An Art-Filled Weekend in Verbier, Switzerland

By Delphine de Causans

August 24, 2016

For those spending some time off in Switzerland these last days of summer, we recommend a visit to the Swiss Alps. Besides hiking and biking in an awe-inspiring part of the world, out in the country there are some wonderful art exhibitions to see in the Vallais such as “Picasso, his late works, a tribute to Jacqueline” at the Pierre Gianadda Art Foudation located in Martigny. More than 110 art works are on view, including paintings, engravings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, and photographs. This foundation is well-known for its beautiful sculpture garden where one can admire works by Bernar Venet, Alexander Calder, Joan Miro, Jean Dubuffet, Auguste Rodin, Niki de Saint-Phalle, among others. The Picasso exhibition is open through November 20.

Galartis gallery, located in Sion, is currently exhibiting two different artists: Louis Leloup, famous glass-maker, and Laurence Jenkell, sculptor and painter. Leloup’s works “Le Chant du Cristal” is exhibited at the gallery in Sion while Jenckell’s sculptures “Candy Mania” are shown in Verbier. Both exhibitions run until September 24.

When in Verbier, don’t miss the Bel Air Art Gallery (also located in Cran-Montana) which represents artists such Liu Bolin, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Philippe Pasqua, and plenty more. Even a few artists from Bel Air are exhibited at the W Hotel, and a beautiful sculpture made by artist and industrial designer Arik Levy, placed right in the central area of the village.
