Art between ocean and fjord

Kunst i Slusen ART HVIDE SANDE, in collaboration with Holmsland Klit Turistforening, organizes an inspiring 14-day art exhibition in Hvide Sande every year. This unique event, which opens on the first weekend in August, brings art out of traditional settings and into a 120-metre corridor under the drainage lock.

About kunst i slusen

The history of art in the area dates back to the 19th century, when artists such as Laurids Tuxen and Mogens Ballin used Holmsland Klit and Nymindegab as an artist colony. Kunst i Slusen ART HVIDE SANDE carries on this legacy with an ambition to strengthen the understanding of art and present it in non-traditional locations.

Previous artists such as Erik Peitersen, Kaare Norge and Peter Viskinde have contributed to the diversity of the exhibition. The event in 2022 was further spiced up with visits from Sophie Louise Pedersen, Mingo Nørager, and Jacob Haugaard, which created fantastic days in Hvide Sande.
