Visiting the LUMAS gallery in Zurich

After talking about how much I loved LUMAS’ work earlier this month, I decided to pay a visit to their gallery next time I was back in Zurich.

LUMAS have galleries across Europe, all of which look exactly the same with a sort of lounge concept. However, their gallery in Zurich is by far the most successful as approximately 200 people visit at peak times such as a Saturday afternoon. They told me that, by the way. I am not just being biased about Zurich this time!

It is not exactly hard to see why the LUMAS gallery in Zurich is as popular as it is; their approach that art is for everyone means there is something for each visitor no matter what your interests are. Also, because they change exhibitions every two weeks and host new events every two months, there are plenty of reasons to head back regularly. I know if I still lived in Zurich all the time I would drop in every month at least.

Visiting LUMAS at this time of year was a great idea. Among the 500 limited art works at the store I found a lot of Christmas presents for friends and family. The architecture and fashion photographs were especially popular. I noticed a lot of people browsing the photos of Cuba and South America – presumably to introduce a bit of sun and warmth into their home at this chilly time of year!

There were three floors to browse at the LUMAS gallery in Zurich. My particular favourite was the ground floor where every guest first arrives. This is where they keep the most popular artwork in the gallery. However, I also loved browsing the basement with its collection of works by legendary artists as well as the first floor’s fashion photography.

Thank you so much for your lesson in art! It is so refreshing to see LUMAS has many galleries. We do not see a lot of that in the U.S. I hope you provide us with more of your insight. You write so well and have a wonderful way of getting the reader interested in your subject matter. Until now, I was not much of an art fan. You have opened a new world for me.
