The collector’s dinner - 2020
For years now, the Galerie Pellat de Villedon is organizing elegant dinners illuminated with candlelight. For such special occasions, our most faithful clients are invited. Those traditional « collectors dinners » are a time of exchange and sharing between art amateurs. Our wish is to allow everyone to discover and experience « the French way of living », a behavior known and envied since centuries. This is why we set tables, prepare meals and set up sophisticated scenes within our exhibition spaces.
Once again, for this 2020 edition, the Galerie Pellat de Villedon opens its gates in evening dress. This year, the Galerie innovates with the presence of guests of honor such as the decorator Jacques Garcia, the expert Laurent-Adrien Asselinau and the expert Henri Collet.

The Autumn Feast - 2019
The Autumn Feast is an annual meeting for the art enthusiasts of Versailles. This event is organized by the Versailles’s antique district with an inauguration cocktail followed by three days of exhibition. The Bailliage’s street and the Geole’s district are flowery to give a warm welcome to the guests. Every year, a theme is chosen. In 2019 the theme was « the exceptional object ».
The Galerie Pellat de Villedon, which attends the Feast every year, chose to present a tapestry ordered by Louis XIV to the Manufacture des Gobelins for Fontainebleau. The art work is outstanding by its size, its origin, its preservation, its destination and its quality. In order to highlight it, the Galerie chose to welcome its guests in two exhibition areas down the Bailliage street, enlightened by candles with a lot of furniture and works of art.

Traditionally, this event brings together art and antique dealers inside the luxurious Grand Palais. The 2019 edition takes place from the 13th to the 17th of September.
This edition marks the fourth attendance of the Galerie Pellat de Villedon. For such a special event, our exhibition displayed exceptional and rare pieces : a tapestry made by the Manufacture des Gobelins for Louis XIV, a chest of drawers stamped by Charles Topino but also a pot-pourri from the Manufacture of Saint-Cloud. To amaze you, we created an elegant garden in the middle of Paris.
