On October 5th 2013 a new exhibitions space was opened at The Asi Art Gallery.
We call this new space THE PILLAR OF GUNNFRÍÐUR. It is placed on a pillar in the garden where a sculpture by Gunnfríður Jónsdóttir, Going home once stood.
Gunnfríður (1889-1968) was the first woman to work in Iceland as a sculptor and she built the house at Freyjugata together with her husband, Ásmundur Sveinsson, sculptor (1893-1982).
It is in the hands of the exhibiting artist to chose her/his succsessor and the exhibiting period is four months.
