Subject: Sybille Kroos, Sergio Maina, Frank Sämmer, and Ulrike Zilly: art works, on show at Porto Ceresio, on the Italian shores of Lake Lugano, 26 August-4 September 2011
Running from 26 August to 4 September, 2011 in the exhibition space attached to the Library (Biblioteca Comunale) of Porto Ceresio, on the Italian shores of Lake Lugano, this show — organized by Galerie Tedden, Düsseldorf, Germany http://www.galerie-tedden.de — features the work of Sergio Maina, Frank Sämmer, Sybille Kroos, and Ulrike Zilly.
Sergio Maina was born in 1913, in Caslano, a small town on the Swiss shores of Lake Lugano just metres away from Lavena, on the Italian side of the Lake. For more on Sergio Maina, who died in 1933, see http://www.maina-sergio.ch/frameset.html
Sergio Maina painted many landscapes of the area around Caslano and Maliaso. He also executed a number of portraits. His works are included in the collections of, among others, the Museo Cantonale di Arte in Lugano, the Swiss Confederation in Berne, the Museo d’Arte in Mendrisio, and the Museo della Pesca in Caslano.
Frank Sämmer was born in Frankenberg/Eder, in 1947, and graduated from the State Academy of Art in Düsseldorf in 1978. Further examples of his work can be seen here: http://www.artnet.com/artists/frank-s%C3%A4mmer/biography-links/
