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...

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 ...

'STREAKS OF COLOUR'

Painting and drawing are my main techniques, but I like to work in mixed materials with chalk, spray, templates and textiles. Colour is what  comes first - when I find the nuances, the contrasts, the luminosity, then I also find the shapes. The political '68 affected me in different directions and made me falter before I stood steadily at the easel.  Nowadays, I think that each theme, each artwork, each intention requires its expression, its image, - the color, shape, and content.

GALLERI UPSALA 1810
Svartbäcksgatan 21
753 32 UPPSALA

Kenneth Engblom is a painter whose art is mostly inspired by old houses, churches and towers which he has spotted during his travels in Italy, Spain, Estonia, China and other countries. He prefers to show his art in most unexpected places like in the catacombs of the Crypt Gallery in London, the old cable factory in Helsinki, the antique furnace in Deruta, the Glyptotheque in Tartu, the medieval castle tower in Paide, the Forsby-Köping limestone cableway or the open air museum of Mannaminne.
This is the first time for the artist to exhibit...

The opening takes place in Värdshuset (the restaurant)

Cecilia Ciscar has taken on the project to fill tram nr. 143 from Norrköping with passengers. The tram retired in 2000 and found a resting place in Ångermanland 2 years later, far from its place of birth and far from its workplace.
In the summer of 2018 the visitors to Mannaminne will meet Cecilia Ciscar's faces, which together with the tram will become one work of art. The 'streetcar faces' observe the wide entrance of this open-air museum created by Anders and Barbro Åberg.
The simplicity of our artist's faces is apparent. The pursuit o...

The opening takes place in Önlogen

The exhibition is part of the NORDINGRÅ KONSTRUNDA  18 - 20 May 2018

Our summer exhibition in Mannaminne has already become a tradition. This summer we have at our disposal the high-vaulted Örnlogen which is ideal for larger artworks; the timbered cottage from Estonia with its intimate interior and the first tram in Tallinn - a somewhat unusual but cool space for an exhibition.

Past shows: "Memories", Frang Dushaj - "Memories in Black and White", Kenneth Engblom - "My Estonia", "Flashbacks", Memories from Estonia", "Good Old Memories", Frang Dushaj - "More...
