Thank you so much for coming out celebrating spring with us!
Our Open Studio was fantastic thanks to you! Personally I had a lot of fun talking about art for two full days and to see both familiar faces as well as new. Stay in contact and check out my blog for updates during the year. Here I post small adventures, in-process work and new artwork that I create.
We at Hunterspoint Shipyard Artists are preparing for our annual Spring Open Studio. This year it happens during the weekend of April 30th and May 1st,2022. We are open this Saturday and Sunday between 11am to 6pm.
Come out and support us, check out our new work and perhaps gift yourself with a beautiful piece or art. There are a lot of different mediums and artists out here and well worth a visit! We are around 300 artists working here and this is one of the biggest art colonies in the USA.
This weekend you will find 110 artists’ opening their doors to the public. You will find local food vendors from the shipyard serving food and drinks between 11-4pm.
Find me in Building 101, Studio 1117!
During the weekend we also have an art auction that will benefit the people from Ukraine. Come and support the good cause. The organizers are: Nova Ukraine, MesArt, STAR and Gooddler. Art donations by Bay Area Artists.
..and on the news they say it is snowing in my old hometown in Sweden. Brrrr, cold!, and how beautiful at the same time. I feel lucky to live in sunny San Francisco, California where it’s not too warm or too cold. This is what we call “lagom” (perfectly in between) in Swedish.
Traditionally I serve “glögg” (mulled wine) during our HOLIDAY PARTY AND ART SHOW, sadly this year due to Covid we will not have any food inside. This tradition will have to wait until next year.
Though!, we are still having our Holiday Party and it is happening this Sunday, December 5th. PLEASE, come and visit us, show your support and have fun. There are art for sale, great ideas for gifts, food vendor and live music.

Editing and selecting images for print, it is an exciting time as I am preparing for our open studio on October 23 & 24 at the shipyard. 😀 After a year of lockdown we are once more ready to open our doors to the public. We are excited and energized! I am crossing my fingers that covid cases stays low and ‘under control’ so we can keep open up our city and state to the world.

Water explores our world’s most essential natural resource as a source of survival, life, and livelihoods. Nineteen contemporary artists with Nordic 5 Arts have created works that respond to the theme of water. Some artists reflect on immigrant journeys by ship or plane across the Atlantic Ocean. Others reflect on the state of water in the face of climate change and the relationship between the Nordic countries and water.
Nordic 5 Arts was founded by Kati Casida in 1993. Nordic 5 Arts is an international organization of professional artists based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Nordic 5 Arts presents a unique Nordic/Scandinavian expression in the visual arts and contributes to the diversity of the arts in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. The organization also promotes ties with contemporary Nordic arts, culture, and design. Nordic 5 Arts is composed of professional artists, primarily of Nordic/Scandinavian descent and artists born in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Nordic 5 Arts is open to all artists and supporters of the arts with a connection to, or appreciation of, Nordic expression in the arts.
