The magic of Nordingrå
Many artists have come to the High Coast and particularly Nordingrå to get inspiration through the years. There are plenty of creative artists in the area and in summer something special happens. The artists living in the area permanently open their studios to the public, and many other artists migrate here for the magical light that can only be found in Nordingrå. Take the time to look at their artworks at galleries and exhibitions, and keep an eye out for open studios as you travel about. The tourist route from Hornöberget to Ullånger is a good road to travel if you want to see lots of art. If you are in Nordingrå, make sure you don’t miss Mannaminne’s permanent exhibition of local artists’ work. Summer exhibitions are organised every year too. Read on to find out about some of the artists working in the area.
