About Swiss Artists UK
Swiss artists Uk was founded about 14 years ago with the purpose of maintaining and strengthening the community of Swiss artists living in the U.K.
We are immigrants, or descendants of immigrants, some having a strong connection with Switzerland by marriage or by having worked there. Some have a second home in the country but all of us know and love it with its rich history, culture and magnificent landscape.
To date the group has held exhibitions in Bath, London, Somerset and Geneva. The body of work is extremely varied, both In representational and abstract form. The artists use different techniques including painting and drawing, mosaic, lino print, wood print and sculpture.
At present we have thirteen members plus one associate who although not Swiss has strong connections with the country
We are honoured to retain Michael Buhler and Brian Davies, both founder members, on the membership list posthumously, as many of their paintings are still available through their partners to exhibit and sell.
The aims of SWISS ARTISTS UK are:
to hold and manage exhibitions in UK and abroad
to promote our work through various media where there is a Swiss connection
to enjoy a social network of artists who have a Swiss connection
to find and nurture funding partners to help the funding of exhibitions
