About Zink Waldkirchen
Not off the grid. Just doing what we love, where we want!
Waldkirchen has been a place of pilgrimage since 8th century AD. The church and the parish house built in the 1880s were the heart of the village. Perched atop a hill with sweeping views, this was the perfect location for Galerie Zink Waldkirchen.
In Fall 2017, we began remodelling a neighbouring building to create the new gallery space, art storage, and an artist studio. Designed by Swiss architects from Atelier Dimanche – Mathieu Robitaille & Tamara Henry, the space opened officially on 6 April 2019.
Along with the gallery’s relocation came a renewed focus on the core of the gallery’s activities. Our primary interest has always been to find artists that have a strong artistic vision and the potential to build up a coherent oeuvre in the context of developments in contemporary art. We see the same strong artistic vision in artists with a background in crafts, and decided to represent the best of these artists that working in between craft and art to enhance the appreciation on both sides.
