Festivals

Norway

Galleria Artfestival is an artist-run initiative, run by visual artists to present their and others projects. This might approximate a traditional art gallery space in appearance or function, or it may take a markedly different approach, limited only by the artist's themselves.

Workshops, social happenings and networking is some of the prime goals of Galleria Artfestival.

Galleria Art festival took place for the first time in 2006. The festival is taking place in Mosjøen, Norway, from July 12th to July 19th, 2008. The slogan for the festival is "Norway's longest gallery"; and every possible space of the old historical part of Mosjøen is being used to present different kinds of art. The old tree houses in the historical part of Mosjøen in northern Norway contain stores, galleries, dwellings, restaurants, museum and so on. This environment gives great surroundings and hospitality for both art and artists and spectators as well.Take a stroll in this environment and look for picturesque details.

Galleria uses the slogan ”Norways longest gallery” due to the fact that you have to take your shoes for a walk over a distance of 7-800 meters to watch the exhibitions.

*Exploit the distinctive stamp of the town Mosjøen and give great adventures
