Throughout the year Paul Demaria’s paintings are displayed in his own personal gallery, The Open Lake & Landscape Studio d’Arte which is situated in the charming and characteristic medieval town of Varenna on beautiful Lake Como. Demaria commits himself to the "plein-air" style of painting, much used by the early impressionist painters where subjects are always painted "on the spot" in their natural settings.

In Griante, Martino Luculli, has dedicated the last 30 years to painting scenes of Lake Como in a unique naïve art style. Martino was a great friend of the internationally renown painter Enrico Vannuccini who also lived and worked in Griante. Martino’s art, usually already framed, can be purchased directly from him at the gallery for reasonable prices. You are likely to find a scene from the Lake that you may remember fondly. He even sells small paintings for anywhere from 5 to 20 Euro’s that you can easily transport back home. You can visit Martino’s Art Gallery inside Bar Vecchia Torre in Griante (many people know this local like Martino’s Bar, because Martino is the owner and the creator).

View an art exhibition of Lake Como paintings by Italian-American artist Jerry Fresia. Here you will see one of the best examples of contemporary Impressionist paintings created en plein air. The art gallery in Bellagio also organizes week-long painting holidays for small groups.
