This weekend Sunnhordlan Museum are opening their doors, inviting to a pre-Christmas event.

Making an art-exhibition is a pretty big job. The main part of it certainly being the making-process. But there are other, important parts as well. Like curating it, choosing which pieces to include and which to leave out, and where everything goes. (Especially when working with your own art when you have feelings connected to […]
