After several weeks of closure, the Handwerk gallery will reopen with a new exhibition on June, 18th. The exposition "it greens" shows the importance of color as one of the central means in design. Where does the green come from? The exhibition answers this question using many objects made of glass, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, metal and paper. 50 applied artists are exhibiting their work in Galerie Handwerk.

The usual vernissage on the evening before must be canceled this time due to the contact restrictions. However, we look forward to seeing you at the press conference or at one of the many exhibition days. The exposure can be seen from June, 18th to August, 1st at the usual opening times.

The title of the exposition "es grünt" could be programmatic, in view of the loosening up after the long period of restrictions and closures due to the Corona pandemic. But Wolfgang Lösche, director of the Galerie Handwerk, emphasizes: "It's all about color, one of the most important means of design in general. We already had the idea for it a year ago". The exhibition was triggered, as it were, by a particularly impressive green copper bowl made by an art blacksmith from South Tirol. At that time the question arose where the green came from. This is precisely the question that the exhibition is dedicated to, with many objects made of glass, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, metal and paper. Lösche announces: "Many green earth pigments, also from Bavarian deposits, will be exhibited and their significance for painting and monument conservation explained. For example, we are looking forward to the green sandstone from Benediktbeuern. Many administrative buildings in Bavaria were coloured with this pigment, especially in the 18th century".

Part of the new exhibition concept is to provide explanatory texts on the objects. It is astonishing to learn from the exhibits, just as the literature on the colour green tells many exciting stories. A total of 50 designers are exhibiting their work in the Handwerk Gallery. The usual opening vernissage the evening before has to be cancelled this time due to contact restrictions.

Opening hours:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 10 to 18 h
Thursday 10 to 20 h
