About The Gallery of Happiness

 

Over the past two months, @creative.fellowship initiative for promising young talents together with our SAAS Gallery have held a visual art contest on the theme ‘happiness’ among promising young artists from Guatemala, Ukraine, North Macedonia, UK, and Austria.

 

'The Gallery of Happiness' is a virtual exhibition of twenty seven artworks chosen by the Selection Committee at the end of the contest. The gallery opened on 1 June 2021 and the opening was timed to coincide with International Children’s Day.

This virtual exhibition is held within a framework of the @cretaive.fellowship partnership with the Salzburg Festival’s “Jung&Jed*r” program for children and youth. The exhibition is curated by Petra Zublasing, an Italian Olympic athlete and a professional visual artist.
