Spring exhibitions at the cultural centre
Saturday 16th May two exhibitions will be opened at Skriðuklaustur. In the Living room three artists will exhibit their works that bring new life to old handcraft traditions and worn clothes. They are: Þórdís Jónsdóttir known for her pillows with traditional flower embroidery; Philippe Recart who uses the old nordic weaving style for his fine textiles; and Ýr Jóhannsdóttir who decorates old jumpers with knitting and embroidery. This exhibition ends on 7th June and is in collaboration with Handverk & Hönnun.
In gallery Klaustur Úlfar Trausti Þórðarson will exhibit his exceptional photographs of landscape. He calls the exhibition Northeast landscape, which derives from that the pictures are taken in the north and east of Iceland. His exhibition ends on 11th June.
