BAER ART CENTER hosts short residency sessions, workshops and classes for deeply committed visual artists, architects and designers.
The art center’s objective is to bring together talented individuals from all over the world in order to create a dynamic visual conversation between them, share with them the natural environment and dramatic setting of Baer, and to leave with them a deep influence of Icelandic nature.
BAER ART CENTER offers accommodations and first class facilities for its summer residents for a minimal fee. Travel cost, travel and accident insurance and all material costs are the responsibility of the applicant.
BAER ART CENTER provides an exceptional natural environment, first class accommodations, uninterrupted time and private space for internationally diverse groups of visual artists, designers and architects so they may foster and deepen their creative spirit.
The art center is located on a beautiful seaside farm in Northwestern Iceland, approximately 400km (4 hour drive) from the capital, Reykjavik. Its setting on the east coast of Skagafjördur, a large fjord facing the Arctic Circle, provides access to the ocean, a freshwater lake, extensive birdlife, outdoor activities and Icelandic farm life. The summer months at Baer offer the midnight sun and sublime light conditions during the long hours of daylight.
