A Short Visit to Kragerø – Part 2: A Town with a Great Art History and Many Galleries

There is something special about the coastal town of Kragerø and many artists have created great art here. Among these artists is Edvard Munch who like many others fell in love with the magic light that embraces the landscape, where ocean and land emerge, and create a feel of eternity.

This gallery is a part of Christina Soot Kløvig´s large old house and included her paintings and some of her colleagues´ latest works…
