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

The inauguration of Sara Cultural Centre

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.

I would like to share something with you…

I would like to share something with you…

Lately, I have repeatedly heard how much this place means to the experience and the feeling in the context. I agree and I agree so sincerely. What I want to draw attention to now is also how much the individual means to reinforce all that this place stands for.

Hej! Vad vill du göra?
