The exhibition “Winter Snow” opened yesterday in the i8 Gallery in Reykjavík, as did the exhibition “Form-Fegurd-Flaedi” (“Form-Beauty-Flow”) by Páll Gudjónsson in the Art Gallery of Mosfellsbaer, a neighboring town of the capital.
From Páll Gudjónsson’s “Form-Fegurd-Flaedi”.
Gudjónsson, who is an engineer by education and served as mayor of Mosfellsbaer 1982-1992, displays 34 of his photographs which he has shot in the past few years.
“Photography has been my hobby and passion ever since I was a child. As often happens, my hobby subsided into the background while I was studying, raising my children and being busy at work which required all my energy,” Gudjónsson said in a press release.
“Six years ago I picked up where I left off and decided to try out whether I could pursue serious creative photography,” Gudjónsson added. “In these six years I have held one solo exhibition (in Arkhangelsk, Russia) and participated in few group exhibitions.”
The Mosfellsbaer Art Gallery is located in the local library on Thverholt 2 and is open during the library’s opening hours. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Meanwhile, 57 artists from 20 different countries have arrived at Gardur to participate in the art festival “Fresh Winds”, which opened formally on Friday.
