The annual event open doors to artist studios in Majorna every spring and has done so for the past 20 years. 2017 is no exception – quite the reverse – with 73 participating artists and a large exhibition at Röda Sten Art Centre.

This year the art tour offers both bus tours and guided walks during the Saturday and Sunday, but you can of course explore the neighbourhood on your own too.

Konstrundan i Majorna is the largest of its kind in Gothenburg and you can get a peek into studios doing everything from ceramics or textile design to watercolour or wood work. We give you five names, among the participating artists, to remember.

1. Ceramics and illustration: Ida Erika Abrahamsson

Ida Erika Abrahamsson works with utility goods, often inspired by for example cbildren's books. Keep an eye out for her rabbit candle holders.

2. Wood, metal and glass: Jan Järlehed

Jan Järlehed is for example designing wooden toys for BRIO, but he also creates playful cabinets and works in materials such as wood, metal and glass.

3. Watercolour: Eva Kylberg Johanson

Eva Kylberg Johanson is painting landscapes and nature in watercolour, but flirts with a graphic and contrast-filled expression.
