with host artist Miriam Schulman
In this episode, I talk to Charlotte Troisgros who is Head of America for Carre d’Artistes. Charlotte selects artists for the gallery with the artistic team in France, hires and trains the gallery team and ensures the brand image is respected and customers have a great experience.
Carre d’Artistes wants to democratize contemporary art by making original and one of a kind paintings accessible to all and have an unusual pricing system that allows people to buy an original painting starting at $150.
In this podcast, you will discover…

- (11:02) The most popular size they sell
- (11:51) How 4 times a year an artist will come to the gallery and paint live
- (13:36) How their artists are a mix of French, international and local artists

- (15:27) How they market the galleries
- (16:33) Why they invest in location
Charlotte has been working as head of America for Carré d’artistes for three years. There are two galleries in NYC, one gallery in Philadelphia, one in Sedona and two in Mexico (Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende). I am also in charge of opening more galleries. The work consists of selecting the artists for the gallery (with the artistic team in France), hiring and training the teams, making sure that the brand image is respected and ensuring a great Customer experience in each gallery. The overall concept is to democratize contemporary art by making original and one-of-a-kind paintings accessible to everyone.

You want to feel absolutely unstoppable in 2020? 🙋 Good.
Here’s what NOT to do:
❌ Start goals & projects that don't align with your life purpose
❌ Keep beating yourself up for past mistakes.
❌ Continue holding on to old emotional baggage (regret, anger, upset, resentments).
💜That's why we spend an entire week decluttering our hearts, minds and physical space during the Painting with Words Course 👉 schulmanart.com/ENROLL
If you want to MOVE FORWARD, you have to let the old baggage GO.
This process is so powerful and it's worked for me and the hundreds of art students who have already taken this class.
Not only do these exercises help you
✔️ EVOLVE into the next best version of yourself-- but you also
✔️ have FUN doing it at the same time
✔️ while learning new art skills. (check, check, check)
But MORE important than the art, is the TRANSFORMATION that this class has helped my students.
During Wednesday night's live training (you can watch the replay here) Carol had this to say about her experience with Painting with Words:
"I had some big health issues a couple years ago. My life was crazy, spiraling out of control, and I was constantly living in fear. I almost backed out of the course but after the first couple of lessons I knew it was going to save me! It gave me a way of working through my fears and attending to the next steps I needed to take. There is no doubt in my mind that you, Miriam, provided just what I needed. You have a place right up there with my doctors and therapists who helped me get through to the other side."~Carol
That's why I say this course is more than just an art class... it takes the self-development to a whole new level-- and if you've tried other forms of self-development and they haven't worked for you, perhaps this is just what your artistic soul is crying out for.
You deserve a FRESH start.
