2016 is a special year for the Slavik Gallery: the showcase for “Contemporary International Jewellery Art” is now 25 years old! We are marking this jubilee with two large-scale exhibitions paying due tribute to our artists. For each exhibition a catalogue will be published to celebrate the anniversary year and document it for posterity. In times marked by change and upheaval, the Slavik Gallery stands for continuity.

For our exhibition “TALKING JEWELLERY IN THE CITY”, which opens on 6 May, our artists have brought forth truly fantastic creations powered by their enormous inventiveness and the many years of our collaboration. We are over the moon about the artistic quality and wealth of ideas in this stunning array of one-off works of jewellery art. The following artists are taking part:

Ralph Bakker, Rike Bartels, Michael Becker, Joaquim Capdevila, Elisabeth J. Defner, Georg Dobler, Sabine Hauss, Anna Heindl, Elisabeth Heine, Margit Jäschke, Kaori Juzu, Ulla & Martin Kaufmann, Helfried Kodré, Melanie Kölsch, Erika Leitner, Gerti Machacek, Stefano Marchetti, Bruno Martinazzi, Kazumi Nagano, Renzo Pasquale, Francesco Pavan, Annelies Planteydt, Jacqueline Ryan, Per Suntum, Salima Thakker, Annamaria Zanella.

For the gallery-owner Renate Slavik and her team the goal of the gallery is not just to exhibit and offer very special jewellery: they also feel a deep need to make it a place where art-lovers – artists, collectors, representatives of museums, architects and gallery patrons – can come together for exchange of ideas and human communication.

Every single day we receive mails and messages from happy customers telling us how much they love us! We at the Gallery Slavik in Vienna wish to pass on these declarations of love to our artists, because their works of jewellery are daily firework displays of joie de vivre and creative vitality – and inexhaustible sources of energy and zest.
