The Sogn og Fjordane Museum of Fine Art is a Norwegian regional art museum which primary purpose is to generate interest for and increase knowledge about the visual arts and the art and crafts in the Sogn og Fjordane region.
Our collections (ca. 4000 artworks) include mostly Norwegian art from the 20th century and onwards. Our exhibitions are mostly based on the collections, but we regularly also show exhibitions of contemporary art.
The museum is situated in five different locations;
The Anders Svor Museum in Hornindal
The Astruptunet; artist home and gallery in Jølster
The Eikaas Gallery in Jølster
Sogn Art Center in Lærdal
Sogn og Fjordane Museum of Fine Art in Førde
We have small bookshops at all of our galleries. At The Sogn og Fjordane Museum of Fine Art in Førde and at The Eikaas Gallery we also have a small art store.
The Sogn og Fjordane Museum of Fine Art was established in the year 2000, as an extension of the former County Art Gallery (founded in 1987).
In 2004, the museum was organized as a foundation including the former Sogn og Fjordane Artist Center (founded in 1983), The Eikaas Gallery (opened in 1994), Astruptunet (the gallery opened in 1986) , The Anders Svor Museum (opened in 1953) and The Gjesme Gallery (opened in 1998, Sogn Art Center since 2011).
Since 2009 the museum is part of the even larger foundation “The Museums in Sogn og Fjordane” (Musea i Sogn og Fjordane).
