Salteriet Gallery Nusfjord
Opening: 28. May (– 31. August 2022)
Olav Harald Ulstein – Painting
Olav Harald Ulstein (born in Hareid, 1963) creates naturalistic landscape paintings. He is perhaps best known for his evocative depictions of countless mountainscapes from Norway’s rugged nature. His works express sincere love for the wildness and drama of the landscapes we Norwegians are so fond of. This exhibition will also be about the mountain landscape that surrounds Nusfjord.
Opening: 21. may (– 30. april 2023)
Tiina Kivinen – Graphics og installation
Tiina Kivinen is a visual artist and printmaker based in Finland. She was the first person to receive the Queen Sonja Print Award in 2012. She has held solo exhibitions in Dalslands kunstmuseum, Sweden (2016); Kunstverket Galleri, Oslo (2013); and Galerie Arktika, Marktoberdorf, Germany (2011); as well as several solo exhibitions in Finland.
Season Opening 2022
The gallery will open in mid-May this year. Saturday 21 May is the starting shot for the exhibition with Tiina Kivinen who was named the first winner of the Queen Sonja Nordic Art Award. Works by H. M. Queen Sonja will also be on display. One week later, the exhibition opens on the newly renovated ground floor with Olav Harald Ulstein. The exhibition is a dialogue between visual art and textile, landscape and animal, and between subject and object.
The gallery is under renovation
Our wish is that Salteriet Galleri Nusfjord shall become an exhibition space over two floors where works of art in all genres can be experienced. Both floors will have their own character. On the ground floor, walls and lighting are now being renewed and the room will be designed as a viewing place in a modern style with light walls. The first-floor ceiling will be opened up in the middle of the room, in order to create a dialogue between both floors. The second floor has already been refurbished with new panels lining the walls, providing a warmer impression of the space.
New gallery manager
In March 2022, Gerald Maximilian Bliem was hired as the gallery manager and cultural director in Nusfjord. With his background as an architect, he has since 2009 worked with exhibitions involving art and architecture. After running his own gallery in Oslo, including traveling exhibitions in Norway, Gerald has been employed as the general manager of Bærum Kunstforening. Thereafter he worked with light art and light festivals, before coming here to Salteriet in Nusfjord.
