We’ve got an awesome summer and year ahead of us at House of Helsinglight! There are so many happenings and creative adventures booked and in the planning stage! All from FX workshops to Art Exhibitions, Performance Art & concerts, Launch of Alternative Artist in Residence test program etc. If you haven’t decided yet on your holiday plans - why not set your sight on a visit or creative stay at House of Helsinglight!
The old school house in Vattlång is currently owned by Petra Shara Stoor and Fredrik Fernlund and goes under the name Helsinglight. It also used to be the artistic residency, art studio and gallery to the renowned Swedish artist Gunnar Greiber and his wife and artist Else Nyström Greiber. A tribute art exhibition to Gunnar Greiber will be now organised in Nordanstig and Helsinglight Art Gallery will be part of this joint exhibition and exhibit artwork from their art collection by Gunnar Greiber.
The Grand opening night was a great success. Many came to share this evening and special occasion with us and showed such appreciation of our beautiful gallery space as well as great interest and appreciation of the art exhibited by artist and co-owner of Helsinglight Petra Shara Stoor. We opened up the doors to our gallery at 6 pm and we celebrated the grand opening until Midnight.
We’ve got a great vision to create an artistic and magical destination/platform with our Helsinglight! A creative place filled with various alternative artworks and performances, everywhere.. We’re inspired by Norse Mythology and Swedish folklore, mixed with LOTR, Narnia, Harry Potter, Pan’s labyrinth, The Addams Family, Alice in Wonderland... and we’ll add some of traditional Hälsingland, Sweden to it too.
Our primary goal is to show case and exhibit alternative/subcultural arts, performances, music and experiences. We're often creating artistic adventures and events quite far away from the mainstream culture. We love to explore and share the passion and soul behind the expressive artwork of the alternative and subcultural world of artists and performers.
