APEX – the association for contemporary applied arts
The association APEX was founded by Andrea Achrainer in 1994. The club focuses on the imparting of contemporary applied arts, contemporary jewellery artistry in particular.
Since its foundation, the association has been running a gallery in Hopfgarten (Maierhofgasse 19) where works of national and international artists are on display on a regular basis. More than 60 exhibitions – solo exhibitions as well as exhibitions focusing on central themes – have been on display in that time.
Apart from jewellery artistry, there were also other sectors on display comprising photography, design, ceramics, glass, textiles, publishing and more.
