Artist in Residence

During four weeks, from 16 July to 13 August 2016, Swiss Abroad artist Lucienne Fontannaz-Howard was based in the Galerie am Leewasser and worked artistically. She was selected over her competitors for the “Artist in Residence” project co-organised by the art gallery Galerie am Leewasser, the Foundation for the Area for the Swiss Abroad, and the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad. The project intends to offer Swiss artists who live outside of Switzerland to contribute their international viewpoint and to get inspiration by the Swiss landscape.

 

In the four weeks, visitors were able to gain insight in the artist’s work and could have a look over her shoulder while she works in the attic. The landscapist Lucienne Fontannaz-Howard originates from Bex in the Canton of Vaud and lives in Australia. She completes her stay with an exhibition of her paintings created her residency, a selection of which may be seen below.
