region. The chosen artists are invited to explore all aspects of Saumur’s horse-related life, including stables, specialized shops, equestrian institutions, and much more. They are encouraged to immerse themselves in the unique atmosphere that Saumur offers, aiming to enrich their creativity and nourish their artistic process.

This artistic initiative, started up by the Saumur Equestrian Committee, thrives thanks to strong partnerships such as the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud and Maison Bouvet Ladubay. Without their invaluable support, the ARTCHEVAL project could not exist. This year marks the 31st edition of this exceptional event, with the 4th edition as a residency within the Contemporary Art Center.
