Art and artistic craftsmanship
In Løkken, you can see many sculptures created by local artists.
Galleri Løkken, owned by the artist John Kristensen, is located in one of Løkken's oldest houses. The gallery is decorated as a studio and an exhibition. In the summer, the painter John Kristensen is often seen in town or on the beach behind an easel.
Do not forget Bolcheriet at the town square, a must for everyone with a sweet tooth - and for those, who want to experience the old craftsmanship and see candy being made in a traditional way!
Visit also Galleri Friis and the changing exhibtions in the art pavilion at Sdr. Strandvej. Galleri Munken south of Løkken is also worth a visit.
Keep an eye out, when you are driving around in the area - there are many exciting galleries and artists outside of town, along the main roads and country roads in the small towns! Visit Børglum Abbey, which has many exciting exhibitions and events throughout the year. The art exhibition at the abbey has a lot of variety, from sculptures to paintings, and it always has atmospheric and engaging exhibitions in any season.
If you search a bit further east, in Vrå, there is an Art museum in Vrå with Engelund's collection. The Art museum in Vrå represents Denmark at JCE Biennalen, which is an exhibition that includes a certain number of young talents and their work. Biennalen is held every second year, and it lasts for two years, during which the works from European collaboration all get their turn at the exhibition.
East of Løkken lies Vrensted and PondCottage Art gallery with bronze sculptures and ceramics. Listen to the artist, Bodil Dam, talk about her soulful sculptures during Easter.
In Nørre Lyngby and Vittrup, you will find the felt workshop, Kajoli, which provides workshops and courses with many different qualities of wool and other materials for felting. There is also a shop at the studio.
