Sigtryggur Bjarni Baldvinsson 360 Days and Paintings Akureyri Art Museum, Ketilhús, March 4ᵗʰ - April 16ᵗʰ Sigtryggur Bjarni Baldvinsson was born in Akureyri, 1966. He studied visual art in Akureyri, Reykjavík and France. He has held more than 30 solo exhibitions and his work is owned by all major art museums in Iceland. The photo project 360 Days in The Botanical Garden was originally commissioned by the Hallgrímskirkja’s Art Association. The work is inspired by the life and fate of the priest and poet Hallgrímur Pétursson, yet having a much broader implication. It consists of around 80 photographs taken over the period of 360 days in a small flower garden in Brighton, UK. The work addresses the cycle of matter within the biosphere and the eternity and revival one can sense in that. The paintings in the exhibition are, on the one hand “striped pictures” created with Karl Kvaran’s recycled gouache, and on the other hand oil paintings of sparkling or shimmering water surfaces.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
