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.

Galleri Skippergården has been home to the artist couple Astrid Hygom and Leif Horndrup Jacobsen for 25 years now. The nature and the area around the old fisherman's house, the North Sea, the beach, the small harbours in the reed forests along the fjord, Hvide Sande Harbour and the building culture have provided inspiration for Astrid's paintings and graphics and Leif's watercolours.

Verner Nielsen is also participating this year with unique wooden artworks.
