Fresh Winds in Garður

What a coincidence! Last month, the Grapevine gave a few tips on how to catch sight of the Northern lights, and this month the nearby town of Garður is hosting an international art festival dedicated to the elusive green glow. Located on the north west tip of the Reykjanes peninsula, Garður is a small fishing village exposed to harsh winds and recognized as a prime spot for watching the Aurora Borealis. ‘Fresh Winds’ is a collaborative art project involving numerous local and foreign artists, many of whom have been in residence at Garður for the past eight weeks. The result of their residence will be exhibited in Garður beginning on January 6th in the form of exhibitions, installations, concerts, presentations and screenings. For a more detailed program of events, visit

When: Exhibition opens Friday, January 7th, 13:00- 18:00, runs until January 23
Where: Sunnubraut 4, Garður, Reykjanes (Just west of Keflavík airport)
How Much: Free
