What Meets the Eye – Creative Print Workshop

Saturday March 6th at 2 p.m. a creative print workshop for families will be held in connection to What Meets the Eye, an exhibition of Gunnar Hjaltason’s work. Gunnar’s work will be viewed, his methods and technique discussed. Guests will then have the opportunity to work on their own graphic artworks.

The exhibition What Meets the Eye is on view until March 21st. Gunnar Hjaltason (1920-1999) worked in Hafnarfjörður as a goldsmith for years, but the arts were his true passion. His works were exhibited widely in Iceland. He painted in oil, acrylics and watercolor, but the exhibition focuses on his prints, many of which belong to the Hafnarborg Collection. The images depict landscapes, town views of Hafnarfjörður and the Icelandic nature.

Guests born in 2005 and earlier are required to wear masks and a distance of two meters should be kept between unrelated individuals.
