Sandra Ainsley Gallery is the leading contemporary glass art gallery in Canada. In business since 1984, numerous outstanding international artists are exhibited representing an extensive diversity of artistic approaches and techniques. The gallery is committed to the highest possible quality and to help building private and public collections. In September 2012, the Toronto-based gallery moved to a spectacular new space of 8,000 sq. foot/750 m² in a warehouse with ceilings reaching 22 feet/7 m high. Dramatic lighting and an open-concept layout are an ideal backdrop for the gallery’s trademark collection of contemporary sculpture.
It was no coincidence that Magdalena and Wiktor Borowski opened their contemporary art gallery in 2010. Art is formative in the family history as many generations inherited knowledge and skills complemented with a deep passion for art. The gallery’s collection focuses on sculpture, contemporary paintings and photography, working closely with emerging and established international artists. Our collaboration has always been highly successful, and I always gladly commit to show my latest work at Continuum. Located on the Wintermühlenhof manor, the gallery is part of an architectural monument with a history going back over 600 years. Königswinter is a 15 min drive from Bonn, Germany.
The gallery was founded by Tom Stölting in 2013 to mark the 25th anniversary of Glasgalerie Hittfeld, opened by his mother Eliska Stölting in 1988. He devotes himself to carry on his mother’s internationally renowned gallery to the next generation. Located in Hamburg-HafenCity, the venue owes its fascination to being surrounded by water and the dichotomy of historic warehouses and modern architecture. The gallery’s focus is on leading Czech glass artists. I am proud to be one of the few “foreign” artists in the gallery, and to see my work in good company beside the masterworks by Libenský & Brychtová, Ivan Mareš, Josef Marek or Jan Fišar. Gallery Stölting was involved in developing the collection of the Achilles Foundation.
