Opening of the Exhibition "Summer Studio by the Sea. The Artist’s Place Ahrenshoop”
Perfect matching with the beautiful summer evening we yesterday opened our new exhibition with artistic works of the sun and the sea. We thank the art historian Mrs. Dr. Ruth Negendanck for her informativ opening speech about the artist’s place Ahrenshoop and its more than 120 years of history.
In our presentation we show works by artists of the first hour up to contemporary art. It was a pleasure for us to welcome Vera Schwelgin, Karin Schöpa and Wolfgang Reinke to the opening who are currently finding inspiration in the expanses of the Darß' coastal landscape.
Opening of the Exhibition "Dieter Finke. Sculpture and Painting"
We were delighted to open our new exhibition with works by Dieter Finke – the first showing of his art since his death in 2011. This event was a rare pleasure for us, our guests and espacially for his friends. Forceful sculptures and paintings full of intensity and a fondness for experimenting stand side by side. This gives special insights into Finke's comprehensive œuvre.
We are grateful to Dr. Viola Stephan and Constantin Stephan, the estate managers, for their support. Since Dieter Finke was awarded with the Georg-Kolbe-Prize in 1967, it was a particular honour, that Dr. Julia Wallner, the director of the Georg Kolbe Museum, introduced the exhibition.

New Year’s Reception with Film Screening about Renée Sintenis
For over 30 years, the voice of the Berlin Bear was heard again for the first time on January 10, 2018. On the occasion of the finissage of our exhibition “Coat · Feather · Fin” and for welcoming the new gallery year we showed a long time forgotten 16mm documentary out of the archive from the former “Landes-Film-Dienst Berlin-Brandenburg” about the famous sculptress Renée Sintenis. Every year filmmakers are honoured with her bear-sculpture at the Berlinale Festival.
We thank Dr. Axel Roch, lecturer at the Art University Weißensee, for the screening of this historic film document which gives a vivid impression of the artistic work of Sintenis in image and sound.
