On Thursday, February 16, 2023, we welcome you to opening of the exhibition "BERNHARD VOGEL – Ein Künstlerleben" in the Petra Kern Gallery at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 25 in Heidelberg's old town. The opening by Petra Kern begins at 7:30 p.m. We kindly ask you to register on 0175 2982284 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The exhibition will then run from February 17 to March 20, 2023 during the usual opening times of the gallery at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 25.
Wednesday to Friday 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.,
Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m
and by personal appointment.
This exhibition, dedicated exclusively to the work of the Salzburg painter, marks the start of our new series of special exhibitions, which will take place four times a year from 2023. This format makes it possible to focus entirely on individual artists presented by the gallery.
More than thirty years have passed since Bernhard Vogel broke with the commercial family tradition and dared to take the step into life as an artist as an autodidact. The rapid and overwhelming success (starting in Austria and spreading internationally from there) that Vogel has enjoyed since the 1980s has continued unabated ever since. The artist is particularly well-known today for the technique of watercolor painting he favors since he made an eye-opening acquaintance with with this technique at a seminar by Irma Toledo. But Vogel also discovered various printing techniques and mixed media works during his career. Right from the start, Vogel used motifs from cities and landscapes from Europe to America in his unmistakable style. Portraits and floral compositions were later added. The seemingly dreamy interpretations – often abstract at first glance, but always rooted in realism – repeatedly open new perspectives for the viewer, including those that are supposedly well-known, such as the New York skyline or the Tuscan hills.
The exhibition "BERNHARD VOGEL – Ein Künstlerleben" is therefore intended to allow not only the presentation of current works but also a retrospective cross-section, and thus make the development of the artist's different creative phases comprehensible through comparison.
We are looking forward to your visit.
Petra Kern & Team
Dear clients and friends of Kunst-Kompetenz-Petra Kern,
a year full of challenges, strokes of fate, economic and global political difficulties is coming to an end. It was exhausting but also characterized by a lot of gratitude for the beautiful encounters, support, and friendship. Now is the time for contemplative days, love, rest and relaxation and a good turn of the year. Let's use the time so that we can start a new year 2023 with many changes and hopefully always good togetherness.
This year we chose an oil painting by Joanna Jesse: "In the tent" as a Christmas picture, as a symbol for friendship - love - hope, because: "Where there is love, the impossible becomes possible." (Buddha)
For the new year there will be a lot of activities. The presentation of dates and what this will be, will follow in the New Year!
The GALERIE in the Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage will remain closed until January 10th. We're taking a well-deserved winter break. From January 11, 2023 we will be there for you again during the usual opening hours.
For all those who want to use their free days between years to visit the gallery, do it! Call us on 0175/2982284 and arrange a personal appointment. We are really looking forward to your call.
Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy start with lots of love into a successful 2023!
Sincerely yours Petra Kern, Claudia Fadani and Cara Hoppe
