Welcome to Galerie Slavik
Our message in these challenging times
Dear friends of the Slavik Gallery,
for 30 years we have passionately promoted Contemporary Jewellery Art worldwide. Each unique and handmade piece is connected to a very special and exceptional artistic personality.
We are all experiencing disruptions to our normal way of life. In this situation, we want to encourage you to enjoy art now more than ever.
Our gallery is located in Himmelpfortgasse in Vienna’s historic city centre, no distance from the winter palace of the art-lover Prince Eugene of Savoy.
Read more about life in our gallery in the interview with Renate Slavik and Jutta Pietsch on Art Jewelry Forum. In 2020 it will continue to be our foremost priority to promote international art-jewellery of the highest quality and to present our own personal selection to!

Ed and Tomas Hoke – a frame of glass and steel
30 years ago the interior design of the Slavik Gallery was created by Edmund and Tomas Hoke. This architectonic masterpiece has brought us clients from all over the world. Its timeless design is really made for presenting the extraordinary pieces of art jewellery made by our artists.
With a lot of joy we present you a clip about the gallery from the documentary of the Austrian Television ORF “Denkende Hände. Die Kunst der Familie Hoke _ “Thinking hands. The arts of the Hoke family.”
Annamaria Zanella`s poetry
Her fascinating jewellery objects made in idiosyncratic materials to which she gives a special finish with elements in gold are really exciting. In her diverse and highly imaginative creative world there is also room for glass, enamel and plastics, all radiant with powerful, finely harmonized colours. Every one of her miniature sculptures is an expression of the artist’s breathtaking inner power and bubbling energy. All richly poetic, many also have a special story to tell, such as the “cantatori ” brooch, where one can hear the joyful voices of people who overcame the first lock down by singing to one another from their balconies.
