Monica De Cardenas Galleria

The reason I was in Switzerland was for my husband Tomory's art opening at the Monica De Cardenas Gallery in Zuoz.

The gallery itself is amazingly beautiful: it is an Engadin (Engadinian?) farmhouse from the 15th century, formerly known as the Chesa Albertini, which was renovated and modified by the architect Hans-Jörg Ruch. Not only did we have the pleasure of experiencing Tomory's paintings in the space- we also stayed at the gallery itself in one of three cabin-like rooms located on the 2nd floor of the gallery.

I'm still very jet-lagged so I am having a difficult time describing the comfortable, elegant, rustic beauty of this space. So I'll just let these images & the links speak for me...
