The international church on Lake Como

Light and Shadows of Lake Como - Art Project 2023

An artists invitation visit

hosted by the Church of the Ascension, Cadenabbia, Lake Como, Italy

working with the Royal Academy and Lake Como Landscape Museum

23rd to 27th April 2023

This might sound like a painting holiday but instead it is part of of our fundraising efforts to restore the church.  Recognising how the landscape and its history have drawn artists through the ages, internationally recognised artists have been invited for a visit in April 2023.  

Working in collaboration with the UK’s Royal Academy and the Lake Como Landscape Museum, members of the church community will introduce the the artists to different aspects of the lake - its landscape, life, history and music.  The artists will then draw on their reflections to create pieces of art which will be exhibited at a selling exhibition later in the year at the Gurr John Gallery, London.  It is anticipated that prior to this in late August-September there may be an exhibition of at least some of the works at the Lake Como Landscape Museum in Tremezzo.
