Erich Hauser – An unmistakable language of form!
Dear friends of art & art lovers,
On April 20th we had the pleasure together with Jürgen Knubben, our customers and friends to open this special exhibition.
More than 17 unique works, most of which are no longer available on the art market, are currently on display and available for purchase in cooperation with the “Kunststiftung Erich Hauser”.
Thus, we as a team are proud to be able to show this wonderful exhibition until 15.06.2023.
We are looking forward to your visit!
Your Verena Wieland
With innovative approaches, Verena Wieland brings contemporary art into the future and into the centre of society.
Verena Wieland has been shaping the Ulm art scene for more than a decade. In 2012, she took over the Venet-Haus Galerie, which was founded in 2007 and created a place that not only brings young and contemporary artists together with an interested public. She has also added new radiance to Ulm’s cultural life beyond the state’s borders.
Verena Wieland sees herself as an innovative gallery owner with visions and new ideas regarding the art market. One result of her tireless and passionate work for art is her second gallery, which opened in 2021 on Ulm’s Münsterplatz and carries the universal idea of art into the centre of society.
A passion for art was awakened at an early age
Verena Wieland discovered her love to art at a very early age. Even today, she can remember with pleasure visits to museums and exhibitions as a child and teenager. Now, as then, her access to works of art was a very immediate one. It is probably due to these early experiences with real works of art that today she can only really experience art through direct access, in galleries or museums.
Her affinity for art finally led Verena Wieland to study literature, art and media at the University of Constance after graduating from high school. Even after her studies, she closely followed current developments and trends in the German art scene as a marketing manager at the Best Western hotel group.
The crucial impulse came from an art collector
Some ideas need some time to mature. And these ideas sometimes need an impulse to finally be translated into action. Verena Wieland finally received such an impulse from Werner Schneider, her former father-in-law at that time and still a passionate patron of art today. Together with him, Verena Wieland visited numerous art fairs and exhibitions. At the same time, she was already able to establish many valuable contacts with artists, gallery owners and art professionals. Verena Wieland was able to gain very practical experience of the art scene while looking after private art collections. Full of new inspiration and new ideas, Verena Wieland finally took over the Venet-Haus Galerie in 2012.
The Venet-Haus Galerie: An important space for contemporary art in Ulm
There had been nothing comparable in Ulm before. From the very beginning, the Venet-Haus Galerie, run by Mrs. Wieland, has promoted contemporary emerging young artists from Southern Germany, but also actively researched young talents at art fairs worldwide. At the same time, the gallery understood and still understands itself as an important platform for the art world, where gallery owners, artists or curators can meet, collaborate and exchange ideas. This collaborative and interactive approach is one of the unique selling points of the Venet-Haus Galerie.
With innovative approaches, Verena Wieland brings contemporary art into the future and into the midst of society
For her, art is an important form of expression for thoughts and feelings. Central to her gallery concept is therefore that visitors can experience art. The choice for the location of Verena Wieland’s second gallery was therefore no coincidence: Ulm’s Münsterplatz. It brings art to a central place in the social and public life of the Münsterstadt and thus the lively idea of art that can be experienced right in the middle of society.
With the perfect mix of Ms. Leinhoss current bachelor’s degree programme at the University of Applied Sciences in Neu-Ulm, she is able to combine theoretical learning with practical knowledge. Motivated and full of enthusiasm towards new experiences and projects, Saskia Leinhoss was able to discover a hidden fascination and passion for art.
After 20 years of successful entrepreneurship in sales, Norbert Leins now joins the team as an expert who looks at the art business from a different perspective – that of an art collector. Mr. Leins brings his love and passion for collecting art to Venet Galerie and our customers can look forward to valuable advice and exclusive information.
At the end of her studies in Information Management and Corporate Communications, Anna Häberle strengthens the gallery team with another member. She brings her theoretically learned knowledge and fresh ideas to the gallery and supports the team flexibly in all areas. Our customers can look forward to great advice.
"Constructive Calculation" - Erich Hauser's Steel Sculptures and Drawings Hardly any sculptor has left such a mark on German cities with his sculptures as Erich Hauser. Currently, more than 160 of his works can be found in public places, in front of public authorities, schools or museums. Erich Hauser's preferred material is metal, especially steel, which in all probability can be interpreted as an echo of his teaching profession. In cooperation with the Kunststiftung Erich Hauser e.V. we are pleased to present this unique artist in the rooms of the Venet-Haus Galerie from 20.04.23. Opening: 20.04.23
With a few clicks you can find art that is fun! Choose between countless young, well-known, new artists and find your unique piece and/or edition on canvas, wood, metal or paper. Relax and browse through the whole range of artistic forms of expression.
