The salon gallery "Die Möwe" presents modern art of the 20th century. The focus lies on artists whose creative work, due to historical events, has largely been unjustly overlooked. In addition to its shows, the gallery arranges salon evenings to acquaint visitors with the lives and works of selected artists. These evenings feature a mix of various genres.
Many painters, graphic artists and sculptors, who are shown in the gallery, were members of avant-garde artists’ associations like the legendary Storm Circle, initiated by Herwarth Walden, the November Group and the Bauhaus. The gallery focuses on the rediscovery of these outstanding and influental artists.
For more than 120 years artists have estimate Ahrenshoop as a place of creative inspiration. Here on the Darß they found atmospheric themes in pristine nature, the clear northern light and seclusion. In our current exhibition we present paintings from the early 20th century up to works by contemporary artists who are still connected with Ahrenshoop.
