The Art of Being a Woman

The application for our open exhibition The Art of Being a Woman is now open.

We are now looking for artworks made by women all over the country to be presented in our exhibition opening on International Women's Day 8th of March. Anyone who defines themselves as a woman can apply to be exhibited, whether you are young, old, an amateur, or a professional artist.

The artworks are chosen by a jury of four women: Ditte Lauridsen, Head of Art at Nordiska Galleriet, Charlotte Manning, poet and public speaker, Caroline Dalenson Anchér, founder and Director of gallery Carling Dalenson and Magda Lundberg, artist and cartoonist published in DN and Sydsvenskan.

Miss Clara by Nobis is housed in a building originally constructed in 1910 as the girl’s school Ateneum. The hotel was named Miss Clara by Nobis as a tribute to the beloved and progressive principal Clara Strömberg. With the exhibition The Art of being a Woman, we want to enable women to tell their stories with the help of art.

The exhibition will be on display at Miss Clara by Nobis for a month and all artworks will be for sale. On the opening day, Miss Clara by Nobis will donate 50% of all profits from the restaurant and bar sales to Kvinna till Kvinna, an organization working with the human rights of women in several countries.
