The Espolin Gallery is Museum Nord’s only gallery and showcases Kaare Espolin Johnson’s works.
The gallery is open all year round and offers various activities, workshops, and venues for concerts.
This week, Svein Spjelkavik was a fly on the wall when curator Malin Overholth welcomed Hurtigruten tourists. We would like to share his experiences from the visit:
“I was a fly on the wall yesterday when wet, German-speaking guests from Hurtigruten on an excursion stopped by the Espolin Gallery. For some minutes. In a masterful way, Malin sees each one, and welcomes each in particular. She makes everyone feel welcome, and in the short time they have in Espolin’s world gives a brief introduction and a leaflet of text in the language each one speaks. – You can read this on the bus further, smiles Malin.
I didn’t know Espolin, but I’ve talked to a lot of people who loved him. I think he would have loved Malin’s gentle method.”
