In recent years, Trondheim has developed into a hotspot for art and visual design in Norway. The city was recently described in NY Times Travel Magazine as ‘one of Europe’s northernmost creative hubs’. Within the city’s expansive scene, Galleri 7 has become an important art and design destination.

A key element in Galleri 7’s philosophy is versatility. “We are a concept gallery and collaborating design studio, not a traditional gallery,” emphasises the owner, Tania Winther. She is herself a multimedia artist who designs and curates spaces and products, working at the intersection of art, design and product design.

What is art?

“We are on a journey to re-invent new artwork and designs through monthly themed exhibitions. Using fashion, textiles, design elements and art. At Galleri 7 we present ARTWEAR, sculptures, wool felt and much more,” Winther explains.

Galleri 7 attracts and promotes a younger scope of artists and designers, who contribute to its dynamic creative atmosphere. A major focus of the gallery is supporting collaborations between the different artists and their artforms.

Customers embrace quality

“Galleri 7 offers original products that can be bought onsite and ordered through its website. “We host everything from solo to group exhibitions as well as selling specially-curated boutique items in our small, niche shop and coffee lounge,” says Winther.

The latter part of 2022 will see a variety of exhibitions and artforms on show. Some will focus on painted works, whereas other exhibitions combine new design, sculpture and more. Quality is a keyword: “particularly amongst the younger generation interested in artwork and new design, there’s a tendency to value quality over quantity,” Winther outlines.

New ARTWEAR concept

A new concept that Galleri 7 is promoting is ARTWEAR – specially-curated pieces of art that explore the realm of fashion, by local Norwegian designers who focus on sustainability rather than mainstreaming. The upcoming plans also include local pop-up exhibitions in Trondheim, and perhaps further afield. ” Our aim is to help people see the possibilities with a curated space and allow ourselves to fill our walls with good art!” summarises Winther.
