Description

Situated at the small community of Straume, in the municipality of Bø (see map / kart), in the beautiful islands of Vesterålen. The Gallery consists of an old farmhouse and a barn.

Galleri Hildreland could be translated into The Gallery of “the land of fata morganas”.

The place “Hildreland” is found in a beautiful fairytale, written by local authoress Regine Normann (1867- 1932). Out here, right by the North Atlantic Ocean, you can often see fata morganas at the horizon. This phenomena has trigged peoples imagination for generations; who lives there, on these island’s that disappear into the sea, without trace?

The gallery sell and exhibits art and crafts from local, and other, Norwegian artists and crafts-men and -women. It is mainly a summer gallery, but it is also open off season, by your request.

Besides the gallery and the shop I some time arrange a concert, meetings, quiz, parties or workshops in the rustic looking localities of the barn. The barn is possible to rent for any suitable purpose; meetings, a meal in rustic environment, a concert, a birthday, and so on. In the summertime it is possible to sit in the garden and have a cup of tea or coffee and a cake.

I, Ingrid Lekven, owner and leader of the gallery, am also a guide and can be hired for guided tours in the area.
If you are an artist or work in other creative occupations, and you want a special place to stay in Vesterålen, this is it! Off season (October - May) you can rent a room with access to a nice kitchen and bathroom at the gallery.

I also dispose of a rorbu (fisherman’s cabin) by the fjord at Straumsjøen, a fishing village nearby.
