Glass exhibition with Mats Jonasson from Målerås

6 October, 2020

We have the pleasure of showing a glass exhibition with the glass artist Mats Jonasson from Målerås.

Preview during “Culture Night” on Friday October, 23  between 15.30 – 19.30

Vernissage Saturday October, 24 at 12 – 16

Early on, Mats Jonasson’s drawing talent was noticed and he began working as an engraving apprentice at the glassworks as early as 1959. During the following decades, he worked with several of today’s great glass artists. At the same time, he developed the style close to nature, which he has since refined to perfection.

“Our forests have affected the people’s soul since time immemorial,” says Mats Jonasson.

Inspired by this nature, he has with open minds created his distinctive objects in crystal. Today, the glassworks’ son is represented all over the world.

The exhibition is running until Nov, 1.

Warm welcome!

ARJUNA GEIR AASEHAUG IN A SOLO EXHIBITION

13 March, 2020

We present Arjuna Geir Aasehaug in a solo exhibition during the period March 21 – April 5, 2020.

In this exhibition we will be met by Arjuna’s dreamy and enigmatic expression.

Arjuna works primarily with acrylic on canvas. He is interested in contrasts in both the technical and the thematic, and is happy to explore the contradictions and different characteristics that live side by side in the world.

“I seek in a poetic way to say something about loneliness, isolation and perishability in human existence. I also explore the meeting between our inner world and the outer; room and movement in the room. People or animals are often found wandering inland in an undefined landscape; People often just like a shadow or a silhouette. Time and work process are also important key words: I want there to be traces of time and work process in my paintings. Often several layers of different worlds on top of each other. “

Arjuna Geir Aasehaug has had several solo exhibitions in Scandinavia in recent years, and he has participated in jury-judged exhibitions; for example the well known Autumn Salon in Edsvik Konsthall both 2015 and 2018.

He was born in 1967 in Bergen, Norway and today lives and works in Partille outside Gothenburg.

Vernissage will be held on Saturday, March 21 at 12-16.

Warm welcome!

Jenny Söderlund in this year’s first solo exhibition

13 January, 2020

We present artist Jenny Söderlund in this year’s first solo exhibition “Summer memories”.
In the exhibition we will show both paintings and sculptures.

Jenny was born in 1972 and lives in Bankeryd just outside Jönköping. Jenny combines her own creation with teaching painting and sketching at Mullsjö Folkhögskola.

Vernissage Saturday, January 25 from 12-16

The exhibition takes place during the period 25 January – 9 February 2020.

“I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember and it started in Grandma’s lap at home in the kitchen. Then the favorite motif was princesses and castles and now, just over forty years later, it is still the girl or woman who is at the center. However, without the princess crown. Animals have always been close to me and cats and dogs are recurring elements in both painting and sculpting.

After many years of devoting myself to acrylic painting, I have started sculpting more and more in recent years. It is exciting to see how my ladies from the paintings “step out” and become a three-dimensional shape.

I see my paintings and sculptures as a touch in a story that I want the viewer to continue to fantasize about. ”

Here you can read more about Jenny and see pictures of her paintings and sculptures.

Warm welcome!
