    • GORODKA, A NUG TO DISCOVER NEAR SARLAT

      In the Dordogne, a few kilometers from Sarlat-La-Canéda, nestles an extraordinary art village, created 40 years ago by Pierre Shasmoukine. After a very turbulent life as an artist in Paris... He settled in 1970, at the age of 27, on a plot of wood given by his grandmother and became in turn, Architect, painter, poet, sculptor and precursor: Putting between aside from his vocation as an artist, in the 1970s he created the first NGO - on renewable energies - with 12 employees. He will then write the Catalog of Resources "Energy / Habitat" and with his self-taught experience, will publish "Construire en bois". All these pioneering years are exhibited in photos on site - but misunderstood by local politicians, he will cease this part of his activity and return to his life as an artist... He will write stories for adults and children, texts "of humor and mood"… Some of his paintings are illustrated by playful or dreamlike poems… For 15 years he will exhibit more than 300 artists. This atypical artist wore all the caps and invented Gorodka in his image. Don't miss this fascinating visit, which can last from 10 minutes to several hours... Some visitors even rent a small room to continue the visit the next day!

    A magnificent site where artists can exhibit their works in the open air, the artists who exhibit have incredible talent, it is worth the detour and a special thought to Pierre Shasmoukine who made this place a true masterpiece and his sister and its staff are very warm and caring towards customers! You will not be disappointed !

    Get off the beaten track, go and discover this place which has a true soul: an atypical place which will not leave you indifferent, created entirely by an extraordinary man, artist, avant-garde in many fields, self-taught. The visit is led by his sister who reveals many anecdotes. My two teenagers were impressed by this museum like no other. My only regret is not having discovered this place earlier during Pierre Shasmoukine's lifetime.

    Living in the Dordogne I can promise you that if you don't visit Gorodka then you don't know the Dordogne!!! Pierre Shasmoukine was able, with great courage and conviction, to transform a wood into...
