“Your work has been accepted,” were the only words passing through my (tired) brain, the day I discovered the jurors in the Art International Zurich had approved my application to participate in the 16th international art fair they are having this year. I was over the moon!
Every Autumn, galleries and independent artists from all over the world, like migrating birds, make their way to one of the most important and beautiful cities in Switzerland: Zurich. The Congress Hall will house a wide range of contemporary artworks which have been carefully selected by its very own committee. Exhibiting my work along work of other talented individuals in the heart of the historic centre of Zurich has me feeling very accomplished!
What contents me the most about this event is that I will be representing, through my paintings, the beautiful place I call home: Ticino. Without its stunning mountains, historical cities, history, and forests, I think I wouldn’t create the art I create!
The Art International Zurich is open to everyone with a passion for culture and the Arts. “Reflections of Ticino,” and “Ticino through my window,” will both be displaying on the main floor of the hall, stand K27.
Some of the work in display are:
A series of reflections of the city of castles: Bellinzona.
Val Verzasca’s favorite spot, ponte dei salti. A reflection of it, on the river’s rapids.
The very famous painting of the reflection of San Pietro and the promenade of Ascona.
Morcote’s promenade. Image selected for the Art International Zurich catalogue.
An interpretation of a little port, in Gandria, leading to lake Lugano at night.
A little rustico (house made out of Ticinese stones) in Bosco Gurin in the winter time.
The typical local fruit in the area of Ticino: Castagne.
The place I call home, and its beautiful houses looked from above.
If you are in the area and want to say hello, please visit ART INTERNATIONAL ZURICH for more information. I hope to see you there!!!
