To view additional past exhibitions & events (2011-2017),
(To be announced)
The gallery is looking to show artists who have their own unique vision, and present their artistic world, a world that represents the now, the past and the future. Sometimes it is romantic and often ironic and cynical.
Schaeffers Gate, literally meaning “Schaeffer’s Street,” was originally (and coincidentally) named after Henrik Ernst Schäffer (1794-1865), a Norwegian teacher and customs official who established a grant to support youth who wanted to become artists, “where the interest should be distributed to young people, who have the desire and talent in the Arts (painting, sculpture and poetry) but who lack the financial means to begin and continue their studies.”
Schaeffers Gate 5 was first established as an art space during Oslo Open in September 2011.
