Visit an artist this summer- or 8

Are you interested in art and staying in Skellefteå? If you are, you shouldn't miss Galleri 1 sommarsalong, it's an exhibition showing work from well known and unestablished artists. In addition there are 8 other artists who are opening their studio doors and workshops, saying "welcome" to everyone who wants to make a visit.


- Sommarsalong. Doesn't it sound nice? Charlotte smiles while she welcomes us to Galleri 1. We have fantasised about doing something like this for years, but now, it's finally happening. Charlotte is one of twelve artists that runs the art gallery at Stationsgatan 1, right next to the Skellefteå river in the city centre.

– The art scene in Skellefteå is actually pretty strong. We have lots of committed artists that work hard, and we inspire and support each other. You know, its very important that you keep the inspiration flowing. When the gallery partners aren’t exhibiting their art the possibility for other artist to use the gallery opens up. So, this summer it’s time for a brand new concept we call – Sommarsalong.


Sommarsalong is between 29/6–13/7 and the gallery is open Tuesday –Thursday  6–8 pm and Saturday– Sunday  12 – 4 pm.
