A different experience

We have made significant changes to our space and turned it into an art salon plus artist studio - for more intimate and personal exhibitions and events.

You can find our current program below.

If you want to keep updated about what’s happening, please check back here, subscribe to our newsletter and/or follow us on the social web.


Here at heliumcowboy we have been constantly changing the way we approach art and its presentation. It is part of our long history. Since Januayr 2018 we are taking the liberty again to abandon the traditional gallery model and turn our space into a living and breathing “art salon”. With only few exhibitions per year, but always an open door (just pop by or make an appointment) and by adding more intimate, personal events and some more talking (heliumTALK podcast) to the program.

Upcoming & current shows:


Saturday, August 24 , 2019 | 15–22  

Jens Rausch:

We are happy to announce the third solo-exhibition by Jens Rausch at heliumcowboy.

Artists of the gallery

In between our regular exhibitions we constantly redecorate our beautiful space with new & archive work by our artists. Just come around, we are at the gallery most of the days from Monday – Friday. And of course making an appointment is also a grand idea, because then we are definitely there for you…

And of course you should always visit our online-portfolio on Artsy!

Alex Diamond:
Kind, gentle and fully dressed

Well, sometimes it is hard to believe but our very own Alex Diamond's last pure solo exhibition with heliumcowboy has been back in 2009 ...

… so it was about time we gave up the whole space to our founder and first Cowboy this winter!

Jens Rausch

After his debut with heliumcowboy last year we are bringing him back to the Ranch: Jens Rausch will be showing with us again this fall and he is taking a brand new series of work along with him.

New materials, new theme, but still focusing on his distinct approach to structural and vivid portraits of nature.

We love to work with other creatives, we love to broaden our horizon, and for those reasons we have been inviting guest curators to the Ranch frequently in the past.

For "CRISP" we are teaming up with our good friend Rune Christensen and jointly selected a great line-up of international artists.
