Winter reseidence - Art See Ocen

Welcome to Art See Ocean a residence in the Swedish archipelago. Solitude in nature by the sea.

Artist in residence - Art See Ocean Gallery
Most welcome to Art See Ocean Gallery where the forest meets the sea.
In this residence we offer artists a retreat, a place in nature and solitude.
And the inner journey that naturally takes place when being with yourself in nature.
As Stefan says: "Beauty is the hardest to take in, you have to prepare it its own space".
During the residency we make a short film with the artist in a life conversation with us about the process of being here.

Art See Ocean
The residency is located in a nature reserve and outside our kitchen window is probably the most beautiful archipelago around Sweden. It is a eldorado for sailing and paddeling ocean kayaks.
If you want to explore the ocean you can rent a sailing boat with skipper or a kayak for paddeling.
In the beautiful forest outside the door you can find "Sörmlandsleden", witch has Swedens longest hiking trails, with fire places and windbreaks if you want to spend the night. Bring your tent and sleeping bag or we provide you with outdoor gear for rent.

Different kind of arts- who are you
If you are a painter it is easy because we are painters and have studios.
Film-workers have been here working with their movies and loved it here.
