Nils Aas Kunstverksted – Museum, Gallery and Workshop
Nils Aas Kunstverksted is a museum for one of Norway’s most significant sculptors, Nils Aas. The art workshop is situated in the town centre of Straumen, near his childhood home.
At the workshop you can experience several of his artwork through a three-dimensional installation, with sculptures, drawings and reliefs which together convey his life and work. His iconic sculpture «Bauta» of stacked firewood is showcased in the middle of the gallery.
Nils Aas (1933-2004) grew up in Straumen in his father’s furniture workshop. This is where the first wooden sculptures were whittled and the foundation was laid. His debut as a sculptor took place at the autumn exhibition in 1964, and in 1972 he made his breakthrough with the statue of King Haakon VII at the 7.June -square in Oslo. Nils Aas’s list of work is long and includes a wide range of techniques, materials and artistic expression.
In addition, Nils Aas Kunstverksted showcases temporary exhibitions with Norwegian –and Scandinavian contemporary art. More information on current exhibitions on their web site.
Nils Aas feature an open workshop all through the summer season, where you can have a go at clay work, drawing and painting. They also organise workshop activities, like courses, teaching and a workshop club for children (Ekornklubben).
The sculpture park Muustrøparken is just a stone’s throw away and is a popular destination both because of its 11 sculptures by Nils Aas and its botany. Nils Aas Kunstverksted offer guided tours of the park and its diverse content.
