Österängen art gallery
Are you keen on art that breaks boundaries and norms? Go to Österängen art gallery, which is located near Jönköping's city. This is a place where all different people can meet. It is always free to enter and the art gallery is a special place for new Swedish and international contemporary art. On weekends you can sit down and enjoy in the art gallery's own café. Once a week, there is a language café, where everyone speaks Swedish and have a coffee break together. There is also a shop with fabric bags, literature, posters and locally produced designs. Children and young people can create in the workshop and during the summer various activities are arranged for them.
Three key words in the art gallery's activities are openness, cooperation and diversity. The ambition is to show three exhibitions every term. Here you experience new art such as photo, video installations, sculpture and performance. Studio 476 is the art gallery's experimental area where anyone can show an exhibition for 14 days.
Every Sunday afternoon, the children's workshop is open for you between 6-12 years who want to be creative and learn new techniques. With inspiration from what is shown in the art gallery, you can create your own artwork together with an art teacher.
During the summer months, several creative activities are offered for children and young people. To see what is available you can check out the art gallery's website www.osterangenskonsthall.se or the Facebook page.
Österängen art gallery works just like Tensta art gallery, Botkyrka art gallery and Art gallery C in Farsta to make contemporary art easy to reach for everyone. How old you are or where you come from will never be an obstacle. People who would not have met otherwise, do so in the art gallery.
The art gallery takes advantage of the expertise that exists locally and welcomes collaborations with artists, associations, companies and organizations. With its 300 members, Österängen art gallery is one of Jönköping's largest cultural associations. It is run by a non-profit association with the same name.
