This year the 70 year old tradition of the Christmas exhibition is re-awakened at Ásmundarsalur on Freyjugata. In the 1940's the exhibition hall housed group shows with works by the country's leading artists alongside works of younger and less known artists. The artist collaborative Print & Friends curate this years exhibition of works by over 100 contemporary artists opening on December 8th at 15:00. According to tradition the works are for sale and can be wrapped in handprinted Christmas wrapping paper. A selection of artists will work in situ producing artworks every day until Christmas.
