THE ARTS DOT INTERNATIONAL EVENT 2019
The Arts Dot 2019 was a collective art exhibition in the centre of Karlskrona. Artists from different countries have shown interest in participating and responded to the open call for the second edition of The Arts Dot. We received applications from Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Brazil, England, Spain, France, Germany, Turkey, Iran, Nigeria and Sweden. Artists from Brazil, Spain, Germany, France, Finland, Poland and Sweden (Blekinge and Skåne) participated and travelled to Karlskrona.
The central joint exhibition took place in Wachtmeister Galleria on Borgmästaregatan 3 in Karlskrona. Visitors voted for the exhibition’s Best Art, and the jury selected artists for a gallery representation. Artists selected by the jury, also a winning artist of People’s Choice – Best Art of the Arts Dot 2019, received special recognition and a comprehensive art exhibition at the gallery Konstnären & Pinaulen on Björkholmsplan. All artists received a certificate of participation.
Carl-Martin Lanér, the Municipal Director of Karlskrona, warmly welcomed attendees to the exhibition and delivered an opening speech. The event featured a range of programs such as art exhibitions, artist talks and conversations, live painting, a joint dinner on the opening day, and a networking after-party at the end of the event.
