2020 – the year that turned out different…
We put on new art exhibitions at Agatunet every season. The volunteers who form the art group put a great deal of work into finding wonderful, interesting artists, and they curate the art exhibitions every year.
This year’s art exhibition has, due to the corona pandemic, been postponed to 2021.
You were supposed to find works by the following artists in Agatunet this year:
Ingunn van Etten
We have a permanent exhibition of costumes – A gift from my mother, a collection of clothing and items from the same family – five generations of folk costumes and national costumes.
This exhibition is taken down due to maintenance and conservation, and will not be available in 2020. The textiles needed a break, and the building is up f0r resoration. A conservator assessment of the objects and site will determine when we again will be able to display objects from this wonderful gift.
Many wonderful old pictures of life on the farm cluster hang at Agatunet, many of which are Georg Fredrik Fasting’s watercolour paintings of Agatunet.
There are also a lot of great items like kitchen utensils and agricultural equipment and tools on display.
