Norwalk’s Galerie Sono has announced plans to open Sono Paris, a gallery in the heart of Paris.
“The gallery will be located at 91 Rue Saint-Honoré, one of the most prestigious luxury retail locations in the city, just a block away from the Louvre,” the gallery posted on its Facebook page, adding, “Details soon!”
Galerie Sono was founded in 1999 and is based within a 6,000-square-foot space at 123 Washington St. in Norwalk’s SoNo district. In a March 2018 interview with the Fairfield County Business Journal, Galerie Sono’s president Claude Villani described his exhibitions as being regionally-exclusive offerings catering to a deep-pocketed buying audience.
“To be in this gallery requires being in similar galleries across the country and world, and in museums,” he said. “We don’t do much with local artists. Not that we don’t support local artists, but we are collector-driven and they want artists who are investment-ready.”
