Founded in 2015, by Brigitte Gautschi, of Engelberg, Switzerland and Lincolnville, Maine, the Gautschi Center is designed as an art gallery and education center to inspire individual discovery. The mission of the Gautschi Center is to support people in their creative development by offering a variety of individual or group art classes and workshops that will help students learn to express themselves artistically. The United States based gallery is closely modeled after the Titlis Gallery, Brigitte’s first gallery and education center in Engleberg, Switzerland.
“I firmly believe that in each of us a creative potential lies just waiting to be discovered. If we welcome this aspect of our being and embark on the experience of artistic expression, this will be transmitted to our world in everyday life. We will find a new way to perceive, be free in dealing with other people and develop more self-esteem and self-confidence. As a basis for our creative growth we will create an atmosphere of trust and security. We can work forces that are greater than ourselves.”
