Summer edition Art Karlsruhe

July 2022 – Art Karlsruhe, the International Fair for Classic Modern and Contemporary Art, is ready to open its doors from the 6th to the 10th of July. Due to the local Covid-related situation in the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Messe Karlsruhe had decided to move the fair from its regular date in February to July, which makes it the first exciting summer edition since its start in 2004.

Gallery40NL will present a range of international artists including Olivier Julia, Eliza Kopec, Kate Brett, Rogan Brown, Haringa + Olijve, Dieter Kränzlein, Let de Kok, Eduardo Lacoma, Michiel Jansen, Mari-Ruth Oda, Eef de Graaf and Sabine Lintzen. And a special mention is the presentation of Freddie Soethout’s new body of work “farben sind fliehende formen” that will be officially shown for the first time!

Winner Curatorial Excellence Award

May 2022 – It was an honour to receive the first AAF London Hampstead Curatorial Excellence Award, juried by independent experts Sandy Nairne and Selina Skipwith and fair director Hugo Barclay. Over the years we have honed our presentation to make each individual art work presented on our stand get the special attention it deserves. We believe strongly that less is more.

The positive comments from the many returning visitors to our booths have always confirmed our vision, but being chosen by this independent jury from over one hundred British and international galleries really feels good. A quote from Sandy Nairne: “I admired the carefully balanced, well-judged selection and hang by Gallery40NL – both effective and elegant” . We are very proud indeed!

The wonderful glass objects of Sabine Lintzen

April 2022 – In her new bodies of work Common Ray and Bright Fields renowned German-Dutch artist Sabine Lintzen creates beautiful objects by combining colourful murrini glass discs with large transparent vessels. It is as if biological cells have attached themselves to a bigger organism and have formed one system together. The brilliance of the objects radiates luxury and combines power with the fragility of the glass.

We look forward to present Sabine Lintzens’ works from the Common Ray and Bright Fields series to the many art lovers that visit our gallery at the scheduled upcoming art fairs in Stockholm, Sweden, in Karlsruhe and Hamburg, Germany, and in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Focus on Lille Art Up!

March 2022 – We are ready to kick off our 2022 art fair tour at Lille Art Up! This will be our first art fair in Lille, the capital of the French region Hauts-de-France, and home to approximately six million people. Uncharted territory for our gallery and artist portfolio, so we hope to meet many new art lovers of abstract geometric and abstract organic art works.

We are showing works from Olivier Julia, Michiel Jansen, Dieter Kränzlein, Mo Cornelisse, Eef de Graaf, Eliza Kopec, Kal Mansur, Freddie Soethout, Let de Kok, Kate Brett, Haringa Olijve en Henk van Putten. And especially for this occasion, we are also showing a few special works by acclaimed French artists Henri Prosi and Charles Bézie. Come and see their works at the Lille Grand Palais!

New Jesmonite works by Mari-Ruth Oda

February 2022 – We are very happy to announce our renewed cooperation with Japanese-British artist Mari-Ruth Oda. Between 2012 and 2016 our gallery presented her fabulous ceramic wall sculptures which were received with great enthusiasm by a wide European audience. Since her move a few years back from Manchester to the rural countryside of Wales, she has extensively explored the possibilities of Jesmonite – a stone and resin based composite material – to make new bodies of work.

Currently we have two new series of wall sculptures available that are made with this material, one series of honey-coloured Bath stone works measuring 25x25x7 cm, and one series of nature inspired charcoal black works measuring 29x18x4 cm. We look forward to present you these works!

May many new artworks be with you this year!

January 2022 – Our gallery wishes all art lovers a healthy and prosperous 2022 and sincerely hope that we can bring you many new artworks at the various events that we have scheduled for this year. We were looking forward to Art Karlsruhe mid-February as our kick-off for 2022, but due to corona-related restrictions the organiser has wisely decided to postpone this art fair to July. The first art fair we will now present the works of our hopeful artists is Lille Art Up! in France which is scheduled to take place in March at the magnificent Lille Grand Palais.

Until then we invite you to keep an eye out for new works on our website. Currently we offer Call & Collect or Mail & Ship with global coverage, so no need to miss out on something special…
