Another creative component of Arnaud’s salon is evident on the interior walls, where a changing selection of modern art adds a sense of flair to the space. A recent example is the showing of the art of Claire Feuillet, a mixed media visual artist from Orleans, France. Claire majored in philosophy, and then moved into a career in photography and graphic arts, finally settling on painting as her ultimate form of expression. She has had many international exhibits, including shows in the Grand Palais in Paris and galleries and museums in Marseilles, Brussels, Berlin, Seoul, Dallas and New York City. After 10 years of teaching a the Orleans School of Fine Art, she will soon retire to continue her artistic work, with her favorite themes and symbolism concerning the rise and fall of man, in many forms of mixed media. This very idea to bring gallery level exhibit to a hair salon is unique all by itself.
“I love art of all types, and we sponsor many events here at the salon,” Arnaud says. “We change the art we display on our walls every seven weeks, so the salon is always interesting in its appearance, a living work of art.”
