The joy of creating often overwhelmes me when working at the studio. I hope it is a bit contagious! Keep up being creative, make art not war!

Hello World!

Global project “Hello World”, initiated by the renowned arts and cultural organization “Trans Cultural Exchange” , http://www.transculturalexchange.org/ . The project aims to continue to encourage international exchange among artists, showcase diverse works to new audiences and foster dialogue among people of many different cultures – without having to leave their homes.

Below is a link to Hello World, an international project where artists throughout the world have submitted art works to share with all of us. We hope you enjoy this gesture of goodwill and solidarity from our colleagues around the globe.

Our landscape welcomed the artists

Welcome Migle Duncikaite and Gonzalo Rodriguez to Västra Örträsk and Ateljé A-M residency! Our landscape welcomed the artists in residence with beautiful snow and some sunshine the first few days.

We hope you will enjoy your stay here and find inspiration and tranquility for your artistic work.
