About us

Salon Vert was founded by Angela Wollny in 2014 in Carouge, Geneva. Since then, the gallery and its artists have considerably developed. Over time, the exhibitions have traced a unique path that questions the natural world and the idea of narration through works of art that employ a mastery of different media and an immersion into the practice of art. The gallery forefronts classical techniques (drawing, painting, printing, ceramics, découpage, sculpture, needlework…) that are reinvented and re-applied within contemporary contexts.

In 2016, Salon Vert was admitted into Geneva’s association of contemporary art galleries (Geneve.Art) as well as the association of art galleries of Carouge (ArtCarouge). Le Salon Vert participates in local events like the Parcours Céramique Carougeois as well as international fairs like Paper Positions in Berlin and Basel and Volta in Basel.

Gallery and exhibited artists have received Swiss and international prizes such as the Swiss Art Award 2020 (Séverin Guelpa/finalist, Philippe Fretz/finalist), the Kiefer Hablitzel Prize (Joëlle Isoz), the Prix Fondation Alice Bailly (Noémie Doge, Diane Chappalley), the Prix Picker Aparté (Séverin Guelpa), the Jerwood Drawing Prize (Juliette Losq, Sue Williams A’Court), the John Ruskin Prize (Juliette Losq), the Pollock Krasner artist grant (HIPKISS) and others.

Work by Salon Vert artists is included in numerous private and institutional collections, including the FMAC/Fond Municipal of the City of Geneva (Qiu Jie, Philippe Fretz, Benoît Billotte), the MUDAC, Lausanne’s Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts (Benoît Billotte), the Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Museum in London (Chris Drury), the Fondation de l’Entreprise Hermès (Stéphane Erouane Dumas), the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (HIPKISS), the  Kupferstich Kabinett in Berlin (HIPKISS), the Musée Jenisch in Vevey (Francisco Sepulveda) and the Sammlung Ludwig (Heike Weber). Chris Drury and Heike Weber were invited, within the framework of private and public commissions, to create architectural works.
