Gallery for Contemporary Jewellery · Andrea Schmidt

 

“Life never lies”, is the motto you will read inside the gallery. Except fashion designs, no other artistic expression is closer to a person than the one expressed by jewellery. The works presented by Andrea Schmidt in her rooms often express two personalities at the same time: the one of the artist, and the other – if made-to-order - of the customer. Andrea Schmidt believes it is important to show who had created the jewellery, because it is about art by people for people – jewellery as an individual means of expression, with an obvious link to its owner.
The selection in the gallery reaches from innovative, provocative works up to sculpture-like pieces by internationally renowned jewellery artists. The range goes from outstanding diploma projects by young artists up to award-winning works. Here, you can experience the jewellery and learn about the people and their philosophy that stand behind it.
Regular events and exhibitions create an atmospheric frame to meet the artists in person.
