Exquisite wood art

Holzkunstgalerie

The Holzkunstgalerie is a wood art gallery that shows objects made of wood, primarily wood turned pieces, as well as individual sculptural works and sculptures, if they fit the topic.

Welcome to the first virtual gallery for wood art in Germany

There is no comparable institution in the whole of Germany that mainly deals with turned woodwork.

The wood art gallery offers you individual exhibitions of national and international woodturning artists and alternating themed exhibitions on different areas, e.g. bowls, vessels, boxes, candle holders etc.

The Holzkunstgalerie is funded by the Hessian Cultural Foundation .

The story behind the

Holzkunstgalerie

With the decline in real-life exhibitions and the pandemic-related “virtualization”, Klaus Kirchner had the idea of a virtual gallery that deals on the one hand with work made of wood and on the other hand with the technique of woodturning.

In order to support this art movement in Germany and Europe and to bring it closer to those interested in art, the wooden art gallery should show works by different artists and also enable sales.

With the promise of funding from the Hessian Cultural Foundation in July 2021, the wooden art gallery project began to become a reality.

Two exhibitions have already taken place in the wooden art gallery with the participation of national and European artists. The 3rd exhibition “Vessels made of wood” can be seen online right now.
