Opening Reception Thursday January 16, 6 – 8 PM.
Wetterling Gallery proudly presents the group exhibition WG.Editions; a versatile art exhibition where the participants range from contemporary Scandinavian artists to American Pop Art icons, and the artworks consists of everything from prints and collages to sculptures. The exhibition will coincide with the launch of our webshop, enabling you to see and purchase a selected number of artworks from the comfort of your own home. You will find the webshop here and it will be up and running from January 16!
An edition is a series of identical artworks, often made in a limited edition where every work is numbered and signed by the artist. This way of working transcends artistic movements and is used by well-established high-end artists as well as rising stars. These conditions make editions not only the perfect type of artworks to kick off our brand-new webshop, but the alterability in techniques and materials used also lays the foundation for a dynamic group exhibition.
