We open the entire gallery for you and your group for exhibitions, workshops

and artists' meetings. We have a total of 300 sqm of exclusive gallery area available within the four buildings that are Art See Ocean Gallery and artist in residence. 

It is up to our own creativity how we want to make use of it.

We are currently building collaboration with other art and music organizers around Sweden, where we can have exhibitions and events.

we are organising the program for the spring and summer guests to our artist in residence. By this time we are fully booked in June, it is still possible for you and your group to make a reservation to secure your room in the other months.

Please check out the blog at to see what our previous artists have to say about their experience.

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.
