A small cool gallery in the old town shows examples from his many sketch books, Part 1 was Animals and Landscapes. Part 2 (this exhibition) is Clouds and People. Nägeli’s almost stick like graffitti appeared in the late 70’s overnight on Zürich walls – somewhat like Banksy – it was fun to spot another one! He had trained in Zürich and Paris and also sprayed in several German towns (a Toten Dance in Cologne, after a chemical spill in Schweizerhalle in Switzerland there was Totentanz der Fische). In 2020 he gave original drawings to building owners to waive the rent for commercial tenants during the Corona Lockdown. The same year he was awarded the Art Prize of the City of Zürich. Meet afterwards: For refreshments at Kantorei Restaurant, Neumarkt 2, 8001 Zurich about 14h45.

Enjoy tea outside the Hotel terrace with its lovely views across the Lake and meet with the Swiss Sculptor Freddy Röthlisberger. His wife will talk to us in English about how he began his sculptures in 1967 which have a strong Celtic feel about them and how he is inspired to sculpt the different figures – mostly in bronze.
