    • GORODKA, AN ATYPICAL "VILLAGE / GALLERY" IN THE DORDOGNE

      In the Dordogne, 4 kilometers from Sarlat, nestles a Dream Art Village built 40 years ago by Pierre Shasmoukine. It's a kind of open-air museum with 5 galleries, 3 Nature trails and more than 600 works, all from the imagination of this multi-card artist. Alternately Architect, painter poet and precursor… In the 80s, he put his life as an artist on hold to devote himself to what was not yet called "Renewable Energies". All these pioneering years are exhibited in photos in the Gallery "History of Gorodka".

      GORODKA, A SINGULAR ART GALLERY NEAR SARLAT

      A precursor misunderstood by local authorities, he resumed his life as an artist. Drawing, Painting, Writing… Tales for adults and for children, Texts "of humor and humor". His paintings are often illustrated with playful or dreamlike poems. Gorodka will exhibit many artists and in the 90s, Pierre Shasmoukine will open a popular Russian restaurant "Bistrot Za". He will then collect a Mirage 4, a Helicopter and various pieces that will become kinetic sculptures illuminated at nightfall. Don't miss the exciting visit

      which can last one or more hours... Some visitors even rent a small room to continue the visit the next day! Workshops, fun games for children and a drawing corner in the gallery for young artists make this unusual museum accessible to all.

      GORODKA: IMMERSION IN THE IMAGINATION OF A TALENTED ARTIST

      Before discovering the overflowing imagination of Pierre Shasmoukine, from 7 p.m. you can enjoy the picnic area with kitchenette for a bucolic moment. At 8 p.m. visit of the Galleries, free or guided (Tuesdays and Thursdays). As night falls, let yourself be carried away into another world with the works of the "Nature trails" The creator of Gorodka wanted a place to meet and share art, in a space open to everyone. Ajujour'd'hui, unusual rentals are rented with a large chalet (4/5 people), a studio (3 people) and old small rooms of artists. Treat yourself to a moment of total escape in the Planet Gorodka gîte or guest room.

    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.

    This place is atypical, we visited it at night and we must see it again during the day, because between these two periods there is a total change

    The last English language review from 2017 described a bizzare visit, that ended with meeting the artist. Shasmoukine has since died, and according to the literature (and website) the venue is used...

    We decided to visit after a long bout of shopping at the Sarlat market (or all-to-short whistlestop according to fiancée). Drove down a rough track, parked amongst various strange installations. We...
