For a few years at the start of the 1980s Gaudens Pedit ran a gallery in Vienna, later in Innsbruck as well. After several years as an art dealer Pedit decided in 2011 to reopen the gallery in Lienz in East Tyrol. At the end of 2012 a further base with a total exhibition area of more than 250m² was opened in Kitzbühel, the idea being to present the gallery’s programme in one of North Tyrol’s most world-renowned towns.
The focus of the gallery’s activities is, on the one hand, contemporary Austrian painting with its most important exponents plus the fostering of young artists and, on the other, showcasing local artists from East Tyrol.

The gallery lists artists such as Imre Bak, József Bartl, László Fehér, Károly Klimó, István Nádler, Nóra Soós and Tamás Trombitás. Since 1990 – when Gaudens Pedit started to build its collection consisting of Hungarian works – it has maintained close relationship with the Hungarian art scene.
With the participation in Art Market Budapest in 2011, the gallery holds a position based on a mutual information-exchange and shows the Austrian and Hungarian artworks of two different generations in contrast of each other. This concept dominated its appearance in the ARTplacc 2012 and Art Market Budapest 2012.
