Former Resident Artists

Open Spaces is an art residency in the Alpine village of Feutersoey, in the Bernese Oberland, which is the Alpine Region of Canton Bern in the heart of Switzerland.

The residency program brings art in an engaged form to the picturesque Saanenland region surrounding Feutersoey and most importantly directly into the community.


Situated in the village centre in a former school building, the residency program has a high local profile and provides a high-visibility cultural centre-point for the village and for the region.

The program invites 2 artists at a time from around the world to work for a period of three months, for a total of 8 artist residencies per year.

Gstaad, an internationally known farming and resort town 10 minutes away by car, is a fully serviced village with galleries. Soon to be built “Les Arts Gstaad” will be the first art museum in the region.


Open Spaces is an invitation to local and visiting artists to produce work and stimulate the sense of community of Feuterseoy and the Saanenland region.
