OUR WORLD - Images in Texts Exposition

All important expositions in Waterloo, are done in the old stables of the castle which once stood in this park and which has been demolished in the 70th ! The stables were converted into an Exposition hall.

A friend of mine Marie de Salle exposed her drawings and books there. That's why together with a friend we visited the exposition and also to say hello to her.

The flower crown has fallen from the head of this statue which stands at the entrance, because of all the rain.

This exposition named "En image dans le texte" (Images in a text) showed drawings in children books ! You could see the drawings or paintings and also the books. It was a very interesting exposition and a very special one too !

The floor was covered with paper

These are photos of children, they look so real on my photos !

To read and show the books the kids could sit here and listen

On the paper which covered the floor there were already a lot of designs which the children had done, I liked the "don't walk on it" !

One had even drawn a naked woman with only one breast which looked like a smiley ! Very creative !

Marie's little daughter showed me her drawing, which represents her mum !

Marie with her drawings and books

here more in details

As she also is a violinist, she had created this book of a little boy who learns to play the violin

This classroom which illustrates another book, made me think of our painting class !

A summer picnic

and this little orchestra she had created together with kids in plasticine

I loved this cat painting, which another artist had painted.

It was a real special exposition and I had never been in one, where I could draw on the floor !

Your friend is very talented. I liked the one of the classroom. Now, if she were to make one with kitties...

I love the paper on the floor idea. We used to do that a lot when I worked in school... even the children who didn't like drawing would always come a join in when we did.

What a super exposition. Your friend's drawings and books are interesting. I love children's book illustrations. Fun for kids to draw on the floor.

Very interesting!
I especially like the group seating for the children - so colorful and comfortable looking.
If you had not told me the drawing was a naked woman, I would have thought she was wearing exercise clothes with a smiley on the chest! I guess I'm a bit old-fashioned.
Have a wonderful day!

I just really love this exhibit and wish I'd been there. I wanted to put the crown back on that statue. (And I'm sorry 'bout all your rain.)
