Hungarian Parliament in the night lights

We believe Budapest is one of the best destinations for art and its lovers, and we are happy to be the part of artistic life here in Hungary.

The Golden Duck Gallery offers a large physical space for professional art exhibitions. Here in the magnificent ancient city in the very heart of historical Europe art from different countries can easily meet its admirers. 


The Grand Opening Gala

Great feast of art

Meeting art should be a great & picturesque holiday, we believe. That is why we arrange Grand Opening Gala evenings for every exhibition in the Golden Duck Gallery. 

It is our pleasure to ensure all our clients will get a unique opportunity to get to know the art exhibited in the gallery and to meet the artists in person. This tradition is becoming even more important with international art shows. In this case there are only few days the public can meet an artist from abroad. 

These are the fantastic artworks that already were exhibited in our gallery in our past and ongoing exhibitions.
