  • Thursday is a great day in Aix because it is a market day. Too bad we woke up late and only caught the rush of packing up. We took a brief look around and headed to a sandwich place and grabbed some great falafel.

    After watching an entire plaza transform from a fish and food market into a perfectly clean and picturesque restaurant patio complete with tables, umbrellas and chairs, we headed back to the studio at the Marchutz School, where we met up with some students gathering work that they wanted to take home. We helped clean the place up and removed the traces of the ridiculous party that had been occur the night before.

    As the studio was cleaned up, we got glimpses of original works from the painter Leo Marchutz that were being put up for a lecture seminar that will happen tomorrow. For someone who has had many opportunities to see original works by many artists (from the simple, quick, and encyclopedic visits to the Prado, Louvre, etc), it has been quite rare of me to see work that spoke to me.

    We quickly finished up and headed into town via our place and then reconvened at Mary's apartment. The event was a small aperitif, or a night of art and appetizers. We met with the Marchutz students, including Nick and O'Neill, and enjoyed the many hours devours. After some wine, we began to discuss Mary's work and a few stories from the semester of the marchutz school over 2 years ago (the year Mary, Charley, O'Neill, and Nick all studied together).

    We ended the night around midnight and said goodbye after a night of great food, wine and conversations.

    Aix is defiantly a great place, in no small part to the great people here. It reminds me how lucky I am to be included into this group as a friend of a friend. I've had the fortune to be thrown into a paradise of the French Riviera that even hollywood couldn't dream up.
