Based on this realisation, I have run my gallery since 1996
Founded in 1996, the gallery focuses on the many and diverse expressive possibilities of contemporary art in fired clay – from exquisite examples of vessel ceramics to sculptural pieces, all of which go far beyond traditional notions of »applied« art.
Against the backdrop of the bare stone walls of the gallery with their wabi-sabi aesthetic, each exhibition conducted in the context of the annual succession of spring, summer and autumn comes across as excitingly different and new.
The exhibits frequently appear in a dialogue with contemporary painting born of a kindred spirit. The programme of the gallery includes both German and international positions. In particular, the gallery is responsible for the artistic legacy of ceramic sculptor Klaus Lehmann, who died in 2016. Gallery owner Angelika Metzger would like to pass on to as many visitors as possible the motto: »Art is simply essential to me«.
