Galleri Skippergården

Experience the Danish West coast nature through works of art. Galleri Skippergården between Hvide Sande and Nymindegab exhibits art works of beaches, harbours, dunes and other beautiful, nature surroundings.

In Bjerregård between Hvide Sande and Nymindegab you will find Galleri Skippergården, where the painter couple Astrid Hygom and Leif H. Jacobsen established themselves in 1999. Jacobsen established themselves in 1999 in the thatched Klitsgård, which was built in 1877 at about the same time as the artists' colony at Nymindegab. Since then, more artists have joined, and a new colony has emerged, attracted by the culture, landscape and people of the North Sea.

Opening hours: from 9 July to 1 September, every day from 02:00-06:00 pm. Closed on Saturdays.
Otherwise open by appointment on tel. +45 2464 9422. The rest of the year, see the website,
