Upcoming Strong men 2024

Now the Strong Women exhibition has ended and work has begun on the upcoming Strong Men exhibition. The new exhibition will be somewhat different than for Strong Women. Theme and power animal are the same. Even men are involved in things that often no one talks about. There is a kind of shame in admitting as a man that you have experienced something that can perhaps be interpreted as weakness - often in the treatment of other men. The demands or standards placed on both women and men are sometimes completely unreasonable. We are all human, need to see each other as such and that we all live together on this planet. Without one or the other, nothing can exist. We need each other, in a good way, where love and care reign in harmony. The men who are in this sequel to Strong Women want to change our way of thinking, talk openly about what they have been through and break the often unreasonable norms that prevail and start talking more openly about those questions and issues. Once and for all! More information about the exhibition will come in the spring of 2024.

Don't miss an exhibition with three creative artists in March!

The gates will be opened on Saturday, March 2 at 14: 00-18: 00 at Hillerström's studio where you meet three new fantastic artists - Björn Johansson, Bitte Eggers and Anita Lindholm, who all exhibit throughout March. At the longest, the exhibition is going on until March 29th.

Solvej grew up in Enköping and Västerås. In 1987 she moved to Varberg where she lived for thirty years and then chose to return to Västerås again in 2016.
She learned to paint in her teens through a painting course with Inga-Lill Torstensson as a teacher. Solvej is also trained in art at Folkuniversitetet.
After a great sadness, the desire to create and painting disappeared but it came back twenty years later. She then got new inspiration and the desire back. From oil to now acrylic. And what works she creates then! Don't miss these wonderful creations!

Karin had art as an interest already during school hours. She has attended Västerås art school and went out in 1967 under the teachers Erik Segerberg, Tore Hultqrants, Erik Idar and Osmo Isaksson. She has since worked with graphics and created which also led her to Italy, Spain, England, Öland, Åland, Gotland, Bornholm and Österlen. Inspiration has also come from Asia and Africa during trips there. Karin has been shown in all possible contexts - eg cultural night, at studio five brushes and in several separate and collection exhibitions. She now paints in watercolor. You see her amazing work here at Hillerströms.

TINA ELIASSON


Exhibition August 3 - August 31
Vernissage August 3 at 12: 00-17: 00, Blomstergatan 5, Västerås


Creation has always been in Tina's life in one form or another. Already as a young man she drew and painted a lot, which then had to stand back for other creative expressions. Now she has found back the painting for some time. As an autodidak artist, with some courses here and there, she uses mixed realistic and abstract elements. Most of it is shaped and inspired by an idea, thought, some text, feeling or image. Acrylic is now warm to the heart. Therefore, do not miss out to consider Tina's beautiful visual arts.

INGA-MARIE AHLGREN


Exhibition September 7 - September 30
Vernissage September 7 at 12: 00-18: 00, Blomstergatan 5, Västerås


In Inga-Maria's paintings you meet women and girls, where there is conveyed there.
The history of our foremets and our ancestors gives traces in our hearts.
Days are shaped before any of them are pour.
All people are affected by their own history,
Here and now, and of what has been before.
Long before, in history.

WERONICA SJÖBERG


Exhibition September 7 - September 30
Vernissage September 7 at 12: 00-18: 00, Blomstergatan 5, Västerås


Weronica has a very own style where strong colors and shapes are shown through swirls, fantasy images, emotions and its own expression of color and shape. Although the images are often unreal, they strongly demonstrate the emotions of reality and the journey of life. They grab you in a way that makes you not get away. You are withdrawn. You are drawn.

MARIA ÖSTENSSON 


Exhibition October 5 - October 30
Vernissage October 5 at 14: 00-19: 00, Blomstergatan 5, Västerås

Meeting her creations during the month of October.

KLINNE OLSSON - INGER J LÖFSTEDT - LISELOTTE LUNDGREN


Exhibition 2 November - November 30
Vernissage November 2 at 14: 00-20: 00, Blomstergatan 5, Västerås


Meet a co -exhibition of three fantastic ladies where each work of art is its own artistic expression of form and person.


Klinne is a relatively new artist and passionate. Suddenly one day, only the creative creation was there. In watercolor and acrylic, Klinne creates completely unique figurines and curvature. Strong colors and patterns grab you and Klinne manages to capture images where others do not see and create a world of their own animals and creations.


Inger has always had creation through life, with a few gaps and then remains. By trying most things and constantly learning new, the art is driven forward. The technicians are therefore often acrylic, watercolor, mixed media and collage. Strong color flows are consistently in her work.


Liselotte conveys its thought images through various forms of wood sculptures. The feeling, the vein and colors of the wood lead her forward to the final work. It becomes everything from reality -related fantasy figures or understandable faces and expressions. Liselotte also handles ceramic art where sculptures take shape. She also loves to paint and then preferably nature with emotions from reality and what is in mind.
