Three Exhibitions Open at ASÍ Art Museum

The exhibition “Timelight” by Icelandic visual artist Adalheidur Valgeirsdóttir opens in the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík today along with an exhibition of installations by Karl Ómarsson and of landscape paintings by Jóhannes S. Kjarval.

One of Valgeirsdóttir’s paintings.

Valgeirsdóttir’s paintings are on display in the Ásmundarsalur exhibition hall. They depict the nature of light in different seasons.

“Nature around and inside us becomes visible in its natural light, a light that is dominated by time – from autumn to spring,” the artist says of her exhibition.

The Gryfja space is reserved for Ómarsson’s exhibition. The artist holds a Masters degree in Theory and Practice of Transnational Art from The University of the Arts London and lives and works in London.

Kjarval (1885-1972) is one of Iceland’s most beloved artists. The paintings on display come from the museum’s collection and can be found in the Arinstofa exhibition space.

All exhibitions run through June 21 and admission is free.
