About Skaftfell

Austurvegur_500 Skaftfell, based in Seyðisfjörður East Iceland, is a visual art center with the essential role of presenting, discoursing and encouraging the development of contemporary art. It is a meeting point for artists and locals and its activities are based upon exhibitions and events, alongside an international residency program and outreach program. Skaftfell is also the guardian of a very small house previously owned by a local naïve artist Ásgeir Emilsson (1931-1999). In March 2013 Skaftfell received an Icelandic award, Eyrarrósin, for outstanding cultural leadership in a rural area.
