REINE CENTRE OF ARTS AND CULTURE is situated in the centre of Reine i Lofoten, a vibrant fishing village of considerable importance to local trade and industry, coastal culture and tourism. Not least, Reine has been a considerable source of inspiratrion to artists, who have found their way here since the 1800s. Reine’s magnificent location, outermost in the Lofoten Islands, attracts a flood of travellers throughout the year.

THE CENTRE was opened in the summer of 2007, and our objective is to be an arena for a variety of cultural activities: pictorial art, music, theatre, architecture and literature. Today, the centre houses a permanent gallery with pictorial artist Eva Harr’s paintings and a collection of her lithographs. From 2018 we will also be featuring a permanent exhibition of the paintings of Karl Erik Harr. Every summer we have varying exhibitions in three different exhibition halls with emphasis on variation in expression and technique. The Centre also includes an art and souvenir shop with quality products and a rudimentary café.

OUR MAIN SEASON is from June to September, open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. In autumn/winter we open from 10 am to 5 pm, but are closed on Sundays. In the autumn and winter season, we plan to arrange concerts, courses and Christmas events.

IN JUNE 2009 we arranged our first Lofoten International Festival of Literature, “ReineORD, an ocean of books (Click here for details). In 2018 we will be arranging Reine Ord - Lofoten International Literture Festival - for the tenth time.

REINE CENTRE OF ARTS AND CULTURE is owned and run by architect Ole Tørklep, Oslo.
