Abode2 Property, Art & Design Winter Reception At Galeries Bartoux – London


The stunning Galeries Bartoux Art Gallery in the heart of London’s Mayfair, played host to Abode2’s Property, Art and Design, Champagne Reception on Thursday, December 2nd.


Abode2, the No1 Google Ranking luxury property magazine, partnered with award-winning developer Reward Properties and leading international law firm MATLAW for an exclusive, invite only, winter networking event.

Galeries Bartoux is an international group with 18 galleries located in France, Monaco, London, New York and Miami representing a whole new generation of artists.

The first galleries were inaugurated in cities whose history is associated with painting: Honfleur in 1993, Saint-Paul de-Vence in 1995. The opening of galleries in Megève and Courchevel followed. The entry into the heart of the international art market was first established in Paris in 2003, New York in 2007, London in 2015, Monaco in 2018 and Miami in 2020.

The Bartoux family’s artistic approach is to interact with the public by making them aware of art while opening a window on new and exciting cultural values. The galleries are open spaces for collectors, places of exchange and meeting between passionate people from different horizons.

Galeries Bartoux offers both great masters, confirmed artists and emerging artists. It’s this alchemy that creates the DNA of the Galeries Bartoux Group, a finger-on-the-pulse attitude to the world of art and design that makes the gallery the perfect venue for Abode2’s final event of the season.
