Art Sanctuary - and 'The Enchanted Garden' - The Story




THE ENCHANTED GARDEN
 
A celebration of Art and Nature in Dialogue!



This large and natural garden (1,5 ha), situated just near the ‘border’ between the French and the Flemish part of Belgium, hosts a most special Annual International art exhibition; 

Artists are invited from far and near - to exhibit and participate, and collaborate

 - in all different expressions, techniques, media...


Inspired by, and in Dialogue With, Nature. 

Art Sanctuary is a result – and a happy consequence – of the encounter and meeting, and collaboration, between Norwegian artist Tone Aanderaa (www.toneaanderaa.com )

and Ignace Clarysse, Belgian, IT expert, project manager and content-builder (www.ignace-clarysse.com)

 
In 2009 Art Sanctuary arranged 'The Belgian-Norwegian Collaboration'; 12 artists from Norway, The Netherlands, and Belgium, meeting in 2 large exhibitions at HARDANGER FOLKEMUSEUM and HARDANGER KULTURGALLERI

In 2011 Art Sanctuary's 'Enchanted Garden' OFFICIALLY OPENED;

And every year the numbers of visitors have been growing and growing, 

and inspiring us to keep going and going!

 Glimpses from 'The Enchanted Garden' 2014

 
 
2015 we decided to take a needed 'sabbatical-year'...
The garden, and we, rested...
 
When we again opened the gates, in 2016,
our Celebration of Art and Nature in Dialogue included 31 artists
We now have a 'luxury-problem'... needing more parking space...needing more terasse space... (!)
  
Some glimpses from 2016: 
 
 
Wonderful music installations by Barbara Hills:
 
 
 

 

2017:

 
 
Beautiful music installations by Øystein Sævåg:
 
 

 
Art Sanctuary is about artists encountering, meeting - and collaborating - in the Spirit of 
Art Inspired by, and in Dialogue With, Nature.
