An exhibition dedicated to the Arches paper mill

From 3 September to 13 October 2021, the  public library in the small town of Arches, in partnership with ARCHES®, is organising an exhibition dedicated to the Arches paper mill and its long and fascinating history.

This exhibition is a golden opportunity for local inhabitants and visitors passing through to learn a bit more about this iconic site and its production of paper known the world over for its quality.

The exhibition includes both old and contemporary artworks on ARCHES® paper: watercolours, lithographs, engravings, prints, posters. There will also be archive documents, old sample books, books, special tools used by master papermakers, all of which have been borrowed from the ARCHES® paper mill’s private archives specially for the occasion.


For those who will not be able to come to the Vosges in person this autumn, here’s a small taster of the exhibition:
