There is no better place for art lovers than Budapest, we believe. The Golden Duck Gallery serves as a stunning place for meeting art from all over the world in one place. Start preparing for spring with us!

After the grey colors of winter Budapest starts to regain its true colors in March. The picteresque city becomes colorful again, creating a gorgeous backdrop for any type of art.

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. 

Here you can see how grand openings go in our gallery.
