“Fragile things” at the gallery!4 May, 2018
In the upcoming exhibition we meet two Gothenburg artists. Niklas Fännick who makes sculptures of recycled metal and Charlotta Gavelin, photographer, who shows images made with a very old photographic method, cyanotopi. Different art forms but two artists with similarities in their thoughts and expressions united in the common theme “Fragile things”.
Nature? Life? The time? And what is our relation to the fragile?
In human relation to nature and our environment there are many aspects of fragility, from the life of a grass stream to the great in the environment or a changing landscape. In this exhibition there are different collections over time. It has been compiled into converted objects or arranged for a photographic impression in a way to stop, check, remember and remind.”

Hans-Göran Broman and Torbjörn Hahne together at RiverCity Gallery!3 April, 2018
In the upcoming exhibition Hans-Göran Broman returns and shows his masterly painting in oil. This time together with Torbjörn Hahne, who shows reliefs and images in stoneware and glass. Two highly skilled and experienced artists we are proud to show in a joint exhibition.
Hans-Göran Broman’s painting moves in a boarder zone between the abstract and the figurative. The figures are indicated and it triggers the mind on the viewer. Interesting color and form combinations in a superb technical performance. His interest in painting was first raised at the drawing lessons at school, and he has been painting ever since. Nowadays in a studio at Rydal Museum.
Torbjörn Hahne studied ceramics at Konstfack in Stockholm, and has then been educated in both glass and enamel. Inspiration fetches Torbjörn from nature, trips and hikes. The impressions are collected and then expressed in amazing experimental colors and shapes that grow through, for example, raku burning. It will be a kind of painting with the help of the fire and the oxides. His creation takes place in many stages with sketches, paintings, photographs and screens, both in own studio at Hindås and at KKV in Gothenburg.
Vernissage Saturday April, 14 at 12-16.
The exhibition runs until April, 29.

An exhibition that flows in color, shape and imagination!2 November, 2017
In our next exhibition, November 11-26, we present Maria C Bernhardsson.
Marias paintings flow in color, shape and imagination. It was the dream of a house that got her to start painting her own fantasy house and then it has continued.
Characteristic for Marias painting for many years was naivistic house motifs and strong colors. In recent years, however, the houses have become more diffuse and a little dreamy and painted in many layers but still with strong colors. There is a lot of feeling that rules and Maria rarely knows what it will be from the beginning.
“The color is the most important to me. Gladly with as many colors as possible in combination at the same time. Contrasts, strong colors-bright pastels, dark-luminous, angular, skewed, dreamy, naive, layer on layer. Something is hidden there under all the colors – something pop out. “
Vernissage Saturday November, 11 at 12-16
