Skaraborgsalon (Skaraborgsalongen) is a jury-judged exhibition and a meeting place for aspiring artists and professionals, where everyone participates in the same premises and the arts and the creative force are in focus. Out off 299 artist that applied I was one among 37 artists that will be part of the exhibition which will be held at Skövde arthall. The opening will be held on 16th of April.

Galleri Backlund Vårsalong 2019

In 2019 I was selected to be part of Gallery Backlunds Vårsalong (spring saloon). I was one of the 52 artist that was selected to be part in this very diverse and well curated (paintings, photos, sculptures) exhibition with three of my recent inkwash paintings.
