For 60 years now, the workshop's professional weavers have realized motifs, made by both Yugoslav, later Serbian, and a broad international section of artists. The workshop houses a large museum collection of these tapestries, which draw a historical sectional view of modern tapestry.
Curator of the exhibition is weaver and art historian Ulrikka Mokdad, who has a thorough knowledge of the workshop, its history and activities. Read more

Artapestry6

It has been three years since we were last able to present the abundance of expression in woven tapestries that make up ARTAPESTRY. 40 weavers from all over Europe are participating in the triennial this time, giving us an impression of the currents that weaving art is currently preoccupied with. For the sixth time, a jury under the European Tapestry Forum has selected the most beautiful, skilfully executed and most creative tapestries from more than 100 submitters. The first prize this time went to Livia Papai from Hungary for the weaving "Way to light". In addition to the European weavers, two guest exhibitors from the USA have been invited: Helena Hernmarck and Nancy Koenigsberg, two prominent artists who give an impression of what is happening on the weaving scene outside Europe.

HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN'S FAIRY TALES IN CUBAN

Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales are known all over the world, also in Cuba. In the capital Havana lives a magazine illustrator and illustrator - Ricardo Reyes Ramos - with the artist name Richar. He is both a trained draftsman and an economist, born in 1961.
Confronted with Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales, which we perceive as very Danish, Richar has made more than 20 large drawings as illustrations for various of the fairy tales: What the father does is always the right thing to do. The ugly Duckling. The little girl with the matchsticks. The brave tin soldier. KlodsHans et al. Read more

The journey of the blue salmon

It is a life's work that is summed up in this large solo exhibition of completely new works, where visual artist Pia Andersen experiments with new formats and expression media, in parallel with the more classical painting. Some of the new formats are glass works made in collaboration with Per Hebgaard's workshop, others are quite large ceramic works, which she has created in collaboration with a workshop in Spain. Motivationally, the artist uses several of his expressions in his own work. This can be seen, among other things, in the fact that motif elements and colors that have previously appeared in her works now find their way into the new works in a different way. Read more
