The Galleria SACCHETTI shows for the first time in Switzerland paintings by the Spanish artist Alejandra Atarés. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, widened her knowledge in Bristol and deepened her studies in Art and Design at the Massachusetts College. She began exhibiting her paintings in 2009 and participated in several group shows and four solo shows in Barcelona. Atarés has participated in the art fairs Art Karlsruhe and Art Madrid.
During the finissage, the musician Jan Laurenz will perform Spanish guitar music.
The Galleria SACCHETTI shows new sculptures by the Swiss artist Daniel Eggli. He studied at the Hochschule der Künste (ZHdK) in Zurich before beginning his career as a freelance artist in 2001.
„My sculptural works are committed to figuration, whereby individual figures, as well as larger ensembles of figures, are worked out of solid wood with a chainsaw. Stylistically, these works are close to abstract naturalism. In terms of content, they are about the representation of characters which are often ironically overdrawn. The work is always based on the observation of people. The roughness and brittleness of the material, as well as its resistance, are always a challenge when it comes to the depiction of human or animal figures.”
During the vernissage, Daniel Eggli will work life in the courtyard of the Galleria and if desired create a personalized portrait sculpture of you.
The Galleria SACCHETTI presents new works by Annelies Štrba who is an internationally renowned Swiss artist.

The pictures and videos of Annelies Štrba are shown in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and
museums. They are represented in international collections.
Together with friends, customers and art lovers, we would like to toast the year 2018, which was varied and exciting for us.
The Galleria SACCHETTI will be showing selected works from this year’s exhibitions from 21 November until 29 December.
During the aperitif, the following artists will be present: Felicita Bianchi Duyne, Petra Gabriele Dannehl, Alice Trepp, Gregorio Esposito and Stephan Spicher.
The paintings by Felicita Bianchi Duyne, whose pictorial language tends towards abstraction, unfold their poetic effect due to their sensitive handling of various natural materials such as natural pigments, earth, sand or lime. Bianchi Duyne lives and works in Ponte Capriasca/Ticino.
Stephan Spicher’s drawings and paintings, which combine the linear with colour surfaces, revolve around the question of what forces stand behind all living things, what energies effect the permanent change of all that exists. Spicher lives and works in Basel and Maggia/Ticino.
Come and visit the Galleria Berno SACCHETTI AG at the WOPART in Lugano. The gallery shows works by Gregorio Esposito (CH/I), Rodja ro* Galli, (CH), Mela Kaltenegger (A), Marlis Spielmann (CH) and Michael Schuster (DE).

Marlis Spielmann’s working method is characterized by an experimental and unbiased handling of materials and techniques. With needle and thread, scissors and paper, brush and palette, she creates works full of humor and depth. In her paper cuts, embroideries, paintings and objects the human figure is emphasized. Events in the surrounding environment, her own observations and experiences as well as images originating from the artist’s fantasy flow into one another.
Her works have been shown nationally and internationally at solo and group shows, lastly in spring 2018 within the Sino-Swiss-Art Exchange Exhibition at Bobao Art Museum in Beijing and at Wenlin Art Museum in Kunming.
With ARTXFOURthe Galleria SACCHETTI presents an exhibition platform for four emerging artists from the northern part of Switzerland for the first time in the Canton of Ticino. Myriam Mizzo Gämperli, Rodja RO* Galli, Nadia Hunziker and Alain LAIN Schibli engage the interfaces between graphic design, illustration, urban art, interior design, product design and fine art with curiosity, objectivity and insight. Their works, which are not tied to a client, have as their central point of reference the everyday (urban) culture in its multifaceted form. According to the formal principle of collage, the artists interweave elements in a new way and modify them using different media, and materials, and analog and digital techniques. The appropriation and rearrangement of already existing components leads to the creation of surprising, fresh pictorial worlds that break with visitors’ usual viewing habits.
The Galleria SACCHETTI presents paintings and object by the Swiss Alfons Bürgler. The artist calls his style of painting Körperschriften. His works depict parallelly arranged and stacked abstract human figures in various poses. Sometimes flat, sometimes graphically set on the pictorial medium, Bürgler’s human figures dance, gesticulate, embrace, bounce or shake hands. In certain works more than one thousand figures bustle.
The human being is also the focus of Bürgler’s Baumfiguren. The figures can be interpreted as three-dimensional executions of his Körperschriften. Bürgler finds his material at the edge of woodlands. The artist takes bush and tree branches, rotates them 180 degrees and then forms figures with humanlike features with a saw and pruning shears. For his figures – small-scaled ones exist also as sculptural work in bronze – the artist founded the Baumfiguren gallery in 2007: a private museum open to the public in Steinen, Canton of Schwyz.
The Galleria SACCHETTI presents new sculptures in bronze by the Dutch artist Hanneke Beaumont. “Who are we? What are we? Where are we going?”. Man’s perennial questions are echoed in Beaumont’s work. Many of her sculptures appear neither male nor female, neither young nor old. They do not appear to be portraits of particular individuals, nor are they modeled after idealized human forms. Fragile but strong, motionless but ready to move, these figures seem to be in a weightless spatial equilibrium – their human character tied to a string of thought.
