Together in Sigtuna

In 970, Sigtuna was founded as Sweden's first town. Today, a thousand years later, Sigtuna is an international meeting place and fourth largest hotel destination in Sweden.

Next to Sweden's smallest five-star hotel, Sigtuna Kulturgård is designed by Evert Milles (brother of the famous sculptor Carl Milles) and was built in 1917 by "Plåt-Pelle" as a residence for his family. In 1995, the enthusiast Inger Kraft started the association Sigtuna Kulturgård with a craft store, gallery on two floors and a café in the garden.

It is the third time that Marita Hörk Suomalainen holds a soloexhibition at Sigtuna Kulturgård.

She has received art education at Gerlesborg's Art School in Bohuslän, the Art School Paletten in Stockholm and attended art- courses at Väsby Konsthall.
She began to paint more seriously in 1988 and then it took off. She sees exhibitions more as a way to develop herself than to advertise her art. She is versatile - over the years many roads have been tried - textile, enamel, clay. Marita paints primarily in oil, though having a slight resista...

Stuff - Installations and one or two paintings.

My creative process is a pendulum movement between conscious thinking and an almost meditative state. Creation gives my thinking a physical form while giving birth to new thoughts and associations: impressions, expressions, impressions in a continuous process. Though I usually focus on the small things in my creation, it makes my world bigger. The creative process means that I constantly want to know more, I am like a researcher.
I like to work with different materials because each individual mater...

Globetrotting in the first tram of Tallinn the artist Orsi Mild reflects on the journey in its windows:

"Painting and creating something gives you an opportunity to learn about the world, yourself and to be able to live life to its fullest. It is constant progress and great fun at the same time.  I have never called it a hobby. Painting is something extra. It is something that increases the quality of life. A luxury.

The ideas come suddenly. I often paint everyday situations. My childlike style showing simple situations is often perceived as naive. The acrylic paint is perfect for the reali...

Elisabet Linna Persson is a visual artist in Luleå and works with painting, graphics, enamel and glass:

´I am always open to new techniques and challenges  ......
My art wants to convey joy and well-being with a touch of seriousness.
Likewise, I also want to live my life.
Actually, everything is about feeling good.
It's fun to create.
My art is immediate and wants to spread joy.
My art is figurative but not realistic.
My pictures are narrative and sparse with details.
I want to make art comprehen...

148 days in a subway? Surely this would be a nightmere and to be able to survive, your mind would have to concentrate on sceneries and life above ground. The artist's task at hand in this exhibition is to show the dark side or the bright side of the journey. Or why not - one from hell and one from heaven!

For many summers in a row now we have shown art in the buildings and vehicles of the Mannaminne Open-air Museum. Last summer we were offered the unique opportunity to make an exhibition ...

A TRIBUTE TO HOKUSAI

Galleri Upsala 1810
Svartbäcksgatan 21
753 32 Uppsala
Sweden

One of Hokusai's many sources of inspiration was water. And in this collective exhibition, we are motivated by nine selected pieces of Japanese woodcuts.

Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾 北斎 (1760– 1849) was a Japanese artist born in Edo (now Tokyo) and  is best known as author of the woodblock print series 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji' ,which includes the internationally iconic print 'Under the Wave off Kanagawa'.

Hokusai began painting around the age of six, perhaps learning from his father, who was a mirror maker whose ...

The Teachers' House
Raekoja plats 14
10146 Tallinn

The Teachers’ House stands right in the middle of Tallinn - in the Town Hall Square. Together with the surrounding buildings it has been in the centre of events for the last seven centuries.

Already in medieval documents we find reference to the citizens that lived and worked here – wealthy merchants, respected artisans, and later even town council members. In 1766 the property was transferred to the Baltic Sea fleet of Tsarist Russia, and the residential space was rebuilt into ceremonial rooms. In the course of the renovations (1766, 1957 and ...
