Opening Hours: Tuesday - Friday 14:00 - 18:00, Saturday: 10:00 - 13:00

The Lehner Gallery was founded in 1973 in a climate of cultural turmoil by Mag. Hermann Lehner as "The Gallery for Contemporary Art" and is one of the oldest existing private galleries in Austria. In June 2005 the site of the Lehner Gallery was relocated from Linz to Vienna, where it is currently located on Getreidemarkt 1 near the Secession, Academy, and Museums Quarter in the center of the citys art district.

The gallery has now held more than 300 public exhibitions with approximately 150 artists, some of whom made their debut there. This record is remarkable and includes the names of Fritz Aigner, Franz Ecker, Margret Bilger, Vilma Eckl, Roland Ladwig, Egon Hofmann, Heinrich Krause, and Alfred Kubin. Artists from the younger generation including Hans Andreas, Harald Birklhuber, and Susanne Purviance have also found permanent exhibitions in the Lehner Gallery. Important representatives of classical modernity, especially from the areas of New Objectivity and Expressionism, top off the program. Most notably the artists Conrad Felixmüller, Erich Waske, Frans Masereel, and August Wilhelm Dressler exhibited in this gallery. The Lehner Gallery created a place for art lovers and collectors to meet where discussion, debate, and the exchange of experiences was given more space.
