Galerie Sonia Zannettacci on the To-Do List

Another gallery that I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing is the Galerie Sonia Zannettacci at 16, rue des Granges.  I realized after our trip in Switzerland that you simply can’t do everything the first time around. So, during a future trip, I certainly hope to be able to visit this lovely gallery that’s been open since December of 1980.… (more…)

The Galerie Rosa Turetsky

We didn’t get to the Galerie Rosa Turetsky while we were in Geneva last time – but I have it on my list for our next visit!  The Galerie began in the early eighties and is committed to helping young artists to confront matter, concept and use of space. The space where the Galerie is today was opened in November… (more…)

A Feast for the Eyes…TACTILe Gallery

While we were in Geneva, we obviously couldn’t spend every second of the day looking at ancient art and antiques.  One place that was a must-enjoyed change of pace with the TACTILe Gallery.  They’ve been open in Geneva since 1998 and they specialize in contemporary jewelry from around Europe. Now, I’m not a jewelry hog and I don’t spend much… (more…)

Antique Maps in Geneva

One thing that I became smitten with while we were in Geneva is old maps.  I’ve never been particularly into maps, but there was an amazing little shop in Geneva called the Village Antiques.  While we were there, I came across antique maps dating as far back as the 16th century. One of the maps that they had, for instance,… (more…)

Enjoying Flemish Paintings

I don’t have much time today, but wanted to recount a lovely experience we had at the De Jonckheere Gallery.  I had visited their gallery in Paris and was excited to see the new one they just opened in Geneva.  They’re located at 7 rue de l’Hôtel de Ville and specializes in the study and sale of 15th, 16th and… (more…)

A Detour to Gallerie Interart

While we were eating breakfast in our hotel one morning in Geneva, we struck up a conversation with the guests at the next table.  They were raving about their visit to the Gallerie Interart in the Old Town. While it wasn’t on my original agenda, we decided to check out this Gallery after hearing such great things. And we definitely… (more…)

Going Back in Time with Phoenix Ancient Art

In sharp contrast to our quite modern experience in the Gallery Patrick Gutknecht was our venture to the Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. Gallery owned by brothers Hicham Aboutaam and Ali Aboutaam.  I had once visited the Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. location in New York, and I was very much looking forward to seeing what their Geneva locale held. While small… (more…)

The Gallery Grand Rue and the Gallery Patrick Gutknecht

One of the most fascinating days that we had incorporated the Gallery Grand Rue and the Gallery Patrick Gutknecht.  The Gallery Grand Rue is a gallery that specializes in the work of art on paper, with emphasis on the 18th and 19th centuries.  They are open at quite tricky hours, so it’s very important to check ahead before setting out. … (more…)

Gagosian Gallery – Featuring Richard Serra

One morning in Geneva, we gave ourselves plenty of time to enjoy the Gagosian Gallery, one of the more well known locations on the European art market row.  I had been to the Beverly Hills and Madison Avenue locations, so I was looking forward to seeing what the Geneva Gallery had in store. On display in their stunning studio were… (more…)

The Gallery Jacques de la Beraudiere

The first gallery that we stumbled upon in our Geneva exploration was the Gallery Jacques de la Beraudiere.  This location specializes in the Masters of the 19th and 20th century.  We had actually heard of his gallery in Paris that he opened with his partner Philippe Cazeau, and we were looking forward to seeing both the new Geneva space and… (more…)
