Art at camping - exhibition
Arts and crafts related exhibitions in Långasjönäs.
BeskrivningVan Jepp organizes, together with Långasjönäs Camping & Stugby, several arts and crafts related exhibitions, in their Pop-up shop, from April 1 to the end of September 2022. During the periods 1/4 - 31/5 & 1/8 - 30/9, 14 local artists participate with paintings and sculptures and during June and July, 9 persons from Blekinge Folkhögskola will exhibit what they have made when using Van Jepp's fabrics in a project. For the project together with Blekinge folkhögskola, Van Jepp will collaborate with Photographer Cecilia Jägenmark to take pictures of the participants' work. These pictures will be displayed in the gallery along with some of the finished sewing works.
In addition to visiting the Pop-up shop and gallery, you can also enjoy a good coffee, paddle, swim, play mini golf, hike, etc. in the area. The opening hours for the shop and gallery are the same as those of the campsite's reception.
Van Jepp creates their own design fabrics and interior products in an explosion of colors.
The colorful design fabrics do not follow trends but are based on an artistic collaboration between Karel and Helena. Van Jepp's imagery is always based on a specific part of the human body, an element of nature or a detail of architectural design.
Van Jepp was founded in June 2013 by Helena Jeppsson from Sweden and Karel Vanrietvelde from Belgium. The couple met in 2011 in Sweden during the 21st World Scout Jamboree in Rinkaby, Skåne, and from that meeting not only love but also creativity sprouts. The base for Van Jepp is an image library founded in 1997 by Karel, which until Van Jepp's start has only been used for his art.
Van Jepp is a company that wants to be at the forefront when it comes to sustainability. That is why they work with companies, within the EU, who think in the same way. A Van Jepp product is made from as durable materials as possible that at the same time provide a quality product. A large part of the interior products are handmade by Helena and Karel.
