What Meets the Eye – Guided Tour and Exhibition Ending

The exhibition What Meets the Eye, showcasing works by local artist and goldsmith Gunnar Hjaltason, will come to an end on Sunday March 21st. A guided tour of the exhibition will take place that day at 2 p.m., as Unnur Mjöll Leifsdóttir, Interim Director of Hafnarborg, will talk about the exhibition. Joining her will be Sigurjón Gunnarson, son of the artist, who will offer insight into the life and work of his father.

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. Please note that the tour will be in Icelandic.
