Dear customers, friends and loyal companions of Kunst Kompetenz Petra Kern,
We are looking forward to our last exhibition in 2023 in a Christmas atmosphere:
You are cordially invited to our opening of the exhibition: “Conrad Sevens, Alain Le Boucher & an Advent Calendar” on Thursday, November 30th, 2023 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m
Opening hours of the gallery: Wed-Fri 2 p.m.-7 p.m. and Sat 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Exhibition until January 20, 2024.
The romance of nature, symphonies of light and a new surprise every day until Christmas await you!
The painter Conrad Sevens reveals a reality that gives anyone who is touched by his art a poignant and almost spiritual premonition of the beauty of nature and life. His paintings are an expression of inner color nuances, captured in a language that expresses itself through a wonderful wealth of fine poetry.
Alain Le Boucher's light objects offer us a symbiosis of sculpture, science and poetry. And all three components intentionally remain visible: the skeleton of his sculptures, the welded metal pieces, the LED lights, microprocessors that command the light sequences are visible at all times until they disappear from the viewer's perception and the presence of the light and its movements fill its mental space. Rejoice!
In December you can marvel at a new work of art behind a new “door” of our Advents Calendar every day. Follow us on Instagram #kunstpetrakern.
With kind regards from the entire team at Galerie Petra Kern
Yours Petra Kern
HUXLEY&HEINZ from October 19th (vernissage) to November 18th, 2023 with the two internationally known artists Jonathan Huxley and Jürgen Heinz.
The painter Jonathan Huxley, *1965, lives and works in London, studied at the Fine Art Trent Polytechnic Nottingham from 1987 to 1989, graduating with a BA Honors degree He then attended the Royal Academy of Arts London and graduated with a diploma from the Royal Academy of Arts London in 1992. Jonathan has distinguished himself internationally through numerous exhibitions in London, Paris, Basel, Miami and Karlsruhe and can be found in public and private collections. In the pictorial works of Jonathan Huxley we repeatedly experience the examination of human events. The artist shows himself in various moods and dynamics, getting to the bottom of human behavior: “Who are we really under the protective layer of appearances?” (J. Huxley)
The metal sculptor Jürgen Heinz, *1969, lives and works in his studio in Lorsch in Germany. He is the winner of the jury prize of the Mörfelden Walldorf Sculpture Park 2015, Moving Column Prize winner of the International Art Competition "Bewegter Wind, Edition 10, Change?!", 2021, Moving Square. Jürgen Heinz is represented at international art fairs such as art KARLSRUHE, ART STRASBOURG, ART BRUSSELS, BASEL CONTEMPORARY; his works are partly temporary, partly permanently installed in public spaces and in museums and art spaces such as the sculpture hall of the Roland Phleps Foundation for Concrete Art and the Stangenberg Museum Merck. With a light impulse, a gentle touch from the viewer, Jürgen Heinz's steel sculptures start moving. The artist overcomes the apparent gap between cold, archaic steel and gentle movement in a virtuoso way: "The soul of the object is revealed through movement." (J. Heinz)

Cordial invitation to the exhibition "Memories" street art by Jana & JS and sculptures by Claudia Pense The vernissage will take place on April 20th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Petra Kern in conversation with Jana&JS and Claudia Pense We are looking forward to your visit.
The exhibition runs until May 20, 2023 in the Petra Kern Gallery, Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 25, in the old town of Heidelberg. The opening hours are as usual Wednesday to Friday 2-7 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Street art by Jana & JS, stencil technique on canvas, assemblages or found objects and sculptures by Claudia Pense meet in this exhibition. We remember live moments with the artist couple Jana & JS in Mannheim and Heidelberg last year. Austrian and French street artists Jana & JS have been painting together since 2006. The couple creates polychrome stencil murals of varying sizes. Based on her personal photographic work, the stencils appear to react and interact with their surroundings.
Claudia Pense, a freelance artist from Kelkheim, prefers to experiment with stone and brings it into dialogue with other materials such as metal and acrylic. She is dedicated to dealing with nature, its change and fragility and shows this in numerous art projects; however, in her artistic dialogues we often also find human interaction, our own relationship dialogue. The "Memories" exhibition shows different facets of the artist, from figurative bronze sculptures to abstract sculptures made of stone, metal and acrylic.
We look forward to your visit Cordially Petra Kern & TEAM
