The inauguration of Sara Cultural Centre

From my visit last week during the inauguration of Sara Cultural Centre, I have fond memories stored under my skin, close to my heart. I think of the activities inside the walls of the wooden house, I think of the people, who with commitment and a lot of will and love, work to present art and meet people on equal terms. I think of the heat, the conversations, the air hugs and everything that meant a lot between the lines.

Art in Halland scholarship holder Sofie Karlsson

The jury’s motivation reads: “We believe Sofie Karlsson will have good opportunities to work concentrated, deepen her material knowledge and gather ideas as a residence fellow at Ricklundgården. Sofie comes to the mountains in Saxnäs during a period when nature explodes in colors and is visually dramatic. With her interest in nature’s shifts in color, shape and structure, we are convinced that the place will really add new perspectives to her art. ”
