The gallery V&V was founded in 1982 by the jewelery artists Veronika Schwarzinger and Verena Formanek.
In 1990 V&V moved from Lindengasse to Bauernmarkt 19, in the city center of Vienna.
After the leaving of Verena Formanek to the museum of applied arts, Veronika Schwarzinger controls the gallery on her own. During temporary exhibitions (every 6 weeks) the gallery present artists who left the traditional concept of jewelery behind and dare between applied and fine art.
V&V offers the artists not only the opportunity to exhibit their work in showcases but also to present themselves and their work in an appropriate way. The spectrum of our exhibitions ranges from funtional beyond figurative images and objetive jewelery as far as quotes, which break through conventional jewelery concepts.
An important selection criteria is the quality, which relates to the design, the idea and also the craft.
The gallery is also an information and exchange plattform which works together with other galleries very closely.
In addition V&V is a member of various organisations, such as: the association for promotion and dissemination of contamporary applied art; the forum for jewelery and design in Cologne; the austrian gallery association; etc. .
