Artists at the Gallery

Artists at the Gallery

Daliesque

I visited the art gallery in Österhaninge on Saturday, Galleri Kyrkskolan that is located next to the Medieval Church. They have a Easter Exhibition at the gallery over the weekend, so if you live in the area you can visit today or on Monday. To show you some of the artwork I made a collage with a few photos from the artist studios, and a 360 panorama from the show room. The people you see here are Seija Swanberg, and Marie-Anne Kronqvist. There's also two paintings from Karen Nordsø Lundberg, and a sculpture from the show room. As I was talking to Marie-Anne she wanted me to have a look at a painting made by her son. For some reason it was hidden under a blanket (second photo). I thought it looked a bit Daliesque. The obviously talented artist is called Leonard Riem-Vis. That sounded a bit familiar, and when I googled his name I found one of my own posts from a few years ago! After chatting with all the artists and looking at their art I had coffee and cake in the garden. I asked one of the artists Annie Forsberg to snap a photo of me to show you that it was a warm day, despite the snow on the ground. If you want to see more art stuff from Kyrkskolan check out my flickr collection from the last five Art Promenades.

It is especially nice when you get to know the people responsible for the art work. A nice group of photos of a very nice place!

Appreciating art is a nice way to celebrate Easter! Love the panoramic shot especially!

A nice post, I like something more, something less but everything is interesting.

Funny, the painting reminded me of Yves Tanguy. I really like your collage, both the style and content. What application did you use?

Thank you for visiting Oakland Daily Photo and leaving a comment. Please visit again. Carolyn

BTW, I use a Canon Rebel also. Still learning all it has to offer.

He must be a talented artist, remember where you heard it first!

It is a great place Jacob. A few of the artists apologised to me as one of their colleagues had used one of my previous panorama photos (without my permission), on their website, and we sorted that out.

And I even got some Chinese candy!



I use every software I can get my hands on! Gimp, Photoshop and a few more. For the panorama photos I have been using photostitch, autostitch and a few others.

Very artsy - lovely - cool! Do you have any artistic abilities besides photography, Steffe Meister?

GREAT collage!

Not that I am aware of Leif. But hopefully I have a few hidden talents that might pop up sometime in the future.
