October November December residence at Art See Ocean Gallery

Dive into your creation and experience fall, in the heart of Sweden, where the forest meet the sea.

Description of residency program
Welcome to Art See Ocean Gallery

We are a artist run residence and located in the middle of a nature reserve in Sweden, where the forest meets the sea.

We offer studio space, private room and food for 375 € per week. Minimum stay 2 weeks.

We are now open for applications for residency in October, November and December.

The residency is located in a nature reserve and outside the kitchen window is probably the most beautiful archipelago around Sweden. 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.

In the autumn the forest explodes in color and when October comes the morning frost bites the grass. The world is shimmering white and the air is fresh and cold. As the darkness closes in a internal journey can begin sitting by the fire. Its like a wake, a process of dying and giving back to earth what seeds was born in spring and summer ignited in your being.

The perfect time to go into Studio. Go into silence to hear the pulse, to speak new words with a voice derived from quietude, hibernate and create from your self new.

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

The studio in the big house is 45 square meters and depending on how much space you need there are plenty of rooms in the facilities.

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. If you are a writer that is also perfect. If you are a musician, you are in good company, we are happy to have you here.
