Description

Kragerø Art Association welcomes you to exciting exhibitions on the second floor at P. A. Heuchs Gate 6.

Our association was established in 1935, on initiative of Erik Areritz. In November in the same year, the first exhibition was arranged at Legatsalen with several artists such as Guido Schjølberg, Ole Kornin, Olaf Tangen and Per Lia. Since then, the art association held exhibitions of such as Collett, Thaulow, Krohg, Schjølberg, Tangen etc.

Kragerø Art Association has had several premises throughout years. From 1971 to the end of the 1980s, the association was held at a beautiful hall in Wiborggåren. At that time Kragerø Art Association was renewed in many ways, and the old principles are still fundamental of our now existing association. It was a rich time for the association in Wiborggården. It pursued high quality, and a rich selection of both national and foreign artists were viewed, together with exhibitions of National Gallery. The hall became suitable for first-class concerts, both for Concerts Norway and other performers. Afterwards, Wiborggården developed oneself as a culture house, and further, it was needed for private purposes. Eventually Kragerø Art Association ended up in today's premises at P. A. Heuchs Gate 6.

Would you like to be a member of Kragerø Art Association? Our association is open for everyone, both for residents and guests, and everyone is welcome.
The membership costs for a family NOK 250, single member NOK 150, student/senior NOK 100 and senior couple NOK 130.
