Association Vallaurienne d’Expansion Céramique
By 1948, Picasso was already living in Vallauris and regularly took part in an exhi- bition that brought together local artists and craftmen. Up until 1964, he designed the event’s poster, and gave the original artwork to the potters’ association, which was rena- med the A.V.E.C. in 1957.
Now head-quartered at the former barber- shop run by Eugenio Arias, Picasso’s barber and friend, the association holds regular themed exhibitions designed to showcase our ceramicists’ diversity and talent. You’ll also have the chance to see the linocuts that the Spanish master gifted the association, as well as photos and authentic hairdressing tools precious reminders of the times.
