The Collection

The Permanent Exhibition

The Faroe Islands Art Gallery is in possession of a collection of both modern and early Faroese pictorial art. Included in the collection are a number of important works by the most well known Faroese artist, Sámal Joensen-Mikines (1906 -79). A large part of the exhibition space is devoted to his works. Many Faroese artists are represented, including the sculptor Janus Kamaban (1913), the painter and black-and-white artist Ruth Smith (1913-58), the lithographer Elinborg Lutzen (1919- 95), the painter and black-and-white artist Ingálvur av Reyni (1920), the painters Steffan Danielsen (1922 -76), Zacharias Heinesen (1936), and Tummas Arge (1942 - 78) and the sculptor Hans Pauli Olsen (1957).

Special Exhibitions

The Art Gallery presents 4 exhibitions annually – two during spring and two during fall – in the periods Mars 1 - May 31 and September 1 - November 30.

Additionally there are two exhibitions in June and no later than July/August, which are arranged by the Faroese Society of Visual Arts and the Faroe Islands Art Society.

The exhibitions are primarily by Faroese artists, but also with Nordic art or relevance to Faroese art.

For the occasion of exhibitions the Gallery publishes illustrated catalogues containing articles by professionals with an expertise in the history or theory of art.
