Art, Handcrafts & Galleries
Exploring Artistic Inspirations & Traditions
Art and creativity. Moderism and Tradition. Soft and Hard. Flat and rolling. The variation, light and colours of the Skåne countryside have long inspired artists and craftspeople. Today, there are as many interpretations as there are forms of expression and inspiration can come like a bolt from the blue or after hundreds of years of tradition.
Galleriet is in Dalköpinge where you will find art featuring the Skåne Plains, the stony coastline and well-known paintings of the area including the colourful Skåne Plains Ladies. The gallery is being rebuilt and will also include a café and shop.

Art & handcrafts in Smygehuk
At the southernmost tip of Sweden in Smygehuk, the huge ancient white warehouse Köpmansmagasinet stands in stark contrast to the blue of the Baltic sea and sky. Each Easter and all summer long you will find local art, handcrafts and exhibitions on two floors behind the weather-beaten double doors. Breathe in the atmosphere, admire the art and let yourselves be swept up by Skåne creativity.
