At the conclusion of Gunnella's Art Residency in Siglufjörður, there was an exhibition in the residence that featured the paintings done during her month-long residency. It was a well attended event in this tiny fishing village in the north that holds so many fond childhood memories for Gunnella of visiting her grandmother, memories and inspiration for her art. Visit the Siglufjörður Art Residence web site HERE.
