OTTAWA, July 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Atout France in Canada (France Tourism Development Agency) and the French Embassy in Canada are pleased to present Galerie F, a traveling exhibit that will shine the spotlight on French territories through several dozen iconic brands and products representative of French quality. Galerie F will be held simultaneously in Canada and France throughout the summer of 2014. The French Embassy in Ottawa will be the next host of this original exhibit, starting in Ottawa July 10th.

For beyond the traditional images that link the country to Human Rights and great intellectuals, France also offers the world countless commercial successes. In this outstanding collection, you will find 50 iconic products, still in use today, fondly recounted by well-known personalities from the world of entertainment, art and sports. The French Embassy in Ottawa invites you for this unique voyage to the heart of French excellence and, as Montesquieu wrote, let yourself be seduced by France's amazing ability to "do frivolous things seriously, and serious things cheerfully."

The Galerie F will be held in French Embassy in Ottawa for three short days:
July 10, from 2 pm to 7 pm
July 16, from 2 pm to 6 pm
July 17, from 12 pm to 4 pm.
