Who are The Travelling Art Gallery?

The Travelling Art Gallery is the incredible vision of German born entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Barbara Lenhard and Florian Gast.  The couple originally started the company while living in Cape Town, South Africa where they fell in love with the country and its people.  And since its inception the company has only gone from strength to strength.  Importantly the goal and vision of the company is showcase South African artists to a wider international audience.  Without a doubt providing a platform for these artist that they wouldn’t ordinarily have!

Conversely of course, The Travelling Art Gallery gives the world the opportunity to not only see these extraordinary talents, but also the chance to hang it on their walls!

Where can you find The Travelling Art Gallery?

As the name suggests they are transient and always on the move sharing the joy art brings to the cities they visit in Germany.  In August 2020 The Travelling Art Gallery organised an hugely successful exhibition Kunst Hoch3 here in Frankfurt.    Furthermore, as a result of the pandemic tours and pop ups in Berlin, Duesseldorf, Vienna and Zurich had to be cancelled. Undoubtedly, like everybody and everything else they have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  And as a result, all further plans for 20/21 will be put on hold until the situation is more clear.

However, please be aware you are still able to buy incredible artworks and online catalogues are available to view.  Also for those interested in buying, there is the option to organise a ‘virtual hanging’ at no additional cost!
