The gallery’s artists

This year it is the Galerie Slavik’s great joy to be celebrating its 25th anniversary with two large exhibitions. The first of these, JEWELLERY CITY TALK, took place in May and was a great success, setting tongues wagging on the subject of jewellery all over Vienna and beyond. Now it is time for the second exhibition, WINTERREISE – WINTER JOURNEY, which will also be accompanied by a catalogue. In times of change, the Galerie Slavik stands for continuity.

WINTER JOURNEY, which opens on 18 November 2016, will showcase a multitude of exciting jewellery objects from the hands of our artists. The works display not only an impressive diversity of forms – from the strictly geometrical through the architectural to the enchantingly imaginative and witty – but also a rich range of materials including gold and silver, stainless steel and platinum, and organic materials such as wood and charcoal, not to mention plastics, enamel, ancient glass beads and special precious stones. These one-off pieces possess astounding artistic quality and a fascinating richness and fertility of ideas – heaven on earth for all lovers of the art of fine jewellery!

The following artists are participating:

Alexandra Brachtendorf, Paula Crespo, Susanne Elstner, Ramon Puig Cuyàs, Birgit Hagmann, Stephan Hampala, Nicole Heidemann, Mirjam Hiller, Tomas Hoke, Stephanie Jendis, Karin Johansson, Konrad Laimer, Gigi Mariani, Christine Matthias, Thanh-Truc Nguyen, Barbara Paganin, Letizia Plankensteiner, Bao Toan Puls, Wolfgang Rahs, Liliana Reyes, Isabell Schaupp, Claude Schmitz, Tereza Seabra, Yoko Shimizu, Jiri Sibor, Giovanni Sicuro, Martin Spreng, Claudia Steiner, Detlef Thomas, Silvia Walz.
