About

 

Andenken Gallery was started in Denver Colorado in 1997. 

From the beginning our interest has always been progressive contemporary art.  It's a broad term admittedly, and taste based for sure.  

We've hosted +/- 200 ish shows in that period of time.  We've been blessed to show some of the best contemporary artists in the Street Art, Skateboarding Culture, Graffuturism and Abstract Contemporary movements.  

We've had a bunch of locations since starting the gallery.  Our first 4 spaces were in Denver, and then we had 5 spaces in Amsterdam...now we are on to our first space in Portugal, it's called 'The Holdout' and it's about an hour north of Lisbon in a little place called Areeiro, in the township of Alcobaça. 

In the spring of 2018, we purchased the land and old farm buildings that have now become The Holdout.  It's about 2 hectares of land, with an apple orchard, a gallery space, a visiting artist 'clubhouse' and an old barn (currently being converted into a large permanent studio).

It's been a constant battle keeping our google maps location(s) up to date   but it looks like 'The Holdout' is set to be a truly permanent home for the gallery and a place for artists to enjoy short residencies. 

Now for the important stuff: 

Our policy about purchasing, is straight forward.  If you collect artwork from us, we will do whatever we must to insure your satisfaction.   

Shipping is almost always FedEx, or DHL and those are our default.  Sometimes, by necessity or availability we ship by other means, but will always let you know first. 

Preferred contact is email, write us about whatever is on your mind
