Opening of the season KHMessen Art Park

Opening of the season KHMessen Art Park with new artwork

by the artist Arne Ingvaldsen

Saturday 27 April at 15.00
there will be a season opening with a new work of art in Messen Kunstpark in Ålvik.

The artist Arne Ingvaldsen, from Bergen, has worked in Kunstnarhuset Messen in April and has
created the new artwork in the Art Park.
Mayor Torgeir Næss will be responsible for the official opening.
In addition, the artist himself will tell about his work.

After the opening in the Kunstparken, we would like to invite the public into the Kunstnarhuset Messen.
Arne Ingvaldsen will show a digital presentation of previous sculpture projects and art works he has made.

The other guest artists will also keep the doors of their studios open.
Here you can freely pop in and see what’s going on
and what they are working on.
Coffee and tea are also served in the lounge.


Arne Ingvaldsen (1947) from Os, living in Bergen, is educated at the Bergen Academy of the Arts, and NTNU, Faculty of
architecture and design in Trondheim. With a background as an architect and artist, he often works with
city-specific installations. Whether he takes the entire gallery space in use or as in Messen Kunstpark takes
based on the outdoor area he has available and adapts to the surroundings.
Ingvaldsen has had a number of public art commissions both outside and inside.
He has been and is a visible artist with many solo and group exhibitions.
In 2011 he had here in Kvam a colorful exhibition at Kunsthuset Kabuso, where he used the windows themselves for his works.


All artworks are still in good condition in Messen Kunstpark. With the new work this year, you can now experience it
a total of 9 works.
The earlier works were created by the artists Aud Bækkelund, Simone Hooymans and Gabriell Johann Kvendseth,
Wim van den Toorn, Reinhard Haverkamp, Sjaak Langenberg & Rose de Beer,
Frank Åsnes, Bart Nijboer.
