Steve Bettman is back with a new solo exhibition!3 October, 2019
We are pleased to once again be able to show Steve Bettman’s such popular watercolors.
Vernissage on Saturday October, 12 from 12-16
The exhibition is ongoing until October 27th.
Steve is trained in both watercolor and oil painting and has found his unique style from the two different worlds; the watercolor with its fast and spontaneous expression and the oil’s methodical, solid feel. The motifs are usually landscapes, sea motifs and portraits. He emphasizes the simplicity of his surroundings in a confident and self-evident way.

The exhibition “Color and form” with Masayoshi Oya and Anne Walker23 April, 2019
An exciting meeting between ceramics and photo art in our next exhibition running April 27 – May 12.
The potter Masayoshi Oya and the photographer Anne Walker are exhibitions together.
Traditional art and crafts from Japan have been a great source of inspiration for Masayoshi and it is the mixture between the Swedish and the Japanese that shapes his ideas and himself as an artist. He turns in stoneware and porcelain and his works are covered by sophisticated and vibrant glazes. His ceramics are characterized by a distinctly aesthetic approach but also a subtle playfulness and ease.
Anne is inspired by Impressionism and Abstract Art, her images are elusive, metaphorical, and poetic. Her camera is her brush and nature is her palette. Anne’s photographs have received numerous international awards.
Vernissage Saturday, April 27 at 12-16

First solo exhibition this year!9 January, 2019
We are happy to introduce Natalia Johansson in this year’s first exhibition.
She is educated at Mukhina Art Institute. Since the 90’s she has been living and working as an artist in Stockholm. She has exhibited in art galleries, museums and galleries all over Sweden and abroad.
Natalia paints mainly in oil and acrylic.
“I am inspired by everything possible that I see in front of me, sometimes it can be small cities that I visit, sometimes groups with people. It is very different impressions that give imput to the motives in my paintings. I try to stylize and create my own way of painting. I am very interested in different combinations of colors – how they work together and what effect one can get on a canvas “

The exhibition runs until Feb, 10.
