Artist in residency - Art See Ocean Gallery

Most welcome to Art See Ocean Gallery where the forrest meets the sea.
Art See Ocean is run by artists Stefan and Theresa Lekberg.
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.

During the residency we make a short film journal with the artist in a life conversation with us about the process of being here.

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 forrest 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.
