After one of the toughest work years things are starting to quiet down at Gallery Galschiot. We are preparing for a needed Christmas vacation.
The big happenings are shelved for a while. We are now modeling, cleaning up and accepting visitors who come by to take a look at the many sculptures at the combined workshop/gallery in Odense, Denmark.
We have decided to cheer things up, so we are giving away free Christmas cards with photos of our sculptures. You are more than welcome to drop by and get a post card, but if you live abroad, you can get it here and print it yourself.
The Impaled Polar Bear sculpture, Unbearable, was retrieved from Bonn last Monday and thus our activities at the UN Climate Conference COP23 are at an end. The conclusions of the conference make some bleak projections for the world's climate and the generations to come. But exhibition wise we are talking about a huge success.
Galschiot's sculptures took a significant share of the press images from the conference. And while these sculptures will not save the world, it is our hope that the sculptural images will provoke some thoughts in the minds of newspaper readers around the world, notching to their comprehension about the seriousness and consequences of the climate catastrophe, which is upon the world. (See the list on the right side, or a pdf with all newspaper articles we found from the summit here).
The summit gave us a lot of good contacts. Amongst others a number of American states that attended COP23 in order to defy Trumps announcement of leaving the Paris Climate agreement from 2015. We hope to use this to make a tour around the USA with the sculpture Unbearable which shows a Polar Bear that is impaled on a CO2 graph. This would be a powerful message to the citizens of the USA, that the world has a huge climate problem and that the US is a very big part of it.   
We at Gallery Galschiøt hope You have a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year
All the best

Gallery Galschiot is owned by sculptor Jens Galschiot and consists 2500 m2 studio and museum. The place is one of Denmark's most spectacular and biggest private art workshops. The place is full of activities, and besides the artist's workshop, there is also a bronze foundry, gallery shop, art schools, wicker workshop, TV-studios, Sculpture Park and a 400 m2 art gallery.
The entire area is approximately 10.000 m2 and it is open for audience all working days between 9am and 5pm. It is open at Sundays between 12am and 4pm. - Closed during the Saturday and other holidays. You can book a guided tour. Free admission.

If you visit Jens Galschiot at his great atelier and workshop, with dedicated people, you will get a feeling of witnessing something great, and as time goes, the life's work will start to form and be seen in the greater perspective, you will understand that this art goes further than the borders of Denmark.

Jens Galschiot is one of a kind on the international and Danish art scene, and his artistic activities have attracted much attention all around the world. His intense commitment, energy and artistic talent has something to say, and his sculptures and art happenings touches everybody who sees them. The entire artistic work is mainly about having something to say and having the heart in the right place - to make the world's sufferings and taboos visible and make the viewer think and make up his own opinion about the matter.

This is art that is not subject to the bourgeois norms. It dares to move against the stream, and that is what great art is about. The strength of the work is that it does not end up in a rigid protest, but offers genuine indignation paired with emotions, aesthetics, sensuality, energy, and humour.
