Exhibitions and pop-up galleries

Got an empty store? We know what to do with it! Using empty buildings as galleries has been one of the cornerstones in Nordic Light’s exhibition concept. Since 2006, we have shown over 200 exhibitions in countless pop-up galleries (PUG).

Our invaluable volunteers have, for years, managed to put together high standard PUGs. Their hard work and dedication can turn a decaying store front into an inviting location to ponder and appreciate world class photography – or, transform the council hall from the city’s decision-making hub to a photo gallery during the course of one weekend!

Our photographers deserve great galleries. We strive to provide venues that showcase their exhibitions in all their magnificence – hoping to achieve a rich gallery experience for both the photo- grapher and the public.

Sales exhibitions

Some exhibitions arrive as ’ready to show’, others arrive as prints to be framed while some are delivered as files to be printed here in Kristiansund. Thanks to our print supplier and sponsor Epson – the prefered alternative for photographers all over the world – we are able to print in high quality, making it possible to show many photographers while doing justice to their work.

Many exhibitions show photographs which are for sale, with prices and edition clearly stated. A few exhibitions show photography which may be available for sale upon request. More information is available at each gallery.

Support our photographers and collect photography!
