The Sandgrund Art Gallery features artworks created by Lars Lerin – one of the Nordic region’s leading watercolor artists.

Do not miss Lars Lerin’s Sandgrund when you visit Bomstadbaden in Karlstad.

Värmland is a country filled to the brim with culture. Everything from Selma Lagerlöf to Lars Lerin. Lerin is one of Sweden’s foremost artists – and his Sandgrund gallery is in Karlstad.

When visiting our campsite, don’t miss a visit to the art gallery. In this bright and airy space on the headland in Karlstad, you’ll find Lars Lerin’s beautiful paintings. There is also a shop in the art gallery that sells books. Take the opportunity to visit the lovely café, which has a beautiful view of the Klarälven river.

The art gallery is constantly changing

Wouldn’t it be boring in the long run if the same art was shown year after year? Fortunately, Sandgrund is a living gallery where the paintings are rehung about once a year to make room for all the art.

It is not unusual for as much as two thirds of the basic exhibition to be replaced. It’s always worth popping into the art gallery when you visit Karlstad to discover new works by Lars Lerin.
