The gallery is adapted in an old farmhouse from 1877 and opened for the first time in the summer of 1999. This season the Gallery Skippergaarden will be celebrating its 20 years anniversary.
Astrid Hygom and Leif H. Jacobsen show paintings, drawings and watercolor. The paintings are mostly inspired by the sea, the dunes, the moor and the meadows around the farmhouse, but also by the harbour of Hvide Sande and the many smaller harbours and boat places along the fjord.
In addition you can see pottery by Jytte Lysgaard and wood works by Verner Nielsen.
Astrid Hygom has made separate exhibitions in many art societies, public institutions and private firms all over Denmark since 1987. Most often her inspiration comes from the marchlands and the harbor of Esbjerg, or the area around the summer studio, the fjord, the sea and the harbor of Hvide Sande.

Leif H. Jacobsen graduated from the Academy of Art in Copenhagen in 1975. He shows watercolors from the Fjord and other places, but also croquis drawings.
Jytte Lysgaard´s pottery is inspired by the marshlands around the village of Hoejer in southern Jutland. She was educated as a potter in 1978 and has had her own workshop since 1986. You will be able to see her raku and pottery for everyday use.
Verner Nielsen´s works are beautifully based on the character of the special sorts of wood.
