Kunsthal vARTe opened the doors in 2015 and is a place where artists can be both inspired and allowed to work with their art in a beautiful setting. The gallery is placed in a former factory building from the 1800’s, right in the middle of Varde. A lot of the features from the old buildings have been preserved during the restoration. The paving stone in the little yard are imported from Copenhagen where they used to encircle the old Opera House. The lamps on the first floor have also been transported from Copenhagen where they used to light up the capital’s streets and boulevards.
The building serves as a gallery, an open atelier and a residence for artists who thereby get the opportunity to make a creative space for themselves by living, working and exhibiting in the gallery. The gallery is also a community centre with events, concerts and lectures.
