Art in Halland scholarship holder Sofie Karlsson

9 June, 2021

Sofie Karlsson

We can proudly announce that @ sofiekarlsson.textileart will come to us in September!

In March 2021, Art in Halland invited visual and design artists to apply for a residence scholarship to Denmark (1–20 Sep) and to Ricklundgården in Saxnäs (1–14 Sep). Based on the applications received, the jury has decided that the scholarship to Denmark will be awarded to Susanne Westerberg and to Saxnäs, 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. ”

It is an honor to have the opportunity to take care of Sofie and we wish both her and you who are reading a great summer! Sofie, see you in autumn

It is impossible to describe in words how this whole week has been so I have decided not to do it! Instead, I will tell you about yesterday when we finally got a visit from Sara!

Sara works as a project manager for @sapmisalasta and earlier last winter when we talked, we had many great ideas and thoughts about possible cooperation across the mountain border.

Exciting people who lives an exciting life.
