Information

ART CENTER LOCATED IN LENS, 5KM FROM CRANS-MONTANA

Since end of 2018, the art centre of Lens has been hosting Fondation Opale. This building has planted its roots on the shores of Lake Louché, in the heart of a masterful alpine circus.

Permanent and temporary exhibitions

Resident in Crans-Montana, Bérengère Primat, a collector specialising in Aboriginal art, wanted to give this art a European influence. Through exhibitions, but also workshops, meetings and publications, Fondation Opale intends to establish a permanent dialogue between Aboriginal art and contemporary art.

Restaurant L'Opale offers regional cuisine, highlighting local and seasonal produce in a decor of Aboriginal inspiration.
