In Henningsvær, you will be able to visit Galleri Lofotens Hus, which is often referred to as the national gallery of Northern Norway. The Gallery houses Norway’s biggest collection of paintings from Lofoten from this period, which is often referred to as the Golden Age of North Norwegian pictorial art.
Frank A. Jenssen’s Video Panorama, which by many has been called a masterpiece in itself, consists of the sounds of nature, music and photographs from Lofoten throughout the seasons.
This year Galleri Lofotens Hus also proudly present a new exhibition – “Cod – the fish that formed the nation of Norway”. The exhibition is based on the book by Frank A. Jenssen published in 2012 and bearing the same title. Here, Jenssen maintains that without the cod, Norway would not have had the power and resources to establish a nation. Furthermore, Jenssen claims that historically, the cod has not been given the attention it deserves – something we will now attempt to rectify in our new exhibition here at Gallery Lofoten House.
The number of visitors has increased year by year, and as of 2016 about 100,000 people visit the gallery every year, a fact which makes Galleri Lofotens Hus one of the best visited art galleries in Norway.
