March 3 – May 6, 2016

Galerie Gugging will be showing the differing works of 2 new artists Leopold Strobl and Leoš Wertheimer. Strobl draws on top of newspaper clippings, preferring a small format, and has been devoted to art for over 35 years, working in the Guggen Open Studio for 12 years. Wertheimer uses large packaging paper for his large format works. He began drawing the detailed illustrations of locomotives in 1997. Since then he has drawn more than 600 locomotives and every single one exists. “Locomotives Beneath a Green Sky“ will highlight both the similarities and differences in their drawings.
