A recent addition to Le Touquet, this art and design gallery offers an eclectic mix of contemporary painting, sculpture, plus furniture and objets d’art. Opened in 2016 by Lionel Fibleuil, the space is located in the beautiful Hermitage building, alongside a cluster of other exhibition spaces, across from the tourism office.

The first Nicole Gogat gallery opened near Montpellier in 2002, with a focus on the ‘human adventure with artists and collectors’. In June 2013, a second one opened in Le Touquet, in the Hermitage building, and this has now become the flagship location.

Galerie Milani

Galerie Milani specializes in the work of French painter and sculptor Alain Godon, an artist with close ties to Le Touquet who, among other works, created the 10-meter (39-foot) sand sculpture of the Eiffel Tower, inaugurated in March 2017, which has become a new landmark on the beach promenade.

Kassape Sanson

A beautiful seaside spot laden with history, Le Crotoy has attracted artists for centuries. Names like Colette, Sisley and Seurat have graced its scenic shores. To this day the place is a magnet for artists and there’s an active informal ‘colony’ of artists that work regularly in the town and open their studios for visitors, just over 40 minutes by car from Le Touquet. Kassape Sanson is a self-taught local artist who paints expansive and haunting seascapes of the Baie de Somme, taking inspiration from her native land and the people who live and work there.

Galerie de Rosana

Rosana de Paula Cessac is a Brazilian-born artist who thrives in her adopted home of Le Crotoy, giving her own colourful naïf interpretation to the local landscape.
