Akvarell museet





I have spent a few days at Nordiska Akvarellmuseet (the Nordic Watercolour Museum), as an assistant to Helena Roos who is participating in the exhibition Contemporary Nordic Comics that starts next sunday (31 jan - 14 march). From what I've seen so far I think it will be a fun exhibition. As if that wasn't enough, the museum is beautifully situated and has a really good restaurant :)

Here are some of the exhibitors; Katja Tukiainen, Knut Larsson, Bendik Kaltenborn, Amanda Vahamaki, Marko Turunen, Anneli Furmark and Hugleikur Dagsson

the red house is the museum?! Wow, what a setting! And the art looks great, too.

Hi Christiane, the red house is the view from the museum, that is in a more modern building.

Anneli Furmark är en av mina favoriter. Hon har gjort några serier som verkligen är helbra.
Trevlig helg!

oh, i've been to the watercolour museum a few years ago and loved it. it was summer and we admired the houses for the artists in residence and sat on the huge, sun-drenched rocks. such a wonderful memory.

we were at this very spot almost two years ago and it is a gem of a place. coincidentally the show was all California art from my previous life. I agree, the restaurant is Amazing! you are ever so lucky... how fun!!!

A beautiful landscape, but from the warm Canary Islands is hard for me to understand how you can get there by car to see the exhibition. Here when it rains a little, people do not leave their houses.
